I kickstart the journey with a trusty size 7 Embroidery Needles when I conduct my introductory embroidery classes. These needles are the perfect starting point, offering a sharp point for precision and a more generous eye than the typical Sharp needle.

These sizes strike the perfect balance for various embroidery projects, making them incredibly versatile. Whether you’re a seasoned stitcher or embarking on your embroidery journey, you’ll find these sizes your trusted companions.
