Great Applique Needles01/07/2019 ByJann Prince Bohin needles are well known for their quality. These needles are great for nearly invisible hand applique. Because they are thin I thought they would bend easy since I tend to stitch tightly but the don't. I used to use embroidery needles because they are easier to thread but I didn't like that my stitches showed more. I have the clover purple needle threader. Works like a charm with these needles. Most of all I liked the great price. Will order again from this shop.
