What's the point?


 There are many types of sewing needles used for different types of projects with most names indicating what they're used for, like quilting needles, upholstery needles and leather needles. Some have other names based on the shape or point such as ball point, sharps and curved. Basically they all work the same way, you just base your choice on the size of the eye for which type of thread will fit through and the size of the shaft that will poke through your fabric without leaving a gaping hole behind. If you ever spill an entire box of pins or needles as I have done, don't forget a magnet can make the clean up much easier without jabbing your delicate sewing fingers.
