    I noticed after I opened a package of hand sewing needles, that I purchased at Joann’s, they are covered in something that looks like shiny metal but feels like plastic. I’m trying to find regular hand sewing needles. Can anyone suggest a brand name and where I can find these needles? They said at Joann’s that I can buy a pin cushion that will sharpen the old ones that I have but I’d rather buy some more.

    This was on my mind recently too. I thought there must be some kind of upgraded hand sewing needles. I found some at a Japanese fabric shop called Tulip brand (though I wonder whether they’re Korean as they had some specifically for pojagi, in addition to others).

    They feel pretty amazing going through cloth.

    I wasn’t sure what the difference was between the #8 and #9, looks like it’s length.

    And oh, they are Japanese.

    Kind of an amazing page, worth a look. I’ve never seen so much detail on needles before.

    Ooh, those look great. I love her videos, she’s got this kind of funny, quirky way of talking about things.

    In the mail, but they are not fancy ones. #9 sharps. 🙂
