Sewing needles

Post by Mangetout » Thu Oct 03, 2019 8:57 pm

I like to hand sew but struggle to find quality needles here in France. They seem blunt. Does anyone out there sew and, if you do, are there any brand names you would recommend. Thanks in advance.

Thank you Elizabeth, that is kind of you, but I think I'll look online as bubbles1 suggests.

Bohin are fine. Went round the factory on a Sewing Group trip.
Enjoy your sewing!
