Here’s another quilting needle from Jeana Kimball’s Foxglove Cottage. And seriously folks, if the maxim – the smaller the quilting needle, the smaller the quilt stitch – is true; then this needle better give you teeny, tiny stitches. Heavens!
These English quilting needles are our replacement for the lovely Jean Lyle quilting needles.
This is a good standard size. They come bigger, and they come smaller, but this is the size most hand quilters use.
Having said that, I tend to use the smaller size 11. No idea why. I just do!
I like the way these Foxglove Cottage needles are packaged – in a little tube. There are 16 needles in the tube.
I’m sad to learn Jean Lyle and her husband Bill have retired. This means my most favorite needles of all time are no longer available. There are still a few in stock but when they are gone – well…. you know the rest.
I did some research and have decided to offer Jeana Kimball’s Foxglove Cottage needles in their place. These needles also come from England; they are in a little plastic case. And there are 16 needles in each case.
We are starting off with the Betweens/Quilting needles in size 11 as we no longer have any of the smaller sized Jean Lyle quilting needles available.
