Binding Needles…

You all know I like to make your quilting life as easy as possible…So here’s a question…I bet most of you use whatever needle is in the pincushion to bind a quilt…Some of you will have a favorite, but most do not…

You may at some point bought needles specifically to bind, but which ones were they again?  Straw needles…or were those for appliqué??? Milliners??? What are those for?   So…if you do not have a hardcore favorite or even if you do… I want to introduce you to Primitive Gatherings Binding Needles…They are labeled BINDING NEEDLES…They are long so your hands do not cramp, thin…but not bendy…and they have a nice eye for threading…I can thread these needles with no trouble at all while traveling in the truck sewing binding…I am especially in love with these as they did not put holes in my fingers when I had to stitch 5 bindings on in 1 1/2 days for Quilt Market this year…

So next time when you are shopping at Primitive Gatherings…make a note to add these to your cart or why wait…buy some for your friends too…they will LOVE you for it!!! Click here to find them on our site…  BINDING NEEDLES

Below is the complete line of needles that Primitive Gatherings offers…

Chenille Needles in two sizes…for wool appliqué…our #24s are shorter and sharper than any others on the market…

Big stitch for quilting with perle cotton…and long sturdy basting needles…


Have a great week!!!

    Did you get this email? I have to say, this time she’s wrong. I LOVE Bohin needles. They slip right through the fabric. They are also long. Can be hard to find. Hmmmm……. maybe they carry at Blue Bar. Seems I saw them there.

    I guess I am a needle snob. I would need to know where your binding needles are manufactured. I still use my John James MADE IN ENGLAND Sharps needles – no, not the newer ones which are not made in England. I consider them among my most precious sewing items. Yours may be equally as good but I would need to know where they are sourced before trying them.

    I bought the binding needles in Shipshewana, can’t wait to use them. Love the other needles. Thanks, Lisa for taking care of us. I do appreciate you and your continued teachings.

    I have used Milliners needles to bind for a few years now. I love how they glide through the fabric, but the eyes are small and can be tricky to thread. And they do bend under pressure. I’ll have to give these a try. First I will see if I can source them at the local shops that carry your stuff.

    Well now I’ll have to give these a try as I will have 3 lap sized quilts coming back to me from the long arm quilter soon. I tell everyone about your #24 Chenille needles and we now carry both sizes at the little shop I work at. I’ll have to see if she will order these now too and then I’ll have another product to tell all the quilters about !!! Love seeing your posts !

    I have a king size quilt to be bound as soon as I get it from the quilters. Lisa hasn’t steered me wrong yet with her tips so I’ve ordered these and I don’t think I’ll be disappointed.

    I’m having trouble checking out. Apparently, I’ve ordered before and didn’t write down my password. Thanks. Charlene Higginbotham

    These binding needles sound ideal. Only thing is… I find that once I find a needle I love… I end up using it for everything under the sun. As always, I appreciate all the help you give us.
