Best known for use in hand applique, the Straw Needle has a narrow shank that glides easily through several layers of fabric. Since the eye of the needle is punched within the existing shank, it does not hesitate at the eye when pulled through fabric. The Straw needle is also useful for basting, hand piecing, and applique. This Straw needle card contains one each of every size of Straw needle. It is an inexpensive way to sample all of the different sizes to find the right one for your project and your hand.
