Hello everyone,

I posted a topic regards what needles to use to create a mini. Well I went in search of size 10 quilting needles. The smallest I could find was 5 - 9!!!! I know they go down to a like 15! I'm pretty angry as I'm halted in working trying to find a small needle! I've tried a bigger one but it's just not possible, The wholes where the threads come through are too big and just show the stitching.

I'm going bonkers here!

Is there anyone who can get 10 or lower needles for hand sewing near them? I can pay postage and the cost of them... Or someone who has some spare, I will also pay the cost of the needles and the postage!

Thanks a bunch,

Richy~

Richy, have you tried getting them from Woolworths? That's where I got mine from and they go down really quite small. And they're cheap too!
