your sewing hand. Use thick and short needles against densely woven
materials hurt sewing hands. Relatively long needle, thin needle
with sharp points and smooth surface are key to better hand sewing

and hand applique and all general hand sewing of general projects; S: for finest needle turn applique using the finest and densest weave
fabrics, such as batik fabrics etc.

hands and your applique designs are around simple to intermediate
level skill: meaning with reasonably wide seams (such as 1/4inch or
1/8 in wide seams) and your projects materials are general
commercial materials. Size S needle can be used for all level
needle turn applique but it is a must for advanced needle turn
skills with very fine seams to turn!

quality and densities of commercial materials. Size L needle is
great and more comfortable for quilters and sewers with large
hands. Just make sure you choose looser weave materials to sew with
thicker needles! Thimblelady's fine cotton satin is the very best
for fine stitches as well as ease of quilting! Try it, you will
know what I am talking about!
