You will need:

  • Sharps size 10 or 11 embroidery needles

If you find the eye of the needle is too small you could also use:

  • Crewel embroidery needles in size 10 or 11.

My preference is for Bohin needles, but you can use any good quality needles such as John James or Richard Hemming.  A good place to buy embroidery needles in Colonial Needle Company. or John James Needles.
