Joann's is having a sale - 50% off of the Notions Wall. I thought this would be a perfect time to stock up on notions! Threads - got some and will try them out. I've been using LQS thread but love the 50% off prices better. Needles -I went to the sewing department (by the sewing machines) and found some packaged needles in the size I need. Put some in my cart today and bought them. Then remembered I forgot something in the QUILTING section and went back in. There on the quilting rack were needles in the cute little plastic cases.
SO... what is the different between sewing needles and quilting needles? The size of the needles appear to be the same - numbers are the same anyway. Is there a difference or are they just packaged differently?
Singer - "Universal Regular Point Needles" is what I bought in the sewing department. I also got "Universal Heavy Duty Needles" for denim.
Generally speaking - I am using my machine for quilting.
