    I want to try these. My LQS does not carry them so the internet is my next stop. I looked at a few sites--what size do you prefer?? Any brand you like better than another?

    I like LONG needles and am looking for a longer needle that bends easily to finish my appliqued blocks.

    TIA,

    My sister sent me to this site. Their needle threaders are the finest wire possible. I love them and their needles.
