I need to do some hand sewing on batik fabric. It is always a real pain to try and stitch this so I thought maybe I could find a finer or better needle to use. I make neckties and I need to hand stitch the backs. Of course, as luck would have it, the batik fabric is the most popular If you could include a brand and size, that would be helpful. I mostly sew on my machine and am not knowledgeable about the various types of hand sewing needles like quilting needles vs betweens vs sharps, etc. I tried to Google the question but just got more confused. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.
