    YES! i like the milner needles and have used lots of John James needles- i pretty much use John James & Roxanne needles most of the time. I prefer milner's because i like a longer needle- betweens are really tiny-
    milner's are a longer - thin shaft straight needle.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Thanks for letting me know. I think that is the needle I want to try. Like the idea of a longer needle.

    Love John James and Roxanne needles, and I find I prefer the straw needles, size 10 or 11. Not sure how they compare to milliner needles, but they are longer than sharps or quilting needles. I have large hands and just find them easier to manage.

    love these needles--great for beading too as they dont bend as easily
