When you know how many operations it takes to make a quality sewing needle, you can appreciate the lovely quality of these needles made in France. No less than eleven stages of production are necessary: dressing, which involves heating the steel wire to straighten it; cutting, followed by another heat treatment; grinding to make the point; cleaning; stamping to give it a first form; piercing the eye; different processes of filing to obtain the final form; tempering and polishing. All that without counting the packaging. These needles are the perfect go to for all sewing kits.
