Bohin (France) products that I offer on my web site...

In the last 2 months, I have purchased a lot of Bohin (France) products, scissors, needles, quilting/sewing supplies. I would like to have a detailed discussion here what I offer on my web site. Bohin products are highly recommended by designers, sewing and embroidary professionals.

Bohin is known for their exceptional needles in the sewing and embroidary area. They are highly recommended by designers and instructors. Exceptional polish for smooth glide through fabric. Fine point to minimize holes. Eye polished with a unique process to minimize breaking thread. Maximum strength, minimum bending. I have added a variety of bohin needles in the past 2 months. I carry bulk bohin needles as well.

Bohin discovery and variety packs needles(mixture of variety needles, darners, bohin Sashiko needles, doll making, Milliners, curve, crewel, sharps, tapestry, chenille and so on...)This is a great place to start if you are not familar with Bohin needles. A few very unique needles I want to point out are Bohin Sashiko Bigub 00232 variety pack for Sashiko embroidary, Bohin 83150 Doll Making variety pack, great value on variety pack 05099 Milliners and sharps, and 05599 Darners and sharps.

Bohin Milliners needles sizes 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and variety packs. Milliners needles are also known as "Straw" needles. They are mainly used for bullion knots or Brazilian embroidery stitches. Milliners needles are extra long with a round eye and a sharp point. They eye of a milliners needle is no wider than the shaft, allowing for easy manipulation of bullion wraps. They are also best used for off-loom beadwork, loomed beadwork, and bead embroidery.
