So what type of needle should you use? There are a lot of different types out there, each with its own purpose in mind. One package of needles--like the one I have--has sharps, betweens, darners, embroidery, tapestry, and chenille.
Yikes! That is a lot to choose from! But for typical hand sewing, just go for the ones called sharps. They have small eyes and slim bodies, allowing you to easily insert the needle into the fabric without making a noticeable hole.
