Embroidery Needles

The Embroidery needle or 'E' Needle has an elongated eye. The eye is 1.5 times the length of the eye of the standard Universal Needle but not as big as the double length eye of the Topstitch needle. The elongated eye makes it easier to thread thicker threads and helps reduce 'thread stripping'. 

Embroidery Needles have a sharp point for most general sewing applications from dress making to machine embroidery.
