Roxanne Needles are handmade in England to precise specifications. Each needle is painstakingly shaped to a gentle taper, highly polished and then carefully nickel plated to give the discerning hand quilter ultimate control over the quilting stitch. These applique needles are designed to be stronger and thinner with an evenly tapered point. It makes applique feel like passing a hot knife through butter. There is no size attached to this needle as it is unique unto itself and does not follow the traditional rules.
