I scored big at my local quilt shop Saturday when I found this needle pack. Called Big Stitch, Pepper Cory designed these especially for quilters to create utility stitches. Utility stitches are a longer length than conventional stitches and use thicker threads so they can be easily seen on the surface.
An Amazon reviewer said they are so sharp, you don’t need a thimble to go through a quilt sandwich (top, batting, and backing). Impressive. I had no idea these existed, so I want to get the word out. To celebrate this incredible find, I’m giving away a Big Stitch needle pack to a lucky Craft Gossip reader.
