  • John James long darners size 9

    Hi all,
    I have been searching for ages to fine some John James long darners size 9, I breifly saw a post on here a few days ago but as I'm still feeling my way around I can't seem to find it. There my favourite needles I have been making the one I have left last, those who know them will know thats not easy as they are so bendy and this size is perfect for me, if anybody knows where to get them please give me a shout.
    TIA
    Gerry

    I buy my John James needles from M&D - they come in packs of 25, though it doesn't state the makers name they are JJ.

            I still buy mine from Merrick and Day and try to wrap them up in a bulk order when I buy my Roman blind components and other items thus cutting the postage out.

            Size 7 is my standard hand sewing needle. I always have 5s and 9s here as well but they are very rarely used. Industry standard 36s Hand stitching thread through will not flow through a No 9 long darner so they hold no place in curtain making for me.

            All my hand stitching thread is 36s and the majority of my machine thread is 75s ish.

              I use coats barber nylon bonded thread and gutermann cotton and they go through the #9 perfectly
              Unfortunatly I had a bad experience with buying supplys on two occasions from M&D so I prefere not to use them unless I have to and for me my other suppliers are more cost effective.
              TIA

                  TBH I am not sure of the thread count, but I use this as the company that I used to work for used it for well over 20yrs with no problems and I am now using it on my blinds with no problems also.
                  TIA
