A Note About Needles:
There are two needles included in this kit: a straight needle and a curved needle. The curved needle can be used to gain additional leverage when stitching thick materials, as well as to create a smoother finish when stitching inside a seam or along an edge. The curved needle is also used for corner work, as it can help you get into - and out of - tight spaces. However, part of it is a preference as some users prefer the curved needle to the straight needle for all their sewing with the Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl. It is recommended by the manufacturer to try both and see what feels best to you.
A #4 Straight Needle is also available, which is used with Fine Waxed Polyester Thread for fine sewing (both sold separately), or with sewing machine thread as shown in the video below.
