As a top-choice resource for sailmakers, Sailrite is proud to offer a selection of hand-sewing sailmakers’ needles that are tough enough to penetrate tough sailcloth. We recommend choosing sailmaking needles by W. Smith & Son, as these needles are forged in England from cast steel with reduced edges for easier passing through heavy fabric assemblies. We stock W. Smith & Son needles in various options to add to your sailmaking sewing kit. Sailmaking needles feature a triangular point that extends farther up the needle shaft to the eye to reduce chafe problems when a long length of twine is repeatedly pulled through.
You’ll also find hand sewing needle kits that contain a variety of sizes in a single package to accommodate various jobs. If you prefer, you may also stock up on one of our affordable two-packs of hand sewing needles in sizes ranging from #8 to #17. You’ll want to use larger needles for sewing through many layers of fabric and smaller needles for jobs such as seam work. Sailrite also offers specialty curved hand sewing needles, which are great for upholstery work in applications such as slip stitching cushions, box edges and seat work.
