I have received several emails asking me about the Bohin Needles so I thought I would go ahead and add the information here as well. I personally love them and was introduced to the needles a few years ago. They are wonderful - they are smooth and just glide through the linen. I have inadvertently picked up other needles in my stash - I can tell the difference immediately and have to find my Bohin's. I have learned to keep a package of them in all of my project boxes. Never thought I would fall in love with a needle - just thought, a needle is a needle but found that is not truly the case.
