I bought these needles for cross stitch on 22 ct aida or hardanger, using 2 over 1. I do use a needle threader and it can get a bit tight with the eyes of these, but it's a lot easier than me trying to fiddle with it and do it on my own. Overall, they slide easily and I haven't destroyed too many yet -- I seem to have very caustic skin that eats needles, even gold-plated ones, but these are holding up better than most. The reason I'm giving them 4 stars is a lack of consistent quality. I'm doing a huge cross-stitch project and ordered quite a few packages of needles. Some of the needles are longer than others and I can't figure out why, but those are also a bit more substantial and don't seem as fine and easy to pull through the holes either. Some of the needles also seem a bit flimsy, especially around the eyes, and have bent even though they aren't under any strain. It's very inconsistent but worth noting. I do love working with size 28 needles though and think I'll continue with using them even on projects with larger counts.

I don't enjoy stitching with larger needles regardless of what size I'm working on. I've been super happy with this first set I got. I will be getting more. Warning though...they are pretty small. Not hard for me to thread or anything, but you do have to keep an eye out for them!

I'm working with 18 count, so this gauge is great, and they thread decently, but they're so short,I have trouble handling them. I ended up going to the store to get 24s. I do keep one 28 handy for certain things the 24 can't handle well.

I needed small needles to work on dollhouse projects. These are very nice and don't stretch out the holes.

I have never used size 28 needles before. I love them. They are the best for 18 count, they don't get stuck slide right through no problems. I thought they would be hard to thread but they aren't. I bought 2 packs to try and then ordered 10 more for my new project and the price isn't bad either.

This is my favorite size and I love when I find them on sale at 123 Stitch. However, I have noticed that DMC has shortened the length of the needles without lowering the price. That seems to the be the way of the world - as in a half gallon of ice cream is now 3 quarts. I'm just saying .........
