Sailmaking needle, ca. 1990

Contributed by an individual through Maine Historical Society

Sailmaking needles are made in various sizes.

The size of the needle required for each different job is determined by the weight of the material being sewn and the weight of the thread being used.

The front half of the needle is triangular and is carefully polished to prevent cutting the fabric threads.
