A Stitch in Time . . .
I sell oar leather kits retail and online. I have been including these harness needles in the kits because they are ideal for tight, precise stitching. I use them myself for custom leathering and my do-it-yourself customers are uniformly pleased with them.

Needles
Maine thread is the only place I can find #1 Osborne Harness Needles. I am only a few miles from a Tandy Leather store but their needles break to often. These don't. I may wear one out and the eye break on it but I sure get my moneys worth.
I launched my small business Dark Water Classic in August 2015. Every single item is hand stitched using the saddle stitch technique and I have been using the same needles since I started working with leather. Decent needles about 2inches long from Michaels craft store. I decided I wanted to find a needle with a little more length and smaller eyelet as I tend snap needles frequently. I ordered these 517 Harness Needles, size 0, and sweet lord its a night and day difference. I am never using any other needle but these from this point on. the extra length, just over 2.25" makes pulling through the leather so much easier and puts less strain on my fingers and hands from fighting a tiny needle through some thick leather along with thick waxed thread. Maine Thread Co's customer service was great also when I called to ask about the needles, they put me on hold so they could run and grab a pack and inspect it and talk to me about the thickness and overall length so I was 100% confident on what I wanted. Got 25 needles in the mail and I couldn't be happier. Thanks gents!

I am so glad I ordered from this company, just got it the other day and have been busy using their fabulous products since. They offer such a wide range of good quality products. I ordered an assortment of coloured .20 waxed polycords, the coffee brown non-waxed cord, the small awl, and harness needles. The threads go through veg tan leather beautifully, and look gorgeous, definitely enhancing my leather products. The needles are amazing, so strong, and so superior to anything else I've used. Even better, the needle eye fits the thread nice and snuggly, making these needles a joy to use when hand sewing. The awl works great, and is a bargain for the price. I'm using the non-waxed cord for simple adjustable necklace cords to hold soapstone pendants I shape and mount, so it has to be strong, not fray even when the cord is adjusted, and look classy--this cord does all of these things, the best I've used for this purpose. Have to mention too that Maine Thread Company's customer service was awesome, very friendly and professional, so helpful. I'm from Canada, and even with the exchange rate this was so worth it!

I received my order from Maine Thread Co. the other day and have been busy using their products ever since. I am so happy with everything I ordered. I got an assortment of .20 waxed polycords, harness needles, an awl and the 1.0 coffee brown non-waxed polycord. The waxed polycords are beautifully vibrant, move well through the veg tan leather I work with, and definitely enhance my products. The harness needles are so strong, so superior to any needle I've used, no bending or breaking even when I reef on the waxed polycord. In addition, the needles are easy to thread and yet fit the waxed cord nice and snug, making hand sewing more of a joy. The awl is great, and a bargain for the price. I bought the non-waxed polycord to use for adjustable necklace cords, to hold soapstone pendants I shape. This cord is the best I've used for necklaces--doesn't fray even when the cord is adjusted multiple times, is strong but also pliable and looks classy, couldn't ask for better. I should mention the Maine Thread Co.'s customer service was awesome from start to finish, very helpful, friendly and professional. I'm from Canada, and even with the exchange and shipping it was so worth it to order from Maine Thread Company, I'll definitely be back!
