John James extra long straight mattress needles were originally designed to be used in the manufacture of bed mattresses hence the name. However this needle is really useful when repairing and restoring upholstery such as sofas, chairs, headboards and ottomans.

This needle is designed to sew through really heavy upholstery fabrics. The extra long length makes sewing buttons on to sofa cushions and indeed mattresses so much easier. The eye of the needle is long which makes it easy to thread, especially if you are using twine, upholstery thread, waxed thread or button thread.

Straight Mattress needles are also used in upholstery tufting and are sometimes known as Tufting needles.
