Has anybody else used this? I found this nifty little needle when I first started cross stitching because I was  horrible at threading my needles... I love this! While it's not good for everything, like when I am burying the thread I'm finishing because the end is slightly fatter than normal needles, it does save me lots of time when I accidentally pull my thread out of my needle, no more licking and trimming the thread over and over....

What are your thoughts?

I have never seen or tried that needle. I can see how it could come in handy sometimes.

Nice. I've never seen this kind of needle before. What brand is it?

The brand is just that, Spiral Eye Needles. They were invented by a woman in the US and it is made in the USA as well... There is also a cheap copy of it called the one second needle, of which I read is made in China and of lower quality (no size selection, and sometimes frays/cuts threads). If you search for Spiral Eye needles it'll take you right to the site...

I've heard of these but never seen one close up (good photo!)

Worth thinking about if you have great problems threading needles. Thanks Yenilaia

Think I will have to check them out...worth it for those short threads.

Hmmm... I have found a downside to these needles... the threading end feels a little "thicker" than the regular needles, and if you don't pull it all through in one quick motion, it could get stuck in  Details Reply Post time 2013-8-12 07:27

To me, they're very good for when I worked on Dimensions stuff with their often 4~5 threads, since those are a pain to put in needles. but from now on, 2 threads or less, I stick to regular tapestry needles.
