These needles are fantastic for threading all loose ends into your quilts. I first saw them on Leah Day’s site. No more hard work threading needles, these have a slit in the top of the eye so you just have to pull the thread over the slit, needle threaded. This allows you to weave even the smallest thread into the quilt. I bought some for myself and a friend who also says that they are great. I purchased ours on line from Pauline’s Quilters World. Fantastic tool to have in our quilting kit.
