Self-Threading Needles
« on: July 04, 2015, 06:46:09 AM »
2 of Self Threading Needles - Start Sewing in One Second! Set of 48
Sold by: PLCEO US
$7.67


I know it's popular to use those short needles to hand stitch with...but I use these and have for years. Recently, it's been hard to find them but I searched Amazon and found them.
There are 4 packs to an order = 48 needles.
There are thin, flexible and if you have vision issues or just a hard time threading, these are great.

Got them in two days too....
Pleceo US is out of Lexington, Ky

Never thought of that use but thinking of how the threads after quilting could be short, this is a good way to grab the thread and bury it....love learning uses for them
Hopefully someone who does this too will see this idea you two posted....TY

Am I the only one who has had trouble with these types becoming unthreaded?  Maybe I'm using the wrong brand?

Not at all. Mine used to pop off once in a while and then the more I used them I learned how to hold them when pulling them thru.
Every once in a while I get one that breaks the thread with too sharp a point on the part you thread and switch it out...

Sometimes it is nice that the thread will off the needle easily if there is a tangle to get out. Better than having to manuever the needle that won't let it go. :)

I bought some singer ones. They seemed blunt and were rough pulling through the fabric. The thread also seemed to pop out really easy. Maybe I should try these.

I don't have much success with these needles - the ones with the slot in the top, as they keep coming unthreaded.  I really like the Spiral Needle.   The opening is on the side.  However, there are two (I understand).  One is made in the USA and the other is overseas.  They are a bit larger than regulr hand sewing needles, but work great.  Not inexpensive but well worth the $.  I use them for burying ends on machine quilting.

I do the same thing.  When my thread is too short on my needle to pull through, I put a self threader in my project, snap the thread in and pull it through.   Great invention!

I started using these needles because I can load the thread without seeing the hole ..My vision is so bad with those tiny things. Then I stuck to it.
I dread it when my sewing machines need to be threaded and love the self threading ones.

I'll still have to check out the ones Holice mentioned in case someone asks me....TY

IMO,personal choice is the one with the slot on the end/top of the needle.
I originally purchased the self-threading Spiral Needles for burying my threads when I'm machine quilting (the ones with the slot on the side - as referenced by Holice).  They are the ones made in the USA and as Holice also mentioned - are quite expensive.
I eventually became very unhappy with the "Spirals". While the thread doesn't come unthreaded from the side-slot, what became MOST irritating for me is the "side" slot very often becomes caught/snagged in the batting, (in the middle of the quilt sandwich) and is a real *&#!!! to get loose.
This created so much frustration using the Spirals, I've switched to the self-threading with the slot on the needle end/top and I don't have the snagging problem any more.
Now I'll just use the self threading for general sewing where the likely hood of the side slot becoming caught up is unlikely but if so, a lot easier to free is I'm not trying to un-snag from within an area I have no ability to see.
