Spiral Eye Needles and a Give Away

Most of you know I like to play with new sewing “toys” …well, I fell in LOVE with Spiral Eye needles after the first try!

Ahhh, did that photo get your attention? They got my attention when they scrolled past on Facebook a few weeks ago. I ran over and purchased a set. These wonderful side loading needles were created by inventor, Pam Turner of PST Innovations, LLC (
Why I liked these better than the “split eye” needles available at fabric stores? For starters they easily loaded from the side and DIDN’T shred my rayon threads like the split eye needle often does (so annoying). The thread DIDN’T fall back out of the eye while being pulled through the thickness of a quilt top like the split eye needle often does (again so annoying). They made hiding thread tails a breeze while using my longarm (heavenly).

    I would love to win. I have trouble with the thread shredding with the top loading needles also. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Very interesting needles. They look like they are great quality, but I also see a lot of benefits of this design.

    The answer to my old eyes prayer.

    Oh wow they look great and I could really use some so that I finally get to burying my thread tails instead of just making the knots.

    These look like they would solve a few of my choice words while trying to thread needles.

    Thank you so much for introducing us to these little sanity savers! Having had the thread fall out of a top loading needle repeatedly yesterday, I found myself wishing for one of these.
