This needle is perfect for burying the tails of thread that happen during machine quilting. My previous self-threading needle had a sawtooth-like opening at the top of the eye. This works better.
The package comes with 12 needles in assorted sizes. The needles are sturdy, but feel nice in your hand. If you have failing eyesight but still want to sew, these needles will make you happy.
Be sure to slide the thread from the top of the eye down, into the opening on the side of the needle. If you slide the thread along the needle up from the point, the thread won't find the slot.
