These are the smoothest needles I have ever used and I have been sewing all my life. These are the sharpest too. They work well with needle threaders they do bend but that is a good thing the way they do it that is. When they are "tired" and done sewing the points will just pop off and then the needle is very dull!! But it sews a long time before this happens and it just tells me when it is time for a new needle. The price is great when you compare them to other needles you will never regret getting them they are addictive!

I have been using the needles for years when I found them in a small shop in Newnan, GA. Love the idea of having different size needles for different weaves of fabric.

To me these needles are the best I have ever used.For both applique and quilting they handle both jobs with ease and just glide through the fabric. Awesome!

I have used many different needles over the years I have been sewing--these Thimblelady needles are the best--tgey have sharp point and are thin-they just slide with ease through the fabric.
I can't waint to get some more for other projects.

These needles are perfect. They are available in different diameters to suit your fabric and best of all for me they are the perfect length. I do hand piecing, needleturn applique and hand quilting and they fit all the criteria I require.

Hi, Liuxin, Please don't ever run out of needles, I just love them to bits.

As a professional quilter, it's been a frustrating struggle to find a tool that lives up to the manufacturer's claim.
I constantly rely on my Thimblelady's needles! I could not accurately and precisely stitch and applique without them. They are finely polished with a finish that is smooth as silk. I've never used one that had a "burr" in the eye, thus shredding my expensive threads and consequently, threading these needles are a breeze. The consistency of use is like slicing a hot knife through butter, they glide that easily time and time again.
I'll never use any other needle for my hand work. One question ... when are you going to sell MACHINE needles? I'll be one of the firsts to buy them.

These needles are a godsend. I just love quilting with them. I wish they where available in my local quilt store. These needles and your technique for quilting have made hand quilting one of my most pleasurable past time. Thank you, Thank you Thank you

I tried these needles after seeing Liuxin Newman demonstrate her new Quilting technique
on DIY Quilting Show with Alex Anderson. I was
very excited to hear that she had perfected a method for hand quilting that didn't involve PAIN! or using extremely short needles(betweens). I had used them for years, and was very good at hand quilting, but was not satisfied with the needles or the thimbles(which I had purchased every kind available and needles). I must say, the Thimblelady, did find a NEW AN MAGICAL WAY OF ELIMINATING THE PAIN OF QUILTING AND APPLIQUE WITH HER NEW TECHNIQUES AND NEEDLES AND THIMBLES. These are like the prior reviewer writes, the best quality needles out there, with no burr's or imperpections, very polished, long, hold numerous stitches without BREAKING! THEY ARE A GOD-SEND, TRULY! AT LEAST GIVE YOURSELF A TREAT AND TRY THEM!

these needles are simply the best find ever.
i normally need to use a thimble but since using these needles they are so sharp i no longer need my thimble.
don't ask me why but they are also easy to thread.
i do a lot of hand piecing and applique and using Liuxins needles has improved my work.

These are absolutely the best needles that I have found. I can't imagine doing hand applique without them.

So far i have only used the medium needles for applique and i am really happy with them. They are smooth, sharp and the job has never been easier even though i used vilesofix, which can often make piercing the fabric quite difficult. I look forward to quilting with them!

I have a collection of needles that range from crowbars to needles with hooks on the end. All in a tin in the back of the cupboard now that I have found Thimblelady's needles. I am an avid applique person and just love the small needles using the silk thread also available from Thimblelady at a price well below all other stores. Attend a class and try the threading technique taught by Liuxin and you will be as happy as me. Thank you Liuxin for the dedication to a craft we all love.

I was given one of your needles for my cross stitch work and have them the best needles I have used.
