    I showed the video from the other day, of the girl using a needle bent like this, to my DH. Yesterday we went to Hobby Lobby just to check it out. He found this and bent it with his pliers. Now I just need to make another quilt that needs tying! :-D

    I used a large curved needle for tying quilts. I think it is called an Upholstery needle. Works great!!

    Me too! I have no idea where or when or why I acquired an upholstery needle, but it works great for tying.

    They used to make an "assorted" package of needles that included a curved needles in a couple of different sizes. Of course, that was probably about 30+ years ago! LOL!!!

    I contacted the woman in the video and she replied. She is sending me info how to get the needle she is using in the video.
