    Gaven's Tying Needle- Anyone know where to get these?

    The only two quilts I've ever made I tied...mostly because I like the look. I was on youtube the other day and saw this gal using this HANDY DANDY tying needle, and I emailed her, but got no response. Does anyone know if these are available for sale?

    I have never seen it but a good quilt shop on line should have it - try Nancy's notions.

    She says in the comments that her uncle designed the needle and they were trying to get it produced..that was a year ago, so not sure it can be bought.

    Did you find this needle yet? I have one and it came in a package of heavy duty upholstery type needles. I don't know if Joann's has them but you should be able to get one at an upholstery shop. PM me if you can't find one and I will check and see if I have an extra.

    I use a large curved"Tapered" Needle. I got this needle form the Veterinarian's office. At the time I was working in my husbands Vet practice. It makes a Dandy needle for tying quilts.

    I just tied my first quilt and I got curved needles at Joann's or Hancock Fabrics. They are from Dritz quilting and they are called "Curved Needles for Tying Quilts" I didn't see them on the Joann's site but I found a link to them on Amazon.

    I notice the needle on Youtube is different than the above picture (which looks like an ordinary curved upholstery needle that is just being called a "quilt" needle. The tieing needle in the video has more of a bend and it's closer to the tip--for slipping into the quilt and immediately back to the top----making a short stitch that is almost automatic. Have you googled for the needle by the name the girl gives it? Looks really interesting. Tho I have never tied quilts, this might be a new finish for me! Let us know if you ever find it.

    Could you take one of the larger curved needles and put a "bend" in it?
