    It seems that I'm bending every single needle I use. One afternoon of quilting and its time for a new one. I don't remember what brand these are but I got them at Michaels. Is there a brand that won't bend?

    If it is happening while you are quilting, you may need a bigger needle.

    I bend needles all the time. Doesn't matter what type of needle or what brand, after 3-6 hours of using a needle I have to throw it away and get a new one out. Trust me, if you are like me and continually bend needles, it's best to just stock up and trade them out as needed. :wink:

    Yep, I bend my hand quilting needles all the time. Try to keep using them until they break :lol: :lol: -- Which reminds me that I need to make a visit to the LQS to see if I can find some more that I like :D

    If the needles aren't flexible enough to bend, they will snap...trust me.
