    There is a Spiral Needle, it is different from some of the others. More expensive, but many say it is well worth it :D:D:D

    Is it the one that looks like an "H". It might be the quick thread needle. Or what Amma said too :)

    If you are talking about the "self-threading" needles where you just slide the thread over the end of the eye and it goes right into the eye you can get them at JoAnn's or most fabric stores. They are called self threading needles. They work really well especially if you can't see the eye of the needle well enough to thread them. They work really great for hiding your ends to where you don't have alot of thread sticking out.

    Good luck,

    I sprung for the spiral eye and they are well worth it. I had bought the ones from JoAnne before and I found the spiral eye a superior product. Then again it should be as it is significantly more expensive.

    Thanks for the site! I have been wanting to get these because I often poke holes in my thumb with the open end kind! Also the thread will sometimes pull out of the end.
