    I have the top loading one and I love them. I keep it by my machine in a pincushion and each time I have to end I bring the thread from the front to the back and knot it and then bury it. It is so much easier and quicker using these needles. I have not tried the spiral needles as they were mega expensive!

    I hand quilt and sometimes I get a knot in the thread and have to cut it. Then I use the top threading needles. By the time the thread has been thru the fabric several times, it can be hard to thread thru a regular eye.

    I have the same problem with the thread breaking when trying to use the self threading needles. I gave up and try to leave a little longer ends at the stops and starts so I can use my regular needles.

    I bring the bobbin thread to the top when I start machine quilting but how do you take the thread from the front to the back?

    I had one and, for the life of me, couldn't find it when I had a hundred or so machine cut ends to bury. So, I dug out a tapestry needle, a dental floss threader and went to work. 1. Bury the needle so the eye is close to the thread ends. 2. Thread the floss threader through the eye-it goes in easily and 3. Place the big end around the cut ends and pull them through-if I feel like it I'll use a crochet hook to pull them through faster, then 4. Pull the floss threader with the cut ends-the needle is threaded and you can finish pushing it through to bury the ends. Worked great for me, but I'm still keeping an eye out for that needle. Hope it shows up some day.

    I will have to try these. It is a pain to thread needles.
