    Titanium needles

    I am interested in purchasing Organ (Superior) titanium topstitch needles in quantity online at a good price. I know there are places to do so but would appreciate hearing from anyone who has done so.
    Thanks.

    I buy the needles from Superior. Great customer service and good sale prices too. I think shipping is still $3 or it was the last time I ordered. The titanium needles last so much longer then the regular needles they pay for themselves.The link for allbrands seems to be needle sizes for heavy weight thread. I have no idea what size 12 14 and 16 is, compared to the needles sizes I know. Stick with Superior and get exactly what you want with no guess work.

    Thanks for the needle size info. I was interested but too lazy to Google. I'll never remember it though. LOL

    I just bought my first 100 from Discount Embroidery. Very reasonable and they were here before I could think about it. I am very pleased with them.

    I have bought my Organ brand Titanium needs from Bailey who makes the home quilting machines. I bought 100 of them and think they will last me these rest of my life. I use them for quilting and I do not change needles with every quilt. I probably do 10 or 12 quilts with one needle. Unless I have some indication that I need to change the needle, I keep on quilting with the same one, over and over again.

    I use the other needles for my piecing - the kind that I just happen to have stock-piled a few years ago.
    I don't seem to have issues with needles or thread, so I just keep stitching merrily along.

    You can do a search on which places sell them, then get them wherever you get the best buy.

    If you want them for about 6 cents a piece you need to join Yahoo!s Needlecoop... They have a buy that is going to end the end of March. I pay with PayPal and with the fees and shipping it comes to a little less than 66 bucks. I have bought through them twice and have not had a problems. Tell them Coyote suggested you join if there is a space for it when you fill out the form. I love mine and they last and last....
