    There are some places on e-bay where you can buy a box of 100 needles.....I bought singer type to use on my kenmores 100 for 20 dollars :wink:

    Wow! Thanks! I think I'll check that out! I was sewing a rag quilt with demin and I guess my needle just wasn't big enough because they kept breaking...so I'm off to find me some needles! Thanks!

    You can buy any amount and get "wholesale" price. I've used them several times and they are a great company!!

    Hi just read your post, you can get special needles for sewing denim. Ask for them instead, because the denim is so thick it pays to get the stronger ones.

    I used the jeans needles and worked great. No more broken needles.

    You're quite welcome. I find that my trips to JoAnn's are fewer and farther between since I found this company!

    Now, sarav., how can there be nothing that you want at JoAnn's??? I get there so seldom, that when they turn me loose in there, I'm like a kid in a candy shop. Sometimes I go in there and leave without what I went for in the first place -- like needles, thread, etc. But I don't forget that huge sack of fabrics that I just HAVE to have. That's a good idea about stocking up on needles !

    GailG: Sometimes all I want is already on sale! Are you feeling relief now that I'm not an antifabriholic!!! :D EVen though I'm trying really really hard to use up my stash (ugly stuff first - ick), I always need something to set it together with, or just one last little matching piece. But JoAnn's us so good about having sales!!

    Yes, sarav, that's exactly my dilemma when using my stash. There is always something missing to "finish the picture." When i shop, I tend to choose things that are in my favorite-color spectrums. I am low on neutrals, beiges, whites, contrasts. OOOH, guess I need to go shopping.
