Have any of you tried out the Spiral Eye Needles? What do you think?

I have them and love the ease of threading them as my vision is poor. Honestly, however, I have to say that the needle is not sharp and slim at the point to allow the needle to slide through the fabric easily. Also, it does come unthreaded while pulling it through the fabric. It's a great needle for burying threads, but not a good sewing needle. I'm a bit disappointed, but still use them due to the ease of threading them.

I use them for burying threads and not hand sewing as I believe they a bit large. I have not found them to cut thread. If this is the case, then contact the company. I had one that was not right and they replaced it.

Contact the company about your spiral needle cutting thread. I had one that was not right and they replaced it.

Please notify the company - from what I've heard, they want to make things right.

I agree with QuiltnNan - I use it to bury threads. I love it for that but do not want to do a lot of hand sewing with it.

I searched high and low for them a few weeks ago and could not find the spiral eye. The only "cheater" needle I could find was the one with the slit at the top that you "pop" the thread through. I also picked up a curved needle. Both are for basting, I'll try them both soon and see which I like better.
