    I just saw them there, 4 small and 4 large to a package and they were $10.
    Very inexpensive compared to many other places :D:D:D

    These are self threading needles for those who aren't familiar with them :D

    I got some and I like them. It is much easier to thread a small needle now. Glenda C

    Those aren't the Spiral Eye Needles. They're just plain self-threading needles with the slot on top.

    These are the Spiral needles:

    Is there a big difference between side loading and toploading self threading needles?
    Does the thread stay in one better then the other?

    Our Walmart also has some made by Singer that are in the sewing notions isle that are only 1.97. They are also the self threading needles. I have some and they work fine.

    The real Spiral Eye needles are terrific!! The needles are made in the U.S. also. They have no burrs or rough spots either.
    The knock-off ones have been known to break thread often, and are not as good of quality. Made elsewhere also.

    I say support the gal here in the U.S., as her products are great! :)

    I think the spiral eye ones could be used to do something like sewing a binding, appliqueing, etc. The self threading needles are used just to tuck in loose threads from FMQ and machine quilting.

    These are the ones that look like the spiral eyed needles. They have the slot in the side, I don't know if they are made by the same company. :D:D:D
