Looks neat..I went ahead and ordered it! Sometimes I do have trouble with thick threads in my crazy quilting. I will let you know how it works...worth a try!

ive always been afraid of hand quilting partly because i have arthritus in my hands probably due to years of cross stitch and embroidery and working with my hands my stitches are very uneven but ive always wanted to learn and it seems like this tool might make it easier on me. im ordering 1 today.

It is funny, how necesssity is the mother of invention, but if you never needed it, it would not occur to you. I sometimes use a little, 1 " circle of rubber to pull, but I rarely need it. I found the rubber 'puller' at an embroidery shop that specialized in smocking.

That just seems too complicated when you can get the same results and faster with the little round rubber disc to grab the need or I also use rubber finger cots, it is much quicker.

Hedgehog Needle-Puller
This is the full name and it really looks handy right there on your hand I would buy it, becuse my fingers get sore from the pulling the needle

Gonna get me one! I just tied a quilt and had to use needle nose pliers - any time I have to grip the needle really tight even with rubber grippers, it make my fingers sore. The 'puller' would give me leverage plus save my finger tips.
