Spiral Eye Machine Needles are So Easy to Thread!

The Spiral Eye Machine needle is the ONLY side threading needle with a slot and channel shaped like a check mark. This means it threads easily and stays threaded no matter how fast you sew. Watch the video to see how easy it is!

I make them from a SCHMETZ brand size 80/12 Universal needle.

But, do not confuse the Spiral Eye side threading machine needle with the SCHMETZ brand quick threading needle, sometimes called a handicap needle. That has a slot that goes horizontally into the eye at the mid point of the eye. It can come unthreaded when you sew fast. SCHMETZ knows I am altering the eye of their needle. They want me to prove there is a market for my design as it costs more to make than the one they make.

All side threading hand sewing needles.
