  • Fabric Use: Numerous - wovens and knits. A general purpose needle for effortless threading. Formerly known as a Handicap Needle. Not for use with sensitive fabrics (i.e. silk, microfibre etc.) because the slot might create pulled threads. It should also not be used for quilting as the fibres of the batting might be pulled out. Not recommended for use with Denim as the structure of the needle eye is too weak.

    A general purpose needle with a slip-in threading slot for people who have difficulty threading needles. These needles are helpful for children, those with vision problems, or those having difficulties with fine motor coordination resulting from arthritis or other conditions. They come in sizes 80/12 and 90/14. Due to the limited types and sizes available it may be preferable to use a needle threader which is purchased separately or built into the machine to accomplish a full range of sewing techniques.

    These needles are the same as a Universal needle but have a slot into the eye which makes them much easier to thread.
    These needles are threaded from the side of the needle instead of through the eye.

    Use the Quick Threading Needle as an alternative when your sewing machine does not have a needle threader.
    Make threading far easier with the Quick Threading Needle.
    Do not use the Quick Threading Needle when working with thin, fine materials.

    Threading made easy: Sometimes it can be difficult to find the eye in the needle. The Quick Threading Needle makes this simpler. This needle has a small slot on the side of the needle eye through which the thread simply slides into the eye.

    Suitable for the following fabrics/materials: Gabardine, jeans, twill, leather (limited to fine, thin fabrics).
