My new notion - these have been around for awhile now, but I just got mine yesterday. You can thread 10 needles and put them into the spindle so that as you hand sew or quilt you have 10 needles ready to go. This is great for when I English paper piece, as I use a needle with a small eye and since my cataract surgery I am having trouble seeing to thread needles. Using my clover needle threaded, I can get 10 needles threaded and loaded in the spindle in the amount of time it would have taken me to thread 2 or 3 needles without these tools. It's great when sewing in the car as well to have threaded needles at hand. Cost was $8 at a local quilt shop.
Thanks for stopping by,
