Love, love, love this size needle for use with all my 11/0 seed bead projects. Flexible and yet sturdy and actually easy to thread.

I love these needles because the eye is bigger than on the previous needles I was using. I am able to thread this needle first time almost every time. I find they have the quality I have been looking for. Thanks.

I love these BIG eye needles!
For older folks like me with failing eyesight, these needles are AWESOME! I used to spend more time threading my needle, than I did beading. Now it's a snap with these big eye needles and I can get on to the good stuff - BEADING!

Use a red or black marker to colour the end of the thread, then hold the coloured end between your thumb & finger & put the needle on the thread using your dominant hand. Works great!
It is almost impossible to put the thread into the needle like you would do with a big eye needle.

Long Lived - No!
I do not recommend these needles to anyone that does a fair amount of needle bead work. I have found them to bend and break easily. I went through 3 of them in one pendant project. I have since upgraded to the Tulip needle brand and am extremely satisfied.

English beading needles
I never was able to use them because I couldn't get the thread through the needle.
