Throughout the summer last year I was reading alot about the hand quilting method of the Thimble lady. Her method is supposed to be painless. Well because I just have to try every needle out there and thimble of course, I spotted her needles on my trip to the Suwanee Valley quilt shop in Trenton. I have tried many needles and in my personal opinion I like Rosanne's the best. I purchased a pack of 50 in the summer and I still have about 40 left. They rarely break. If anyone is interested in owning the Thimblelady needles , I still have 25 of them ( there are 26 in a pack)and I paid $5.50 for them if anyone wants to buy them.
