The eye of the needle has a side-ways gap in it that you drag and catch your thread into. Some care is needed with a Quick Thread needle as the opening in the eye can snag on finer or more complicated fabrics.

Some things to sew with a Quick Thread needle are:

  • cottons including homespun and drills
  • calico
  • polycottons
