To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Decided to add my two cents and support what other people have commented on about the needles snapping or breaking because I had a similar experience with the pack I recently purchased. As far as I can tell mine do not have any signs of rust but the needles seem to be made of low quality metal. I was surprised when one of these needles snapped in half only minutes after I began to sew! Like many reviewers have already said, you get what you pay for, sort of.
Good price for what you get. The needles aren't way sharp but it works for what I need it for. I was disappointed at the way they are packaged. The black holder that holds all the needles is actually just paper with holes poked through to hold the needles. The little package was snaked up when I received it and most of the needles were out of the package and all over the box. I would have given 5 stars if the package wasn't so poorly handled.
Wanted made in the USA sewing needles; couldn't find. So went with these. Two problems with them, one is that found them within a week for many dollars cheaper (couldn't return as return shipping cost more than item), second is when I opened the package I have found at least one so poorly constructed that it's un- useable. (eye of the needle was smooshed) Would pay for better quality if I could find it.
Well this is the third needle that has broken. The other 2 snapped in half you can see this one is bent but didn’t snap in half the hole part where you put the thread snapped off. They are pretty cheap and theres plenty more but still annoying
