Replacement Needles for Amanda Jane, READ, Stanley, Dr Joe's, Pullen, Newell and Durand Pleaters.

*** Stanley, Mary's, Dr Joe's, and Durand are currently unavailable, hopefully I will have some soon****

Pleater Needles are BRAND SPECIFIC. It is very important to buy the needles that match the brand of pleater you own. And in the case of the Read, be sure to know how many rows that your pleater has. Read 16 row pleater needles will not work on a 24 row Read Pleater and vice versa. Read 24 row pleaters made before 1985 have different size needles than the current 24 row Read. Needles for that pleater are no longer available.

Some companies which made pleaters have gone out of business and their needles are no longer available. to fill that need Ellen McCarn makes a general purpose 16 and 24 row needle which is very good to use for pleaters for which brand specific needles are no longer available like Durand, Newell, Pullen and Dr Joe's.

Amanda Jane needles fit all 3 sizes of Amanda Jane pleaters.

NOTE: I will not except exchanges or returns for incorrectly ordered needles because once they are out of my hands I can not guarantee that they have not been used and are not bent.

I carry the following types of needles:

Amanda Jane - fits Little Amanda (16 rows), Amanda Jane (24 rows) and the Super Amanda Jane (24 rows)
Read Needles for 24/32-row pleaters ONLY
Read Needles for 16-row pleaters ONLY
General purpose needles for the Stanley Pleater. Stanley is out of business and genuine Stanley needles are not available.

Ellen McCarn 16 row English pleater needles for Read, Newell, Pullen
Ellen McCarn 24 row English pleater needles for Stanley, Mary's, Dr Joe's, Amanda Jane, and Durand

I have personally tried the 16 row needles in a Pullen pleater (see pic) and the 24 row needles in an Amanda Jane pleater and they worked very well.

Stanley needles are sold out but you can substitute Amanda Jane needles

$2.25 per needle

NOTE On Shipping Cost
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.16 for any amount of needles shipped within the United States. If you are an international customer please request a custom order so I can add the appropriate postage for your country.
