How to fix Broken Felting Needle

One of a needle-felter's greates frustration is the felting needle snapping while doing your work.  I've broken a lot of felting needles already, & everytime, it just hurts me whenever I broke a needle.  And to think that needle felting materials are not available in the Philippines, just adds to the emotions since I have to go abroad or order online from another country just to get some felting needles. 

Today, I just broke my felting needle while doing a commissioned work.  I just got fed up already.  So I thought of a way what to do with the broken felting needle.

Here's a picture of my broken felting needle. Grrr... :(

I think you could use some bakeable glue to make a stronger hold of the needle, I didn't use in this tutorial since I don't have any at the moment. =D

Hope this tutorial will solve our problem =D

  1. I would try this. Needles are readily available here, but I'm cheap. Mostly I wondered about using different colors of Sculpy to identify the needles and as a better grip. So, I will try it with an unbroken needle too.

    I only have 3 needles on hand and I just broke ALL of them.

    1. Yeah... felting needles are indeed easy to break. Where do you get your felting needles from China?

    2. Various ebay sellers, it's a hit or miss on there. They've held up fine, but I only buy the basic triangle needles off of there.
