    Me too! Luckily I was able to stretch far enough to turn the wheel. The needle got stuck in the middle of my fingernail. Did not get blood on the quilt. Soaked my finger in a small Dixie cup filled with rubbing alcohol for 5 minutes. Had a small round hole in my nail until it grew out. Wake up call!

      Wow, I had no idea this was such a common thing. I hope it never happens to me, since I am usually alone at home sewing .

        I agree with KarenC. I never thought about how often it occurs, but it sure is a fear of mine. I am going to be very warchful of where my fingers are. Hope the pain is gone quickly.

          Yikies! Scary to hear how common this is. In terrified of doing this. Another good reason to use a stiletto I suppose. I hope your finger heals quickly.

              Good heavens! I had no idea this was so common! I am sorry for all of you who have gone through it. I was glad my needle broke as I do not think I would have had sense to turn fly wheel. I was so shocked. My finger is healing-it’ll be fine. I am going to be more careful.I don’t know what a stiletto is, but I am going to buy one!!!

                It happened to me once and I was very glad that I used a titanium coated needle... it came it without breaking and I managed not to bleed on the quilt.... but this was a experience I am not keen on making it again!
