Jimmy Beans may be your solution.
Have a broken needle that you didn't order from us? Not a problem! We'll still take back damaged needles, even if you didn't purchase them from us (of course, as long as we carry needles from that company). We do ask for $1 in shipping charges, in order to send you a new pair.
Hmmm. I think for the price of sending them in plus a dollar for handling, as reasonable at it is, I'd just look at Handsome Fibers, watch for a sale day (they may do a Labor Day sale) or order enough to get a discount or at least free shipping and buy a new needle. It's too bad about the shop you bought from going out of business.
