Needles for tails

    I sew in tails when I am through making something, of course. I sometimes have to sew in short tails. That can be a trick in itself. To help make it easier I decided to look for a better needle. I found side loading "easy thread" needles. They do work well, and I can thread one in a second without struggle.
    After I found the needles, I needed a box to keep them in. I tried the little tin that has a sliding top, but it is not easy to choose a needle and then reach in and pick it up. The little magnet inside is not all that big. I remembered seeing a box at Wal-Mart the other day and thinking I would have no use for it. Now I find the use. I searched around and found out JoAnn Fabric is having a sale on that box, for $4.99 instead of $7.99. Almost half off. I bought a couple. Well, 4 of them. It has a magnetic sheet on the bottom of the box to hold needles.

The box is large and easy for me to sort, select and pick up the needle I need. I'm glad I found them.

  1. I like to use easy thread needles too. I haven't got such a neat box though, I just put them back into the original packet they came in.
