Thanks so much for the hint about sewing machine needles and the delightful needle cushion! I'll be sure to use your ideas.

Thank you! This is a great tip using labels and the pin cushion for a "needle cushion"!

Love your series. I've been using the same labels with needle information for quite a while. I also note the "date" I put the needle in the machine. That way, when I've not spent any significant time to be measured, I can reference the "date" & think about the amount of time I've actually used the needle.

Your comment about changing the needle every 8 hours got me to wondering about the new titanium needles. They brag about Being good for 5 times as long as a conventional needle. What are your thoughts on them?

Thank you Sharon. I do use the sticker now but hadn't figured out how to resolve that somewhat used needle so will try that solution. All of your videos are great!!

I keep my needles in their packet, and always start with the needle on the left. I return it to the packet, facing the opposite direction if possible. After one is worn I also have a space between the old and new needles. The packet gets tucked into a spot next to my machine. And an organizing tip-I use 3M Command hooks to hang my notions, so all my needle choices are within easy reach on the outside of a closet door right behind my swivel chair.

Wonderful idea! I have tons of those stickers, I use them for lots of things but never thought to use them for my needles. Perfect idea. Thank you
