Help For Dragging Needles

I did not take the pictures, and I do not know who did the needles, but the soaps say wiseGEEK on the picture.. I Googled to get them. However, the hack is mine.


Have you ever had the needle to start pulling and dragging on you when you are sewing?  I have the answer on how to make it stop.  All you need is a bar of soap.  You simply stick the needle in the soap a few times, and the soap acts like a wax and makes the needle glide in and out of the material.

For those Mothers that still use the cloth baby diapers, this trick works on diaper pins also.
