    If you want to keep your pins and needles sharp and close by when you sew, put a bar of soap next to your machine, and stick your pins in it, for it will keep them sharp. I have mine right next to my machine. I have the same pins for 10 years now. Good as new.

    Wow, I like that tip. It would smell fresh around my sewing area as well.
    Thank you kindly!

    Thank you for the tip. I used to do that years ago but had forgotten it. I will start that again.

    Never heard this before, but it doesn't hurt to try it out plus the pins will smell clean!
    Thanks for the tip.
