    I never used this but found some on sale. Can't believe how much easier it is to thread a needle for hand quilting. The thread has more body and doesn't seperate when threading your needle. How diid I do without it all this time. No one ever told me I needed it but I would't be without it again.

    I use it, too, when I hand sew the binding down. I've also used it on hand embroidery floss. Wonderful stuff!!

    I use the same piece I've had for over 20 years. Cut it in 4 and have a piece in different spots and use it whenever I'm threading a needle. Love the stuff.

    I have always used it and use to include it in every secret pal pkg. However, I stopped because no one knew what to do with it. I had about two dozen little hearts in a ribbon loop. Now I am down to five.

    Wonderful stuff... I have Momma's from who-knows-how-many-years ago... It has hardened and is unusable, but still has all the lines where she pulled the thread through... I often forget to use it (my new stuff...) thanks for the reminder!!

    I use it especially for handquilting, redwork, other embroidery, and when I'm doing anything with a regular 100% cotton thread.
