I love to hand quilt, but I hate pulling the needle out. So one day I glanced at my jewelry making tools,and said, hey! I know what I can use to make this easier, and it has. My round needle nose pliers. Now I can load 8-9 stitches and not worry about trying to pull it out. It has made my quilting faster and easier. But I see I need to add more tape to the nose's to not damage to needle.
