I do not throw away old needles until they are truely OLD, bent or other issues. I also do not change needles with every project. I have found that if I " sharpen" my needle every once in a while they last MUCH longer.. I use the little " garnet grit" bag that comeso n the " tomato" pin cushion. I just trun the needle thru few times and TADA!!! it sails thru the fabric like new.
I'd be happy to take all those old needles off everyones hands that change needles for every new project!
Money is just too tight for me to do that.....

* I start a new PT job on monday... hope I can hold up to it...*
