    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.

    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 all, and now it doesn't matter what bar of soap. I think I used Spring.
