    TY all you gals. Honestly, I was wondering if it would work to post here, according to my English and to stuff, if this kind of material is affordable all around the world...

    Whenever I have some new ideas, or questions, or comments, I'll post here!!! :o)

    Oh, this is scary. I think you just started something, but a big thanks for this tip. I am from the old school of using it up before throwing it away. This just adds a few more hours usage out of the needles. Thanks.

    I frequently sew using a treadle sewing machine. Some of the needles are very hard to find. This trick will extend the use of a great many needles!

    Even if the needle is a wee bit shorter, extending it down a mm will solve 90% of any problem created. Thank you for sharing!
