How to Cut Thread on an Airplane

submitted by Fred Shultz
from Threads #103

Time spent traveling on airplanes is ideal for us dedicated/addicted needle artists, especially with early arrivals and two-hour waits. But you can't take scissors through security checkpoints or onboard planes these days. Here's a fine substitute for scissors that doesn't cause problems: it's the tiny blade on your dental floss container.

It cuts threads smoothly and evenly, including the thick embroidery flosses I use for my personal addiction, sashiko handwork. Dental floss containers come in all sizes and shapes, so it's easy to find one to fit perfectly in your project bag. And you don't need to empty the floss container to use it as a thread cutter.

When I try to save a 2010 file and I open it again, it says " Microsoft Office 2010 Sale doesn't match." And then it asks me for a product key. What am I supposed to do? Or how do I save a Microsoft Office 2010 file into an ONLY 2010 format? Am I supposed to click something? HELP! I really need it. :|
