Re: Book Giveaway: "1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips"

Whenever threading a needle, in addition to putting a little spit on the end of the thread, I was told to put a dab on the eye of the needle itself. Wow! What a difference!

Would it still have enough bias to allow reaching? Just curious...love this topic!
