Default Re: Share a tip! (a feel good thread!) :)

Wow, took me half the night to read this whole thread.

My 2 cents.

All Purpose Sewers Aid made by Prym-Dritz. It's a lubricant you can put on scissors, needles or thread. I use it on the whole spool when sewing thick fabrics , the thread just glides without drag or catches, it's a liquid and you just need to drizzle a small line across the spool, end to end. The half oz bottle lasts forever

When using your wood burner use a pair of pliers to loosen the tip before it cools or changing the tip may be impossible as the metal will eventually bond with itself, just ask your husband about those pesky lug nuts. Do this each time you are finished using it. Also know that wood burners can accommodate a wide variety of tips and one may work better for you than another for cutting ribbon. Clean your tip with steel wool to prevent drag and snag.

Crystal light cans are semi transparent are a good organizer for buttons or beads and hair elastics
