Really gross but useful tip from an old sewing relative, lube your needle oil from your scalp (I use vaseline) Just rub a teeny bit between your fingers & then slide it over your needle. it is so much easier to pull through stacks of korked ribbon.

For my hot gule gun I place it on a plastic piece so it just comes right off as well....
I always masking tape (the blue low tack tape) the woodburner cord to my table too!! And keep it in my hubby's coffee mug that he got from work That bugger took one bite out of my polyester slipper and will not get away from me ever again!
