i never thought about waxing the needle!

but i have been watching the videos where their thread gets tangled/looped and shout at my computer screen that there's a solution!

i always run my thread thru a beeswax candle - no twisting/knotting. they also sell it in a little plastic container at the sewing store notions just for this purpose.

i wish the ladies making these utube videos would use it cause i cringe every time it happens to them!
