Whenever I change threads on my sewing machine, serger, or coverstitch, I have trouble pulling out only a bit of thread. So this morning, when changing out thread on both the serger and coverstitch, I decided to pull out a length I could use for basting or tacking. I immediately threaded hand needles and ran the thread through beeswax ( or use Thread Heaven), then put the needles into a pincushion I will use for just this purpose. Not wasting thread, and I'll now have pre-threaded needles when I'm on a roll!
