Have you noticed how the reclosable packs that hand sewing needles come in do not stay closed? I have tried taping them closed and putting them in small zip lock bags. The results were that the tape only worked for a short time and I soon had small bags of loose needles. I needed something that would really contain them, could be labeled, and would travel well.
I now store my needles in empty medicine bottles. The bottles can be labeled, the tops stay on, and my needles have a home of their own!
If you have a cool idea for keeping up with your needles I would love to hear it!
