Pre-threading Needles When Quilting

When hand sewing, I am partial to quilting, I like to thread several needles to be ready when I have finished with one length of thread. To be even more organized, I prefer to use a magnet to keep the needles and threads straight so I don't have to stop what I am doing just to thread another needle. Saves me so very much time and I don't have to search for where I left off anymore.


When I have gone through all my needles, it's time to get up and move around anyway so I am pleased with this arrangement. :)

I do the same thing when embroidering. You split the threads in two threads anyway. So why not split them all and thread them.

I also thread several needles when quilting but I don't cut the threads. I simply leave the needles on the spool all lined up and when I need one I just pull the last one threaded and then cut the thread leaving the others on the spool. No more tangled threads.
