There is nothing more annoying than wasting ten minutes trying to thread the whipping twine into the eye of a needle. Do not soak the thread with spit according to old-fashioned (and rather inefficient) ancient method. So, save your saliva by adopting Julien Barnet’s foolproof technique that enables you to thread the needle “as easy as pie” and on the first try! Besides, Julien also shows you how to “lock” the twine to avoid losing it when whipping or stitching. A particularly practical tip to save time without getting stuck in the awful vicious circle :

In the end, I watch the Ino-Rope tutorial and see Julien Barnet. I feel better, dry my tears, blow my nose and at last manage to thread the twine. Then, I sew without losing the thread and realise that I am happy. All in all, Life is beautiful !
