What can I do to prevent rusting of pins or needles?

Easy Needling

To make your pins and needles smoother and drag-free, stick them in a plain bar of soap when they are not in use. The soap will prevent rust and the needles will glide through even multiple layers of fabric and batting. Keep the paper wrapper intact to catch the inevitable soap chips that come from repeated use of the bar of soap.
