My magnetic pin holder is the place I generally "toss" a used needle when switching types of needles...regular to jeans to Microtex etc. And since the identifying imprint on the needle is so tiny, it makes it difficult to identify the needle again...until now. The jeans needles comes with a blue paint type marking on them and NOW my 80/12 Universal needles have an orange dot. Voila! That Works For Me - Wednesday.
