TIPS & HINTS
 
  To Ease The Threading of Nymo, Fireline, Or Monofiliment, Flatten The End With A Chain Nose Pliers Being Careful  
         Not To Pull Or Stretch the Threading Material.   
  Before Threading, Pull Fireline Through Paper Towels Several Times To Remove The Coating  This Will Not Only  
         Lighten The Thread Color, It Will Keep Fingers Clean  
  To Minimize Knots In Nymo, Thread Directly From the Spool or Bobbin Then Pull Off Needed Length and Cut  
  When Working With Glass Christmas Ornaments, Always Work Over A Soft Surface And With Clean Hands  
  When Tying Seed Beads Into A Circle, Loosely Tie The First Half Of The Knot Then Place A Second Needle Through The  
         First And Last Beads Strung.  Tie The Second Half Of The Square Or Surgeon's Knot; Tighten Thread and Remove  
         The Second Needle  
  Use An Empty Mint Box Or Seed Bead Tube For Broken Needles - When Full, And With Your Doctor, Dentist or Nurse's  
       Permission, Discard In A Sharps Container  
  To Help Remove A Knot In Your Threading Material, Place Two Needles In The Center Of The Knot Being Careful Not
