Have you darlings seen this? Someone at work was telling me about it and graciously sent me the link. I don't do much hand sewing as we don't get along, but for those who do quick sewing jobs (buttons, hems, etc.) or (GASP!!) hand quilting, this might be a nifty little gadget (especially if you're like my mom who's been known to say "If someone threads the needle for me...").
