But it’s tomato flavor, not spaghetti flavor. That seems fine!

If anyone is still looking at this, what store can I walk into and get sewing needles easily? Walmart is out because I will spend 30 minutes wandering the aisles feeling increasingly frantic as I fail to find such a tiny object in such a large store. Needles in a haystack, if you will.

@RiffRandell Almost any grocery store, for starters. For some reason often found next to the charcoal/ lighter fluid. Drug stores, too- most of those travel sewing kits have an adequate selection of needles for basic purposes, and most drug stores also have basic needles outside of those kits. JoAnne Fabrics/ Michaels if you need extra choices. In that case I recommend asking the first staff person you see where the needles are so you don’t accidentally wind up in some aisle that inspires you to take up decoupage or something.

Needles are usually pretty easy to find in Walmart- they’ll be near the fabric section, which is usually staffed by someone with a passing knowledge of sewing who would be able to point you to the needles you need. The fabric is usually in the back near the shoes.

@RiffRandell Besides sewing type stores (Jo Ann fabrics…), I have seen needles at Safeway. And I suspect drug stores.
