There is an idiom that says, "It's like threading a needle hole."

It seems that the meaning is "it requires delicate movement and concentration, or it is very difficult for that",

In that sense, it's too difficult to use.

Of course, some people are not good at it, but anyone who sews can do it.

So what is a first-class sewing craftsman?

I think it is a craftsman who can "pass the needle through the needle hole".

However, this "needle hole" is not about the hole in the needle body.

Our craftsmen who sew bags sometimes untie and re-sew once sewn parts.

It can be a simple mistake, but there are many reasons, such as when the bobbin thread runs out in the middle of an important phase.

When re-sewing, there will always be a needle hole in the sewn area regardless of the material.

The holes are especially noticeable in vinyl-processed fabrics and leather products.

Therefore, when re-sewing, we use a sewing machine to sew the needle again in the exact same place.

This is a task that requires great care in adjusting the force.

The work of passing through all the needle holes at exactly the same place as the first time is quite difficult work even though it is sewn by a machine.

The force applied to the dough changes from time to time, so you can change the way the dough is fed.

It is exactly the work of "passing the needle through the needle hole" like "passing the thread through the needle hole".

There are still times when I fail, but I feel that I am growing, which is not as difficult as it used to be.

Today was the story of "passing the needle through the needle hole".
