Alanna is the no needle rule new or airline specific. I take my stitiching with me on all of my trips (including to Australia last year) and have never had a problem. I don't take scissors, but use a pendant cutter I got at a quilting store.

Really????? Shocked
Well, I've just found it to be a general rule on all international flights, but now that you've told me that I'm going to double check with my airline (we're flying Singapore Airlines). Who did you fly with on your trip to Australia?

It would be so great if they let me!! Razz

Alanna, check with the airline you're flying with. Exclamation We flew with ELAL to Holland and checked before all the new rules and regulations. It all depends on where you're flying to and from. Different rules for so many countries Confused . Had done a little stitching in Holland and had forgotten to take the needle out Embarassed . But by then they had checked my handluggage and they didn't say anything about it.But I didn't stitch on the 4hour flight home.
So maybe it was more luck than wisdom.

I don't understand how those little needles could be a security risk! Confused Same with knitting needles...I wonder if they ban the bamboo knitting needles. I'm going to check that one out.

Razz Now we all know what you want to do with the bamboo knitting needles: you're going to stick them under the terrorists' fingernails, right? Laughing

We flew Qantas to Australia. I stitched on a Continental flgiht to Norway in August. Maybe it is different by airline. At any rate, I will check before my next flight.

That's very strange, Ed because I have flown Qantas many times and they have NEVER allowed me to take my stitching on board. Are you sure you informed them that you were going to have these items in the cabin...? Wink

Well done, either way, at least you got away with it. Stitching

No, I did not inform anyone. However, my stitching bag goes through the security check with no questions asked. I had no problem on domestic flights in Australia as well. I do not take scissors. On board, I often get comments from flight attendants as I am stitiching. They do not seem to be concerned.

Ahhh, so often so much better to just not say anything! My trouble was always ASKING if I could do dubious things, best to just do them and let other people just get over it!
