I think you will have to call ahead and ask your airline and/or airport security. I have heard that you can take a couple with you, and others ahve said, no, you can't. I think it depends on the day and the current threat level.

I usually take several needles on board with me, but have not taken "a gazillion" My travel projects are simple compared to my SQ project. However, I don't take scissors, since I don't want to lose my good scissors. I use a pendant for my on board stitiching and put my scissors in checked luggage for use when I arrive.

My theory is not to call the airline--they usually take the conservative approach of saying no. But you may have to be prepared to put your stitching in a checked bag, if security stops you.

It may also depend on where you're traveling to.
In Europe it's forbidden to bring needles on board the plane, but like Ed, I never call to ask for the same reason.
Happy Stitching

I have never had a problem either Domestic travel in Aus or International to the USA. Howver 3 months ago I was stopped by security I think it all depends on who's on duty and how they go by the book .
Dont ring to ask , take 1 and if you get caught up with smile and leave it behind.


Cheers
Trudie
