Inside: 6 fabulous needle threaders to make your life easier!
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And again, and again and again!
If you’re like me, and getting a little wiser, (older) it gets harder and harder to see the eye of a needle! Luckily for us, there are people that are there to help us! They love to invent new, cool ways to thread a needle! Here are some great needle threaders to help you get that pesky needle threaded.
My absolute favorite is the Clover Desk Needle Threader. This works by putting the needle in the hole, the thread over a guide and clicking a button. I had to demonstrate this once for my boss, and I thought, “Sure, that’s not going to work at all!” Of course, I was wrong, and immediately had to have one for myself! They work great, even on small-eyed straw needles. I wore one out, and have one at home and one in my appliqué bag. They come in pretty colors now, which they didn’t in the beginning.
Here’s another one, the Sewline Sure Guide Needle Threader, that also works with a click, and it also comes with some needles!
Here is one that works very simply: There is a wire loop that goes through the eye of the needle. You put your thread in the loop and push it through the eye. The nice addition on this one from Dritz is an LED light to help you see.
Then there’s this little beauty, the Le Needle Bird Needle Threader. It is adorable, very simple, using a small hook, and very affordable!
This DMC threader is a 3-in-1 that has a metal threading portion as well as 2 hooks for thicker threads.
Last is the simplest solution, the plain metal threading loop, in this Clover metal threader.
So, whether you want something inexpensive, or something a little more, there are great solutions out there for your threading needs! I have included a link to purchase most of the threaders, or you can look for them at your local quilt shop!
And no more “agains” to threading needles!
