The awesome Spiral Eye Needle removes all that needle threading hassle. Just slide the thread up the shaft and it will engage and be ready for some serious sewing work in an instant. No squinting, swearing, licking, pouting, poking, screaming. $16.00 for a set of three. Thanks Pam. More here.
The Spiral Eye Needle solves that problem. Pam has invented a new design for the eye of the needle, allowing the user to simply slide a looped thread down the needle toward the eye, and the needle basically threads itself. Even I can do it.
