of the needle, of course!

One of the worst things, for me, about stitcher, is threading those needles. Darning needles are OK --- the eye is pretty large. Even most tapestry needles don't phase me. But sewing needles and (the worst) beading needles! AAACK! And of course, as I get older, it gets harder., as those eyes keep getting smaller and smaller!

Here are some good tips for threading needles --- and some of them are even good for machine needles, IMO!

I agree with you! Beading needles are a real pain! Even with a lighted magnifer they are hard to see. Cry
