    ​Aren't those cute! I think I would bring my needle to the store to make sure I could get a fine enough gauge wire to go through the eye easily. If you bought a reel of wire, you could make a whole bunch for your sewing friends for Christmas.

    I would love to have someone make them for me. I would buy the supplies and then never do anything with the supplies. Hate to admit how often that happens. What is it they say about good intentions?

    That looks like a great idea!! I am definitley going to give this a try. I seem to go through o many needle threaders just tying off and burying threads after quilting and this looks like an inexpensive way to go. Thanks for posting!

    have anyone try the threader for dental floss? You can find them at any store, where the toothbrushes are. I haven't tried it, but read somewhere that that would work too.
