    I got DH to take a few pics so maybe this will help. I learned this from cross-stitch (diagram I think) instructions years ago and have used it ever since.

    Takes some practice and sometimes it takes me more than one try but it is a LOT easier than threading the needle on my old Singer Genie ;-)

    put thread between finger and thumb

    pull down until just invisible but remember where it is

    slide eye of needle between pinched fingers right were you put the thread

    as needle eye slides over thread you can slowly unpinch

    then grab the thread poking out above the eye and pull it through

    And if you wet the NEEDLE, not the thread, it works really well!
