    i have a vintage sewing machine that doesn't have a needle threader and for the life of me i can't thread it.

    does anyone know of a good needle threader for a machine (it doesn't have to attach to the machine) aside from those awful tin things with the wire.

    I have a couple of these and they work wonderfully. I don't remember paying that much for them tho. I think I got mine from either Hancocks or Joann's.

    I have one old machine without a threader as well - My trifocals give me fits when I use it. I have solved the problem by using old fashion Beeswax in a holder (the kind that you Grandmother used to use!!). I run the thread end through it and then in the waxed portion cut at a small angle - the thread usually goes though the hole in the needle nicely. I also use this when threading the loopers in my serger as well as hand sewing needles.

    Thanks for the site. I will order this as well. I have been searching for a threader that is not that thin wire useless thing.

    This looks like a "must have" gadget. Anyone know whether it.s available in the UK?
