I found the most wonderful needle threader, for the sewing machine, that I just have to let those of you with tired eyes like mine. It is made in Australia, carried at Nancy's Notions and costs around $14.00. It is called Perfect Sew Universal Needle Threader and Needle Inserter. You hold the device in your left hand, I am right handed and this did not prevent me from using this, and slide the thin wire through the needle's eye. There is a loop on the wire, almost invisible, it catches the thread and you pull the wire toward the back of the machine and your needle is threaded! I love it? On the other end of the tool is a holder to hold the sewing machine needle to insert it in your machine. So far I can do that without help of a tool, but I'm glad I have it for later. I have spent up to ten minutes trying to thread my machine needle until I'm ready to scream, but with this tool it is a snap.
