    I have one! And, I, too, can't live without it.

    HINT 1: I know some have said they couldn't get it to work. I hold the thread on both sides....pushing it toward the little lever. The minute I pull the lever down, I let go of the thread. It threads it each and every time.

    HINT 2: It will not, EVER, thread the needle if you put the needle in upside down! :mrgreen:

    I have seen these before and wasn't sure it would work. Now I know. I'm getting one or maybe several.

    Yes, they really do work, however; it only works with one type of needles. The needles aren't expensive, but check the packaging to make sure you get the right type. I hold the thread with my thumb and pointer finger to hold pressure on the thread (make it taunt) and it works every time.
    I love mine!

    These are a wonderful tool. I purchased one when I took an applique class and found it to be a wonderful, inexpensive tool. Thank you for sharing.

    Looks like a great idea for a Christmas stocking stuffer. I know, early to be thinking of Christmas but the more ideas I give the more likely I will get stuff I want/need rather than candy :)

    I have looked at these and wondered if they really worked. I guess I am going to try one. Thanks for the input.

    Before Clover there was a small red and white auto needle threader. It works great on any type eye needle but won't thread the small between size needles.

    Thank you for showing how this works. I was given a bag of notions and one of these was in the bag. I had no idea what a treasure I had!
