    I have two of them, I lose things in this mess and I love them. Connecting Threads has the best price I have found on these and they are having a sale. I love notions and gadgets. Have to many? Nah

    I bought mine last year at my favorite LQS. I use it everyday. I agree, how did I ever live (see?) without it. I even bought one for my DS who also quilts.

    I bought this from Missouri Star Quilt company and it only uses certain kind of needles, none that I had, and was so disappointed it wouldn't work for me.

    I have a Connecting Threads gift certificate that I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for. Now I know! Thanks!

    Thanks so much for sharing. I had no idea. I've seen those other threaders - if I can't get the thread thru the eye, how on earth am I gonna get the THREADER thru the eye?

    May have to visit the LQS this afternoon!

    Think I'll go look at mine more closely. Maybe mine is broken instead of my needle being too little.

    I've been having a fit trying to thread my needles 'cause I have a hard time trying to get even a wire threader thru the eye! I WILL get one of these! I'll bet it could be used to thread the needle for my FW, then fit it in? THANKS!

    I agree that threader is great.

    I found another item by accident and love it, so I appreciate the feeling: http://www.clover-usa.com/product/0/...ed_Needle_Case

    I love it for doing binding. I can have 10 needles all threaded and ready to go. I did have trouble locating more after my first one, but this way I can be ready to do binding for either a large quilt (I have been doing more queens and kings lately) or more than one quilt.

    Saw yours and looked on ebay and have ordered one. I'm taking a hand sewing project when my husband and I go to France in our motorhome for five weeks later this month. Many thanks for the excellent tip.

    I have one and I LOVE mine! I don't know why I resisted buying one for so long (but I did use a 50% off coupon @ JoAnns). Believe me it's worth the money.

    I have had this threader for about 2 years and it works as well as the pictures show. They have come down in price and Joann's does have notion sales and coupons.
