    Mine works on my Husquvarna if I have the needle position on a straight stitch, but of course I always use the 1/4" needle position. I get so tired of fighting with it all the time, so usually just thread myself.

    I don't always succeed with with the threader, but I have found more success by not only having the needle in the highest position, but also by moving the needle position ONCE to the right. When all else fails, I use the white- paper- behind- the- needle method.

    my Janome threader works when I use the Schmetz needles --if I use a Singer needle, I have to reposition the needle.

    Aunt Luc,

    Some needle threaders won't work if the thread is too thick. I had to read the fine print on my Babylock to figure that one out. Other than that, needle should be in highest position with the pressure foot down.

    Thanks for trying to help with getting the needle threader to work...I still haven't had any success with it yet.
    Needle threaders should be more user friendly... :twisted:
