Hot Tip Tuesday #13, Threading a needle

Ever have trouble threading a needle?

I always lick the end of the thread to get it to go into the eye of the needle easier, but I learned recently that if you lick the eye of the needle instead it actually works better!  Try it, it works!

I learned another trick a few years ago and that is the eye of the needle is punch from one side, so one side of the eye is easier to thread through.  If you try and try and can’t get the thread to go through the eye, rotate the needle and thread through the other side of the eye.  This is also true, try it!

I hope this alleviates a bit of frustration for you as it has for me.

Until next time,
