Here’s a sewing hack: if you’re having trouble threading a needle, try using a toothpick to help guide the thread through the eye of the needle. #toothpicks #sewinghack
Toothpick sewing hack
1. Simply moisten the end of the thread and then place the end of the thread onto the toothpick.
2. Hold the toothpick with the thread against the eye of the needle, and gently push the toothpick through the eye. (The thread should follow the toothpick through the eye of the needle, making it much easier to thread.)
This can be especially helpful if you’re working with fine or slippery thread, or if your eyesight is not as sharp as it used to be.
