Usually when I thread my embroidery needles I use the old fashioned method. You know how it’s done. You pop the end of the thread in your mouth, chew on it, and get it good and wet. Then you flatten the end of the thread out with your fingers and slide it through the eye of the needle. Messy but effective.
But lately I’ve been looking for a more refined method of threading my needles. Something that makes me look lady like and less like a horse with a straw poking out of his mouth. So I’ve done a survey of needle threaders. You’re probably familiar with these two above.
Those types of needle threaders are OK but the best needle threader I’ve found is made by Clover and it is called an Embroidery Threader. It’s a little pricey (about $10) but works great for my sizes 5 – 1 embroidery needles. No more thread chewing for me!
