Emergency Needle Threader

See these? I go through so many. May be I make them work too much by forcing fat thread through small needles, I don't know but I was really stuck one day and I know you clever chicks probably knew this already but for a moment there I felt like a genius when I discovered.......

.......Fishing line!

It just hasn't broken yet and if I lose it I get more from Mister nundes supply (un fished with of course) and if it does break I tie it in a knot and there is still tonnes left.

The beads are not really there to make it look beautiful, but to make it visible for us chicks who wear multifocals but keep forgetting to put them on. I'm never buying a wire needle threader again. Future emergencies averted. I have so much embroidery to do. Mainly colonial knots. Lots and lots of knots!
Cheers

What a great idea. I never thought of that and I break needle threaders every time I go near them.

A few years ago a friend taught me how to make a bear and her secret twine to close the bear off was thin dental floss ... flavour was an optional choice ;)

I'm wanting to do some sewing and knitting over our short winter, just have to get myself organised first*!*
