Needles may be tiny, but threading them can be an arduous process – even more so when they are of the smaller variety. But no need for despair! There are countless threading tools available to facilitate the task for us and make it a breeze.
Easily the simplest form of threading accessory is a needle threader, a tiny wire loop with an attached handle.

These small devices provide a little groove for the thread to slide into and it guides it, ultimately helping you get that thread through the eye. So if you’re having issues with using a needle, these aids may come in handy!
When you’ve pulled the thread through the eye of the needle, you need to a knot to keep it firmly in place. You could make a classic square knot, or you could go for a surgeon’s knot, specifically designed for threading needles. Either way, it’s important to secure the thread securely!
Securing a knot is no challenge – all you need to do is take some string and form a little circle. Next, put the tail of the string through the circle and pull – that’s all it takes! This will grant you a knot soundly stable enough to stay in place.
Once you’ve crafted a slight loop at the close of your thread, thread the needle through it and fashion an additional petite circle. Push the needle via this new loop then contract it securely. This professional-grade physique is especially reliable for intricate applications.
With the needle now securely threaded, you are all set to begin sewing. A few pointers to remember when using a threaded needle: Ensure the thread is fully drawn through the needle before starting, so as to hinder any entanglement; be mindful to not pull the thread too tightly otherwise it might snap; and make sure to secure the thread with a knot after completing the project, to prevent any unravelling.
You’ll be an expert at threading needles in a jiffy if you use the correct resources and with a bit of practice. It doesn’t need to be a taxing task!
