Needle Threading Tip – Back to School Blog Hop 2017

BTS 29 Cheryl Sleboda

When I teach classes on Heirloom sewing or eTextiles, I always come across the one person who HATES hand sewing because they can’t seem to thread the needle.  Even automatic needle threaders have difficulty with thick threads, and don’t work properly.  Well, friends, I have the MAGIC TRICK to threading a needle EVERY TIME that I teach in each of my classes.  You too can be the “needle whisperer”!  Check out my video below!
