    You should really clarify in the beginning that this only works will thin thread bc I spent a lot of time trying this and turns out I need a needle with a bigger eye sorry. This step by step was great but because of this I broke my threaded

    Thank you, Sun Shine. I will do my bit of work and add this piece of info in the spanish guide, so that no issues with that can happen again. Thank you very much for pointing it out, and good repairing!!

  6. Pull the tail end of the thread until both threads are equal in length. Holding both lengths of thread together, tie a knot near the end and pull it tight. This will trap the needle in the loop of thread and allow you to sew with doubled thread. If you prefer to sew with a single thread, tie a knot in only one of the threads, not both.

For years I have been doing this the hard way. I had no idea what the threader was. I have thrown so many away not knowing what they were. Thank you so much. You've made what i enjoy doing (sewing projects), even more enjoyable.

Though I had a needle threader but didn't know how to use it ?

Your guidelines really helped me. Thanks a lot.

Thank you. My automatic needle threader on sewing machine is off track and I'm not in the mood to locate online how to fix/correct it today. I had plenty of handheld and long neck serger needle threaders in my stash and couldn't figure out how to thread my needle on sewing machine with the long neck threader, but you helped me with that, thanks.

Thank you. Like the others, I had no idea how to use the threader. I just refastened two buttons to pairs of pants!

Have you ever had the problem where you can't get the wire through the head of the needle? The hole is so tiny it won't let the wire go through. Probably why the sewing kit was such a “bargain” price, so frustrating.

I am 66 years old.I always knew about a needle threader,but could not figure out how to use it. ( My mother was a seamtress but passed away June/2011 ) I guess I never did ask her how to use it OR, I never needed to, as my eyes were still good.Now they are not so good, thus ,explains why I have a hard time to thread the needle.So I going to sew up a quilt for my 4 year old grandson,this morning & guess what? NO,I could no NOT thread the needle.So I decided to google it.I found it on: ifixit.com Excellent! Finally!! No,I am on that great on the computer yet.But,I am learning.

Thanks for the help—it worked—but Step 4 is much harder than it sounds or looks.
