A small but significant problem had while sewing is threading the needle. Especially as you get up in years, and the eyes are not what they "should" be, when you are tired late at night but have a project that absolutely has to get done, it just gets hard to thread the needle. Here is a simple solution, helps to save the sanity and lessen that frustration!
Step 1: Gather Materials
Of course there are the commercial threaders, not very expensive, but if you are like me, we misplace them, can't find it when needed, etc. I wanted to be able to continue with out running to a store, so came up with the solution shown here. All I needed was a small piece of "tin" cut from a pepsi can, and a short length of multi-strand copper wire. I used wire cutters, wire stripper, small pliers, etc.
