December 8, 2008 - You learn something new every day

So I have been threading needles for at least 45 years. I was reading a book called Better Homes and Gardens Complete Guide to Quilting. Here is a new way to thread the needle and it works like a dream.

Instead of wetting the end of the thread, wet the eye of the needle. Hold the thread near the wet eye and it just slips in by capillary action.

Who knew?
