In this video, I show a tip for threading your beading needles more easily. The trick is to bring the needle to the thread instead of trying to put the thread through the eye of the needle.

I mostly want you to see how I hold the materials in my hands. Left hand: I really pinch the bit of thread between my thumb and index finger to where only a tiny bit is showing. Right hand: I roll the needle between my thumb and index finger until the eye is in the East-West position. My forearms are braced on the table, and my hands are supporting each other to minimize shaking. Then, I just slide the needle onto the thread.

This method works so well for me that I can do it in a moving car on the first try!

What do you think? Does this method work for you? Have you developed your own way to thread a needle? Please share with us in the comments!
