This helpful tool is specially designed for sewing machine needles. On the one hand, it holds the needle to insert it into the machine. It also allows you to thread the needle without having to search for the eye. The mechanism works just as well with hand sewing needles. Granted: you should watch the video linked below once to understand how it’s done – but then it’s infinitely helpful for sewing machines that don’t have a built-in threader.
