When I was asked about what I found best to use to thread sewing machine needles
*** Newest Find
I have found this to work the best especially on the embroidery machine. [Don’t know how well it will work on regular sewing machines.]
I have been using Large eye beading needles which are usually used when threading seed beads on to cord. It is a thin piece of wire attached on both ends and they are like 5” long and bend in the middle. They are long enough to put in eye of the needle & put thread in between wires and pull thru to the opposite side. I find it easier to get the tip into the groove on the needle and with pressure can guide it down to the eye of the needle.
I also use size 14 needles top stitch needles. The needles are thicker which makes the needles a little larger and the top stitch needles have a larger eye. The size 14 machine needles embroidery needles have an eye a little smaller than the top stitching needles due to decorative threads which might be a bit thinner used for top stitching.
