As I have gotten older it has become harder and harder to thread a needle when I am sewing. I blame it on my transitional lenses, which make it hard to see where I’m trying to put the thread. The other day I was sorting through my sewing supplies and came upon this little gadget. I figured it must have an important use to have been saved all these years. Maybe it would help me with how to thread a needle.

Let me explain, I have inherited sewing material from my mother and my grandmother. I had no idea where this gadget came from and the only identifying mark on it was the word “Witch”.

After a little online investigation I found that it was a needle threader. I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first but I decided to give it a try. To my surprise it worked like a charm. I will share the photos of this wonderful object and I am going to share a little video I made just so you can see for yourself. Click HERE to watch the video.

Looking at this small tool you would never think it could actually help you when wondering how to thread a needle. However it works like a charm and threads the needle every time. Now if I could just figure out how to use it to thread the needles on my sewing machine.

This tiny little red plastic device is going in the bag with my important sewing tools. I can see myself using this tool for many years to come. I’m not sure where it came from or whom it originally belonged to but I’m so glad it didn’t get tossed out. Have you ever heard of a Witch Needle Threader? If you ever find one be sure to add it to your sewing basket.

I did not know that was the name of this needle threader, but mine broke after many years of use and I could not find another one. I love this needle threader.
