Threading Needles - Can you say "Aaargh!" No one likes to thread needles and if we could avoid it by using longer pieces of thread we would. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and thread one.
The easiest way to thread a needle is to take the thread between index finger and thumb and using your fingernail flatten the end of the thread. Keep the thread pinched between those two fingers and bring the needle to the thread. Should be able thread with minimual trouble. If that fails, cut the tip of the thread and begin process again. If the second go around, fails use a needle threader.
