Put the thread between the tips of both your fingers (can't think of correct name.....finger next to thumb!

Make sure you can see a little bit of the thread past the tips of your fingers...........guide it into the eye of the needle.

Try it.........it works great for me.

I don't know, I still don't get it. If I could see the thread and the eye, then I wouldn't be having a problem threading the needle in the first place.

I was having a hard time threading my Featherweight and got out my small magnifier. Voila. It was simple then. You can get these small magnifiers in a number of stores. The entire size is about as big as your thumb. Great for getting out small stickers/slivers as well.

I read somewhere to wet the needle. AND, it works for me every time.

You can see a video demonstration of this needle-threading technique at the very beginning of this video, at about the 30 second mark. I had never seen this technique before and was amazed at how well it works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_EjBGz5vGQ&NR=1
