    Thank you for this great tip. Nothing more frustrating than trying to thread a needle. No longer a problem.

    Need to keep the hairspray with the sewing kit!! Think it sounds a neat idea anyway.

    Why not buy one of those little silver-coloured needle-threaders’?
    Been using those since a teenager!
    Much easier, & cheaper, than above ‘hint’!

      I think the hairspray trick is a great idea. I use the needle threaders but they do not last very long the wire keeps breaking after a few times of using it. Will definitely be trying this little trick.

    A needle threader is the way to go. Can be used when threading the needle in a sewing machine too.
