Threading Needles

It is sometimes difficult to thread a needle.  When using perle cotton, there is a handy method of threading.  Lay the thread over your finger holding it loosely with the adjacent finger. With the other hand, rub the eye of the needle over the perle cotton so that the eye is in line with the thread. The perle cotton will curl into the eye of the needle and can be pulled through.
