I always dread trying to thread a needle because the thread always seems to be so persistent and never wants to go in, I think that I have come up with a solution to this problem. I was reading a while ago that if, instead of trying to shove the thread in there by either licking it or any other means imaginable, you simple get the eye of the needle moistened and the saliva acts as a lubricant and draws your thread into it. At first I was a bit skeptical but after trying it a few times I found that it worked out and made threading a needle allot easier!
