At first glance, it’s a basic needle threader. Use it to thread small-eyed needles, like quilting betweens, up to larger-eyed embroidery needles. You’ll extend the threader with just the slide of a button. The threader locks in place until you are done

But it also cuts thread. Hold your thread firmly across the cutter and pull to cut the thread. No scissors are needed! Pretty handy, huh?

Finger grips on the front and back make it easy to slide the button and hold onto the threader as you use it.

And the best part of all … it’s got a long-lasting and bright LED light to help you thread even the smallest eye! TIP: It’s easiest to thread if you hold your needle and threader over a dark background.

Have fun with your sewing supplies like we did with this lanyard. Keep your threader handy by inserting a jump ring into the hole at the back of the threader – now it can be easily attached to a lanyard, hook, etc. It’s never lost!
