To thread a beading needle, use the Easy Threader needle threader, designed to thread a needle with ease.
A Wide-Eye Needle™ is designed for easy needle threading. It is two lengths of wire joined at the ends, creating a very large eye in the middle. It is very thin, flexible and also ideal for using with seed beads. To thread a Wide-Eye Needle, slide your fingernail between the two halves of the needle, turn your nail slightly to widen the eye and insert your stringing material. Alternatively you can open the needle by lightly compressing it between your thumb and forefinger (holding it at the points), which will cause the eye to open.
Because each person has a slightly different needle preference for use on individual projects, you might want to purchase a few different lengths of English beading needles and the Wide-Eye Needle assortment to see which best fits your hand and specific projects.
