after weeks with very few comments on this post I've finally found something y'all want!! wooohoooo!!
OK, Subvet video-taped me threading a needle, twice. Then he said "That's it!!??!! That's how you thread a needle????!!! That's so easy a blind man could do it!!! Here, let me try."
So you have a video of me doing it then a video of him doing it. His hands are much larger than mine so he adapted it to fit him and got it easily. As they say, the proof's in the pudding.
I grabbed my embordery thread and needle out of my current cross stitch project so this is a huge needle with a big eye, which is very good to start practicing this technique, but it's harder to get all 3 strands of floss threaded so I'd recommend just trying one to start with.
Now, the key to this is practice--LOTS. And teach your hands how to do it without looking. Like learning to type without looking at the keyboard, it just takes patience and repitition.
I want to thank Subvet for being a terrific sport!! You saw the first time he tried to thread a needle "my way" and he did a great job! He can hand sew and do basic mending, but hasn't sewn anything in at least 10 years that I know of.
