My Heart!

  1. Oh no!!! How does that happen – things actually disappearing into thin air. Having said that my machine comes with a needle threader which worked perfectly for a few weeks, then once I change the needle packed up and has never worked since (and this was an expensive brand new machine). I couldn’t bring myself to take it back to the shop or for a service for such a small thing, but maybe I need to do that now.

    1. Well of course, despite scouring a very small room, as soon as I ordered new ones, the ruddy thing turned up in absolute plain view, right where I’d been looking. Damn those sewing gnomes! Shall I send you one of the ones I’ve ordered?

      1. On the other hand if you hadn’t ordered a new one the original would not have turned up. It’s a law of physics – Schroedinger’s cat or something like that. I once did the same thing with a lost library book and ended up with 3 copies of one dull (but sadly expensive) book.

      2. Gotta say, I was 100% confident you’d find your fancy doomajiggie as soon as you ordered not one, but two replacements!

        I have to say (too lazy to go back in posts to find previous recommendations), I’ve never heard of this thingie. Is this for a machine that doesn’t have an automatic threader-whose-its? I did not know it existed, but if my threader-whose-its dies, I hope my squirely brain retains this discovery.

      3. Yep the little doodad threads machine needles, a hook for snagging the thread [useful for the overlocker] and at the other end has a nifty little holder for inserting needles as well. Very useful for fumble-fingered me! The desktop threader that I adore is for hand sewing needles, a wondrous beast!

  2. Glad it turned up…always a good thing to have spares if the truly indispensable stuff too. I knew you had something for threading hand sewing needles but didn’t realise there was a machine one. I tend to rely on tweezers and licking the end of the thread 🙂

      1. The Clover desktop one works for me, and then it Stops. Utterly Stops. Waves it’s little plastic hand in the air like it just don’t care. Bollocks indeed. I am glad the heir and the spares will be threading for you.

      2. Lol some needles it threads with its hands behind its back, some you have to wiggle and jiggle and swear at. Still easier than trying any other method! I love the thing to death.
