This could be considered TMI.

Or perhaps not.

Zagnut, behave yourself! (Yes, the mis-name is intentional. )

Do you have one that clamps onto something? Or with a base to set it on a table? Or a floor lamp? Or something I haven't seen?
My SIL got one when she was quilting. Now she uses it when she quilts, cross-stitches, reads, trims her nails...

You just don't know how to sell this. The fully intact undies are your winter ones, the ones with holes are you summer ones. Ventilation, you know.

And, in case we're keeping score, no bra here either. Just to keep things straight, Himself is the only one allowed to run the bases...

Oh well. Age has it's advantages and disadvantages.
Try a haberdashery shop for a needle threader or Google "needle threader". There are various types, the simplest being a thin diamond-shaped wire loop attached to a plasic holder. The wire loop passes through the eye of the needle, you put the thread trough the diamond and remove the wire from the needle.

There are more complicated arrangements available but this is the one I find the most useful. Works for all thicknesses of thread from sewing cotton to thick knitting yarn.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
