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.

Read through this (thread.) Pun intended

I'm with purchasing a lighted hands free magnifier.
My sister asked me the other day if I could finish up the last craft project that my Mother had started.It was supposed to be a gift for her husband.

I couldn't not only see the thread hole in the needle.But the tiny beads she was using. So I bought this one
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...A30PATI02BEUC3

I could have bought a floor lamp or one with a clamp.Some of those clamps are cheaply made. Tried it out last night.Excellent buy.
After I was finished my son used it to work on a computer.Hubby then used it when he took his prescriptions. Got a good laugh at the fine print.
"Do not take while pregnant, or nursing." ROFL!!!!!

It's handy and fits into my sewing table drawers.
