This little bird makes threading needles a breeze! Its beak is a flat metal hook, thin and small enough to pass through the eye of most standard sizes of sewing and embroidery needle (and much sturdier than the traditional wire loop style). Just pass the beak through the eye of your needle, loop your thread over the hook and slide it into the notch, then pull the thread back through the eye. No need to reach for your scissors: there's even a tiny blade behind the wing to cut your thread. The body is molded for an easy grip and has a hole through which to thread a lanyard, and a clear cover protects the hook when the threader is not in use.
