When I was younger (in my teens) and learning to sew. I came across a contraption and came in those nifty starter sewing kits. I couldn't figure out what it was. When I finally learned it was a needle threader, I scoffed. Why would you need something like that? Oh, the arrogance of youth.
Now, I wish I could find the one that came with the girls' sewing kit. I'm sure the eye of the needle has gotten smaller. It must be. It couldn't possibly be because my eyesight has worsened.
