I have threaded my needles this way for a very long time too - not a chance of ever going back to the one-eye-open-look-for-the-daylight-through-the-hole-tongue-poked-out-miss-by-a-mile method for me, no sir-ee.


That method has worked a treat since I picked it up in your Perth workshop. No more missing again & again & again, squinting & swearing at the soon need to wear glasses while stitching! Thanks Helen. xx


i'm a licker! my mum always did it and so do i!

May Britt

That is exactly what I tell the ladies in my classes too :)


Thanks for that beause I always have trouble threading my needle.


I've ways threaded my needle this way and people can't understand why I never have trouble threading a needle it really annoys me watching people do it the hard way.

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
