10/10 Would (& do!) Recommend

I recently did an online embroidery workshop and so many people were struggling with threading the needle with multiple strands of floss...then there was me doing it like a piece of cake because I had previously purchased one of these Prym Needle Threaders.

I purchased mine in early/mid 2020 when I first started my mending journey, and unlike every other needle threader ever, it is yet to faulter some 12+ months on.

It has honestly made my sewing / mending / embroidery journey so much easier. I use it, without fail, on every project I do. It takes the fuss out of threading a needle and is a total no brainer.

I've just purchased some more for family / friends whom are avid quilters / sewists, however due to age and fading eyesight, threading a needle is becoming prohibitive to their craft - well, not anymore!!

Easily lost

The needle threader is good at threading the needle, but I lost it after only a few days. It is also hard to pick up out of my sewing box's tray because it sits flat on the bottom of the tray. I would prefer to have two separate needle threaders (i.e. not double ended) and have handles on them, like the plastic handles on some bow needle threaders.

I have now ordered a pack of ten cheap knock-offs and will try to put some cardboard handles on them myself. I'll see how this goes.

This is my favourite needle threader ever. It has one job (to help you thread your needle more easily) and it does that job superbly, without breaking. Unlike classic needle threaders made with wire, this is a sturdy stainless-steel plate that won’t fall apart when threading thick thread and yarn.

This needle threader is made for needles with long eyes (3mm+), such as embroidery, sashiko, tapestry and darning needles. It’s too large to use with most traditional hand-sewing needles but works well with:


  • Does its job without breaking (gosh, it’s a low bar, but it’s true!)
  • Suitable for thin and thick threads, including sashiko thread, embroidery thread, mending yarn and knitting wool
  • Two open hooks (3mm and 6mm wide) suit different needle sizes
  • Hole in the middle allows for attachment to a necklace or thread so it’s less likely to become lost
  • Sticks to magnets, for those who use magnets in their mending kits or for pin/needle storage

Made in China from stainless steel and packaged in a cardboard sleeve by the manufacturer.
