How to Thread a Needle with Stranded Embroidery Floss - Video Tutorial

In the previous post you saw how to separate stranded embroidery floss so that it will give you a nice smooth stitch. In today's post I am going to show you an easy way to thread your needle with the stranded floss without feeling the need to wet the ends of the floss.

Here's the video. I hope you find it helpful.

Of course you can always invest in one of my favorite little tools, the DMC needle threader which I recently praised. But folding, pinching and sliding the eye of the needle over the floss is usually a quick and easy way to get all strands threaded onto your needle neatly.

Do you have any tips for something that seems so simple?
