The needle threader is a handy sewing tool that makes threading sewing needles easy. Their origin is uncertain, but their development can be traced through the years.
What is a Needle Threader?
A needle threader is a small sewing tool that often consists of a round metal piece to which a diamond-shaped wire is attached. Many needle threaders are made from thin metal, such as tin, and are stamped with the shape of the queen’s head. This design dates to the Victorian era, though modern needle threader designs do exist. The diamond-shaped wire, the part of the tool that threads the needle, is typically very thin and flexible steel wire.
History of Needle Threader Hand & Machine Sewing
Needle threaders with the design with the queen’s head became popular during the Victorian era. Made from tin, Victorian era needle threaders were inexpensive to make and easy to use.
The first automatic needle threader incorporated into a sewing machine was designed by Juki in 1978.
