We’ve got robotic rovers crawling over the surface of Mars (at least we did) and put 12 men on the moon, but it took an inventive mom from Minnesota to come up with a sewing needle that’s dead-easy to thread. Pam Turner’s Spiral Eye Needles feature a simple yet clever design that makes getting a piece of thread through the eye seem like child’s play. (Note: if you buy one please don’t let your child play with it!)
They can be ordered in a variety of different sizes starting with a Size 4 Sharp Standard Needle up to a Size 26 Tapestry Needle for cross stitching, all for $5.50 a piece. Now I’ve never bought a needle in my life, so I don’t know if that’s expensive or not, but I’ve threaded enough needles to know they’re worth every penny.
