Tapestry needle

I'm trying to help a friend who cannot see to thread their needles, however they spoke to some one who has the same problem and was using something that looked double pointed ?? They said they bought it on line and it was called The Big Needle - googling this gives a recommendation for a Ken Follet book does anyone have any ideas please?


When you google "the big needle" you can add "-follett" and that should exclude results with follett's name in them.

Doing that, and selecting "shopping" I found some links, though I don't know that any of those are quite what you're looking for, I do see one with eyes on both ends.

Stores that have sewing notions for sale should have needle threader devices for sale, very cheap. Look like a small disc with two thin wires at one side, arranged in a sort of diamond shape.

Thread wires through eye of needle. Because they are stiffer than thread this is much easier. Put thread through diamond shaped opening. Pull needle threader back through eye of needle.

Hey presto, needle is threaded.

I thought that might be a solution too Jam Lady. Haven't heard of the other needle I am afraid.
