One of the most difficult parts of sewing is pushing the thread through a needle. It’s such a difficult thing to do and you need precision to get it right. Yes, you have to go through a lot of trouble before you can even start.
You don’t have to be a genius to thread a needle. All you need to do is to successfully pass the thread through the tiny hole of the needle. Frustrating? Yes, of course, but that’s the only way we know how to do it. But then a recent viral video stunned a lot of people and showed us all that we’ve been threading needles wrong all our lives.
You see, there’s an easy way to thread a needle and it doesn’t require countless trials and errors. And it’s also ridiculously simple, that you’ll actually be enraged that you didn’t know about it sooner.
The video shows that all you have to do it so place the thread flat in your palm, then roll the needle back and forth and voila!
Seems pretty easy, but it works! Imagine the amount of time you could have saved if you only knew about this earlier.
Twitter user first @JohnBick4 shared the video from a crafting site, captioning it, “That awkward moment you realize you did it wrong your whole life.” The post has been blowing the minds of everyone who sees it, including Matthew A. Cherry, who retweeted and captioned the post: “What type of sorcery is this?”
As expected, netizens were mindblown after learning about the hack.
“I have been sewing since over 50 years now… and had never seen this !! thank you, never too late to learn!!!” One said. “This is what social media should be about. People sharing helpful ideas about what they actually know,” another one wrote.
