A Nifty Gadget
I recently had a lesson on "demystifying" my overlocker at Easy Sew Sewing Centre in Elizabeth St. Whilst I was there I realised I needed this little gadget. It's a needle threader, which is very handy, but what I especially like is that on the opposite end to the threader is a small hole which allows you to hold a needle in place whilst you change it.
Unlike a sewing machine, an overlocker has a lot more parts which are accessible due to having to open it up & thread the upper & lower loopers. If you drop the needle then it can be a bugger to get it out again. I also bought a pair of tweezers which makes it easier getting the threads in and around and thru etc etc.
The threader was only $9.50 and well worth it, so it won't break the bank, but will make life whilst sewing just a tiny bit easier.
