My mother had this in one of her drawers of her sewing machine cabinet. Let me tell you, I LOVE this thing!
The big metal section clips onto the needle and the itty bitty wire goes through the eye of the needle. The thread hooks onto the wire and is pulled through the eye. It's cool for those with unsteady hands or is lazy like me! Ha!
I tried to find information or dates on this particular item. So far, nothing, nada, zilch. Anybody out there have history of this or similar items?
