As we get a little older, it gets a little harder to thread our sewing machine needle. I have an automatic needle threader on my machine, but it does not work properly.  That is my only complaint on my machine.  I wish it had a better needle threader.  Anyway, I have a little tip to help you out if you have to do it by hand.  I have always tried looking for a piece of white paper to hold behind the presser foot holder every time I have to thread my needle.  Well no more and this does a great job.

I added a tiny piece of white tape to the presser foot holder.  What I actually used was a tiny piece of white electrical tape. I purchased a whole pack of different colors at Harbor Freight.  I just checked and I don't see it listed on their site anymore, but there were many other stores available who carry it.  It looks like this.

Now I just cut a tiny square the size of my presser foot holder and placed it on the very tip of the holder.  It holds great and is an amazing help if you need it. 

Now put your presser foot holder back on your sewing machine and see what a difference it makes.  I would think you could also add a little bit of paint to the top of this foot and I bet that would work also.  

It just opens up the light so much going through the hole of the needle and makes this job so much easier.  Give it a try!
