    frustrating - i thought that was one of the reasons women had smaller fingers to thread the needles

    doh!!!!

    must stop thinking out loud

    get a needle threader from your local haberdashery, like a little silver coin with a really thin wire hook thing attached - makes threading needles a breeze

    did you remember to insert a matchstick under the button whilst you were sewing it back on then taking the matchstick out and winding the thread round it to make a shank so the button is loose and this allows for the button hole part of the material to sit better? :whistling::thumbsup::p
