I was thinking about gettin' me "more time to enjoy the things in life that don't need mending," and these came in the mail. I've purchased a lot of different needle threaders, or as I call them *waste of my money*--that's probably because I'm trying to stuff some large embroidery thread through them. This worked like a charm. I threaded a size 5 floss on the 20 chenille needle and also tried the size 8 for general thread/quilting. The test will be whether I manage to break them. I am genetically opposed to threading the eye of a needle. If I added up all the time I spent squinting and cursing...I'd probably extend my life by a significant amount. Didn't squint once!
