Needle threaders become more and more necessary the older I get, but I've gone through them way too quickly for far too long. They are too flimsy, they get lost, but mostly they break after a few uses and it annoys me. I found this one several months ago and it is a revelation. A solid, sturdy tip. A little cover to protect said tip. An attached thread cutter. And colorful so you won't immediately lose it in the couch. So many wins!
