While not everyone can master the art of stitching, most of us can manage to do it in time to save nine in the future. Basic stitching like reattaching a button isn't that tough but before we begin doing the simplest of things, there's one process that everyone struggles to do no matter how good they are. Yes, we are talking about the skillful task of threading a needle. For years, we have been squinting our eyes, licking our fingers, and trying every possible concentration tactic to get the really tiny end of a thread into an even tinier hole. Although we eventually get the thread in after the millionth attempt, there's one question that comes to mind: Is there an easier way?

 

 

Well, looks like the stitching Gods have finally looked down upon us because someone has shared a simple hack to thread a needle which is sure to put us to shame. We hail Twitter user John Bick for sharing an extremely helpful video from a crafting site which shows how we can do the job without much hassle, reports The Sun. Understandably, not everyone believed that there was a better way to do something they have been struggling with for years, but this clip surely changed everything. 

 



 

 

The two-and-a-half-minute clip was captioned: That awkward moment when you realize you did it wrong your whole life. It begins with the person showing us the regular way of threading a needle first. Then he places a long string of thread on his palm and starts rubbing the needle end which has a hole/eye on the thread. After a moment of brushing them together, the thread goes through the hole and the person shakes the thread down before pulling it in, showing the world just how much time everyone has wasted in their lifetime while getting a thread in. Even Jason Alexander, the actor who played the role of George Costanza in the popular television series Seinfeld was left flabbergasted by the revelation, according to reports.

 



 

 

Although the account has since been deleted, Daily Mail reported that most of Bick's followers on Twitter were left amazed by the simple yet effective trick and described it as "magic." One user wrote: Good grief. After 50 years of going cross-eyed. Another shared: These are the reasons we have the Internet. Some were struggling to cope with the "sorcery" used in the video, reports The Sun. This is DARK MAGIC, expressed Khang Hoang. However, there were some who complained that the trick didn't work, but it was likely that they were making some obvious mistakes. So if you want the trick to work, clean and dry your hands perfectly. Make sure there no lotion or hand cream applied on your hands as it would affect the friction between the two materials for it to work. The rougher your hands, the more effective this process would be. So you might want to try using an area which has tougher skin than your palm, like your knuckles, to make it work better.
