Best I have found,
February 13, 2013
By: wbenoit
from Edinboro, PA
"I always used a small piece of wire - that I lost frequently - to thread my bobbins.
This bobbin threader is perfect - large handle - and nifty little loop at the end to pull out the thread.
I could not find this in any store."

"These are the worst bobbin threaders ever. They are too short to thread most bobbins including the new Orvis wood trimmed bobbins I just purchased. Needless to say these will be going back."
