Is there an easy way (or any way) to insert thread through beads?  I would be grateful for an help with this please, I have trouble seeing detail enough to thread a needle and wonder if there is an easy way to get the thread though beads.  I am not jewellery making, just adorning something.

Hi 😉

You can buy threading needles that are flexible and open all the way down.  Just bend them a little and there is a large opening to put the thread though. I think you can find them at most craft stores. 
Good luck.

Locate a needle that will easily fit through the bead holes.
With about 4 inches of regular thread, thread the needle and tie a knot.
Now loop the thread you want to string the beads with through the thread that has the needle attached.
String the beads using the needle.

Thank you Ladies, you have both given me some excellent ideas and information here, Wimsy, I can use some fuse wire or similar by the sound of it to do the same thing and Rozelynne, the idea of only having to thread a needle once is brilliant, thank you both.

You can try dental floss threaders, Christine: https://goo.gl/yFF97a Similar to what some others suggested. Economical and easy to use, a lot of them per pack. They last a long time too!

I raided the shed and found some fuse wire and that has worked beautifully, even with the tinest holes and better still it did not cost anything (have been doing my annual accounts and finding out just how much I am spending - its scary, I must start selling stuff, ) so that is a bonus.

Thanks for your suggestions which gave me the idea [biggrin]
