I'm trying to sew in my ends with size 10 thread and keep breaking my needle threader. Any ideas of one that works with size 10 thread or a better idea to hide the ends? I've never gotten the magic thread thing to work for me.

I use a matching sewing machine thread [is it size 50] to sew in any ends that need it. Work with the magic threads. I always put them in anymore, but if one fails___which seldom happens___I can hand sew it.

i have been using magic thread trick, the points i hit is, make sure you tat so that the tension looks the same, and remember to NOT tat the last half of the very last stitch, cause see thats where the thread catches and holds. i use fishing line for this...although i need to get some thinner. :)

Another thing that sometimes causes magic threads to fail is putting the thread you are trying to hide all the way through, instead only put about 1/4 inch through the loop before pulling it. If you put it all the way through the loop it has no give room, if you only put 1/4 inch though it will pull it through and then you can pull it the rest of the way adjusting the tension so it looks good.
