    I use a piece of leather to grab the needle with and pull the needle through. It works better than trying to do it with your fingers. I also used a thick piece of leather as a thimble to push the needle through, i found that I had a little more control of the needle with the leather instead of a metal thimble. I broke too many needle using a metal thimble.
