I may need to ask a few more questions in order to best serve you.
Thank you for your patience.
Answers here are for education and information only.
There are some products out there that may help you. Have you tried any device that helps thread a needle?
Ok, sorry about the delay in an answer. My wife recently took up sewing and she had a sewing bee last night so was waiting to have her ask the women in her sewing group if they knew of any devices.
They were not aware of any devices, but they did recommend calling this sewing machine repair company since the owner has a lot of experience and they thought the owner (Pavel) would have some ideas on what could work and where to order them from.Woodland Sewing Machine Repair (Woodland, CA) -Phone number(###) ###-####br />They are open from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm today (California time)Let me know if that helps.
There are needle holders, like THIS, readily available... the trouble will be to tighten the clamp while the needle is held firmly in the correct position as you can appreciate
If you can use one of these holders, with your weak hand, then good to go, if not, you will likely need a friend
It may not be the total solution you had hoped for, but I do not know the extent of your restricted movement
If you can use one of these holders, with your weak hand, then good to go, if not, you will likely need a friend, there is no device to aid the clamping, or the need to do two things at once
It may not be the total solution you had hoped for, but I do not know the extent of your restricted movement, but I do understand the frustration, I am deaf
I had a sudden thought in the middle of the night.... a magnet
If you were to place a magnet on the Side of the Clamping block, it will hold the needle in place firmly enough to be then able to tighten the screw to secure the needle... a bit of a fiddle, but still makes it possible without having to call for reinforcements !
Would need to be removed before sewing of course
What do you think ??
Oh, don't worry, nothing disturbs my sleep !!I do get inspirations at the oddest times and I count this as a good thing !Just let me know as and when... it may be one to share
