National Thread The Needle Day is observed annually on July 25th. Since the phrase “Thread the needle” has multiple meanings, we recognize several ways to celebrate the day!
Here are some of the different meanings of “Thread the Needle.”
Literal meaning – Taking a thread and guiding it through a sewing needle

Game move – A type of billiards move where the ball is shot precisely through a narrow pathway
Yoga pose – Also known as para balasana, the pose brings the body to a kneeling position with both hands on the floor (table pose). Slide the left hand all the way to the right beneath the body. The head and shoulder should rest comfortably on the floor, creating a slight twist in the spine.
