The talented Craig Bevelheimer (spotstudio.tv) took the lead on this project, and I assisted with the challenge of threading a needle .The biggest challenges with this project was the simulation of the thread animation, and the fray at the end of the thread.  

Completed August 27, 2013
special thanks to Kevin Sanchez for helping with the subtle texturing on the needle in Cinema4D
