: What is the meaning of the Yorkshire phrase "Thread t'needle"?

According to Eric Partridge, A Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English "thread the needle" is an obsolete phrase meaning to have sexual intercourse with a woman. I don't know that this is the Yorkshire meaning you're looking for.
