To make sure that you always have a sharp needle at the ready, stock up with this 4-pack of Schmetz chrome needles. Compatible with most sewing machines and applicable to most projects, they bring strong, durable, long-lasting performance to your home fabrication and help you avoid shredded threads, uneven stitches, and damaged fabrics.
Note: On this drop, you’ll get four packs of Schmetz Chrome needles. Each pack contains five needles. At checkout, you’ll have your choice of sizes: Universal 60/8, Universal 70/10, Universal 80/12, Universal 90/14, Universal 100/16, Microtex 60/8 (+ $3), Microtex 70/10 (+ $3), Microtex 80/12 (+ $3), or Quilting 90/14 (+ $4).
This light ballpoint needle is great for all woven and knitted fabrics, and helps prevent shredding and breakage when sewing with metallic and other machine embroidery threads.
These come thinner and sharper than the universal needles, and are ideal for topstitching, piecing, quilting, and appliqué.
Made especially for piecing and machine quilting, the special tapered design allows for easier fabric penetration and helps eliminate skipped stitches.
Depending on the type of thread you’re working with, every size of needle has a different specialty. Size #60/8 needles have an extra fine point, which is needed for sewing sheer fabrics like voile or satin. The #70/10 works best with very fine threads (60 wt), the #80/12 with fine threads (50 wt), the #90/14 with medium threads (40 wt), and the #100/16 with heavier threads (30 wt and heavier).
