Schmetz Microtex Needles (100/box)
Schmetz Microtex Needles (100/box)

Thinner & Sharper Design

Compatible with most sewing machines and applicable to most projects, the Schmetz Microtex Needles come thinner and sharper than the Schmetz’s Universal Point Needles. Their extremely sharp, acute points make them perfect for topstitching, piecing, quilting, and appliqué.

Note: On this drop, you will receive one 100-pack of needles. At check-out, you have your choice of size between #60/8, #70/10, #80/12, and #90/14.

Size Differences

Depending on what type of thread you’re working with, every size 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), and the #90/14 with medium threads (40 wt).
