What needle should I use?

We are asked all the time “What needle should I be using for this project?” We have a simple answer to this question. Don’t stress too much about the type of needle you have in your machine. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it! If you are sewing along and not having any problems, then you have the correct needle in. However, if you start to have sewing problems, then your needle needs to be the first thing that you look at to fix those problems. Take advantage of the needle technology that is out there.
Each of the needles are made a specific way, with a specific material and shape to give you the best results for the sewing project that you are doing. If you are doing free motion quilting and you aren’t having any problems, then once again, don’t change a thing, you have the correct needle in. However, if you start breaking threads, or skipping stitches, then try to put a quilting needle in to improve your results. The quilting needle is ideally suited for your free motion project and can solve a lot of your problems. Same situation for you embroidery lovers. If you are doing your embroidery projects and shredding or breaking thread, try an embroidery needle to try and solve your problem. The embroidery needle is made from a heat resistant material and will help prevent those dreaded broken thread problems. Needle technology has changed drastically over the last 20 years.
We now have a specialty needle for almost any type of project you want to sew on. We have chrome plated needles that last 3 times longer than a regular needle. Once again, don’t stress about what needle you have in your machine until your machine starts giving you problems. When the problems start to occur it needs to be the first thing that you need to change to try and correct your problem. If you want some more information on needles or anything else sewing related make sure you come into either of the stores and we will be glad to answer your questions.

Going Above & Beyond for you,

Patrick and Kate
