Successful Stitching, A note from your technician:
Knowing your needles. Needles are one of the most important supplies of your machine, but when I ask a customer “what type of needle are you using?”, I get “I don’t know” or “The one I had.” I ask “How often do you change your needle?” and get “When it breaks.” Sewer’s and quilters wonder why their machines don’t sew well. In today’s sewing and embroidery projects there are numerous types of fabric and thread. Did you know that in just standard sewing needles there are 8 different sizes? 9/65, 10/70, 11/75, 12/80, 14/90, 16/100, 18/110, and 20/120. The smaller the number the smaller the needle. What changes on the standard needle from size to size is the shaft of the needle and the size of the eye of the needle. The two most common sizes of standard needles are the 80/12 (light to medium) and 90/14 (medium to heavy), but lets say you are sewing some silk or satin? You would use a 9/65 or 10/70. What about mending jeans or heavy work? You would use a 16/100 or 18/110. This just hits the needle tip of the iceberg! For more information on needles to suit your sewing projects please come in and talk to one of our Sew Pro’s!
