Know Your Needles

Ever wonder what sewing machine needle is best to use for each project? Here is a handy guide to help take the mystery out of “knowing your needles”. This isn’t an exhaustive chart, but it should give you a good start in understanding the world of sewing machine needles. I’ve given you a little description with basic fabric info for each needle… truthfully, I use a Universal needle most of the time (size 80/12 to be exact). I do have all of these needles, however, and when the occasion to hem a pair of jeans (shhhh, don’t tell anyone I do that), or sew a patch on my brother’s leather motorcycle jacket arises, I have just the needle for the job! I hope this helps and you enjoy it :)

Happy Sunday everyone,
