Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles Various Types
Standard equipment for many domestic sewing and overlock machine sold these days.
The Schmetz brand is well know for quality, I say this because not all needles are the same. We are constantly reminded of that fact. Customers bring their machines in telling us of the stitching problem they have. Upon investigation we do find the problem, a low quality needle. Its a easy fix for thread looping and snagging... run your thumb nail down the needle a few times, it should feel super smooth. Now do the same with a low quality needle and you will feel your thumb nail catching the tiny imperfections along the needle length!
All these needle listed here with the machine fitments are all domestic sewing or overlock models which take the regular needle type 15x1, 130/705 or HAx1.
No matter what your stitching, repairing or making yo can find the correct needle here.
We have Schmetz for embroidery, topstitching, quilting, stretch fabrics, cottons, jeans or denim, leather, or jersey fabrics.
We also have some very special double eye needles. That is one eye above the other. You can thread your machine with two different colours threads, then thread one colour through the lower eye and the other thread through the upper eye. Set your machine to sew a decorative stitch, you'll be very surprised at the lovely two colour stitch results. Be warned, you can't sew too fast using there needles.
I must point you to look at the quick / easy threading needles. Once inserted in to the machine as normal just slide the thread down the side of the needle and hey-presto the thread magically is threaded through the needle eye.! Yes, through a tiny latch at the side of the needle, so narrow it is hard to see.
