TIPS FOR BETTER SEWING
However fantastic your sewing machine, it can only stitch as well as its needle will allow. The needle is the part of the machine that interacts with the fabric. Schmetz are wonderful sewing machine needles and come in all shapes and sizes.
Change needles regularly dont just change a machine needle if it breaks after 5 years! Under normal sewing conditions a needle should be changed after 8 hours of sewing and I put a new needle in for each new garment or project.
Use the correct type of needle for your fabric and the result will be worthwhile.
It is not just the size of the needle to look out for!
Needles may all look the same but they have different types of points and eyes.
