Janome Ballpoint Sewing Machine Needles – Select Size
Sewing Machine Needles
Select size from drop down menu.
The Janome Ballpoint needle is the go-to needle for stretchy or knit fabrics. The rounded tip allows for the needle to slip between fibres rather than pierce them. Available in various sizes for different weights, simply select your desired size from the drop-down menu above.
There are many different types of hand-sew needles, so why can’t there be different machine needles?
While there aren’t as many different types of needles for your machine as hand sewing, you still should know the basics of what each needle does and how it can help you! It makes a big difference to your finished result having the correct needle so here’s some info to help guide you through. The most basic Needles are usually either the Sharp or Ballpoint.
The Common Sharp Needle
For most standard sewing fabrics a straightforward 15 x 1 Sharp needle is all you need. Janome includes with all new machines a pack of mixed needles to get you started. They’re designed with an extra fine point to pierce densely woven fabrics such as microfiber or thin smooth fabric like taffeta or coated fabrics.
The Ballpoint Needle
For stretchy fabrics that a sharp can struggle with, the 15 x 1 Ballpoint needle is what you need. It has a rounded tip that goes between the fibres of the fabric rather than cutting them. Use of a ballpoint needle is recommended on cotton knit, tricot, jersey knits and
For more speciality fabrics and sewing projects like quilting, Janome produces needles that are identified by more than just the sharp of the needle tip. Various sizes, shapes, eyes and strength determine the class of needle. For these particulars, Janome supplies Purple, Red, and Blue tips among other specialty needles which offer the user features for specific applications.
The Purple Tip Needle
is a size 14 ball point needle with a specially designed cobra shaped tip specific for piercing thick layers of fabric, moving between fibres and effectively the best needle for avoiding skip stitches in stretch knit and quilting. Because they are designed to avoid skip stitching, they are also usable with Cover Stitch models.
The Blue Tip Needle
is a size 11 ball point needle which is designed with a longer scarf (indentation on the back allowing the hook to pass closely and form the stitch). The
needle works well on light-medium weight knit fabrics and is the recommended needle for light
to medium weight embroidery. Also it works well when quilting with polyester thread.
The Red Tip Needle
is a size 14 sharp point, which is good for general sewing of medium
weight fabrics.The larger eye makes it great for thicker or corded threads like upholstery or metallic thread, which tends to split.
The Denim Needle
has a special wedge shaped tip with a sharp edge to produce optimum results
when sewing through multiple layers of dense thick fibers like denim and canvas.
The Leather Needle
has a lens shaped point for cutting through leather and leather type fabrics like vinyl. A longer stitch length is recommended so there is extra distance between the holes created by the needle, or else you may lessen the integrity of the material.
But what about these other numbers found on my needles?
Just like dress sizes, shoe sizes, and baking – every country has their own system of measurement. Luckily it’s not hard to gauge the equivalent!
eg. A Janome Sharp size 9 will have 65/9 stamped on the shaft.
Shaft, Scarf, what are you talking about?
Oh right! We should probably talk about the structure of the needle! All Janome compatible needles will be the same shape at the shank to sit into the needle clamp – make sure the flat side faces away from you. All needle with be the same length so as not to interfere with the way your machine hook forms the stitch. It is only the size of the shaft and the shape of the tip that determines just how differently your sewing experience will be. That’s right – such a small thing can make a huge difference!
So don’t settle for cheap generic needles – their quality and effectiveness can cost you more than their price tag. Use Genuine Janome Sewing Machine Needles to get the best sewing experience.
Choosing the Right Sewing Machine Needle
You probably already know the rule of thumb for sewing machine needles: install a new one at the beginning of each project. When a needle is piercing your fabric at 600 to 1,000 stitches per minute, small things like a dulled point or an eye that’s beginning to wear, can make a big difference in the quality of your stitches. But it’s just as important to choose the right kind of needle. This is information we like to run at least once a year because it’s such a good reminder to us all. Our thanks to Janome America and Janome Canada for helping us with the fine points of machine needles.
If you look at the needle display at your local sewing dealer, you might see a dozen or more different types. They all look pretty much the same unless you pull out a magnifying glass. But, different needles do have different tips, eyes, shanks, groves, and shafts; and what you select can make a big difference in how well your machine sews through your fabric.
Also, it’s important to take into consideration who makes the needle. Here at Sew4Home, our exclusive sewing machine sponsor is Janome America, and we do our sewing on Janome machines. Because Janome makes a line of needles designed especially to run on their machines, that’s the brand of needle we use on a regular basis. However, the needle basics are appropriate for all machines as is the recommendation to change your needle on a regular schedule.
All sewing needles have essentially the same parts:
Shank: The upper end of the needle, which is inserted into the machine. On the vast majority of needles, the back of the shank is flat to make it easier to correctly insert them.
Shaft: The body of the needle below the shank. This will vary in thickness depending on the size of the needle.
Front Groove: This groove, located on the front of the shaft, acts as the last thread guide before the thread goes through the eye of the needle.
Scarf: The short indentation above the eye of the needle. It allows the hook on your bobbin case to get close to the eye of the needle so it can catch the thread loop and form the stitch. Janome needles have a longer, deeper scarf to help eliminate skipped stitches.
Eye: You know what this is: the hole at the end of the needle through which the thread passes. Janome needles have especially smooth eye holes to keep thread feeding smoothly and to avoid snagging.
What the heck are those random numbers? The first thing you see on a needle package is the needle size. This will usually be shown as one number over another, such as: 70/10, 80/12 or 90/14. These numbers refer to the size of the needle and you really only need to pay attention to one of them.
The larger of the two numbers is the needle size according to the European numbering system. European sizes range from 60 to 120; 60 is a very fine, thin needle and 120 is a very thick, heavy needle. Some companies list American first, some list European first.
The smaller number is the needle size according to the American numbering system. The American system uses 8 to 19. So 8 is a very fine, thin needle and 19 is a very thick, heavy needle. In the US, this may be the only number you see on the needle pack.
The different size needles have been designed for optimal sewing on different weights of fabric.
For example, if you are going to sew a sheer window curtain, you would want a fine needle such as 60/8. Using a 120/19 would leave giant holes in your fabric. On the other hand, if you were to try to sew through upholstery fabric with a 60/8 needle, it could bend or break. Using a 120/19 would give you extra strength to penetrate heavy home décor fabric and would have an eye large enough to carry the thicker thread you’re likely to use.
The different needle sizes described above really just reflect the thickness of the shank (the main part) and the size of the eye. You can also get specialized needles that have modified points, eyes, tips, and even heads (the area right behind the tip). Some of our favorites are listed below.
The most common recommendation for general sewing is to use an 11/75 or 14/90 universal needle.
Janome manufactures three main needle styles to help guarantee professional-looking results.
Janome Blue Tip Needles
These are the original needles manufactured by Janome for general sewing on most fabrics as well as for machine embroidery. They are a size 11 needle with a slight ball point tip that makes them good for most wovens, although they are also especially well suited to sewing knits, fine fabrics, and synthetic fabrics. When a needle does not pierce adequately, it can drag the fabric downward toward the bobbin area, causing what is know as “flagging.” You can experience puckered seams, damaged fabric, and thread snags and breaks. A slight ball point tip goes between the fabric’s fibers, avoiding these issues. Blue Tip needles also have an oversize eye, which better accommodates embroidery thread, reducing tension and stress on the top thread – and makes threading the eye of the needle easier. The Blue Tip needle is an excellent choice for buttonholes as well.
Janome Purple Tip Needles
A newer member of the Janome needle family is the Purple Tip. This needle also has a slightly rounded ball point like the Blue Tip, but is a larger needle (size 14) with a special cobra-shaped head. That sounds scary, but it simply means there are tiny “wings” just above the eye on either side of the needle that force the fibers of the fabric apart, allowing stitches to form more easily, leading to fewer or no skipped stitches. Janome recommends the Purple Tip needle for high-density embroidery designs as well as thick fabrics like denim and even multiple layers of fabric, such as quilts.
Janome Red Tip Needles
This option is not a ball point needle. It’s a size 14 needle with a sharp point and is an excellent choice for most normal fabrics, especially the popular quilting cottons. Since it is a very strong and durable needle, it works well in most situations where a universal needle is indicated. However, unlike traditional universal needles, the Red Tip needle has a larger eye (like the Blue Tip) so it’s also a good choice for tricky threads like metallic or monofilament. As with the Purple Tip above, the larger Red Tip needle is a good choice for thicker fabrics and multiple layers.
These are handy options for many home décor projects.
Jeans: Has a sharp, strong point for denim, canvas and other tightly woven fabrics.
Leather: Features a chisel point for genuine leather only.
Sharps: Includes a sharper tip, making it good for silks and micro-fibers.
Metallic: if you are topstitching or embellishing with specialty threads, this needle has a larger, polished eye to allow the thread to flow through without fraying and breaking.
For the majority of home décor projects, you’ll want to use a universal-style needle in size 11 to 14, depending on how heavy your fabrics is. This type works well for most woven fabrics, knits and synthetics. Use the notes above on size and design to determine which needle type to switch to if using a sheer or heavy weight fabric. When in doubt, ask your sewing dealer. They really know their needles.
As you become more advanced, you can investigate other unique needle options, like stretch, twin, triple and wing. We’re fans of the twin needle (also called a double needle), and have an article on its use.
Your needle is a very important part of your project. Think of it this way: a good needle in your sewing room is like a good knife in your kitchen!

Sewing Basics – Know Your Needles – Janome
No matter how advanced or sophisticated sewing machines have become, the basic operation of a sewing machine stays pretty much the same: the needle does the work – pulling top thread to meet the bobbin thread to form a stitch.
Because it’s so small and largely unnoticeable, sometimes it’s easy to overlook the importance of your sewing needle. What many people don’t realise however, is that the needle has a tremendous impact on your project. Not only does it affect how you stitch, it also affects the overall look and quality of your work.
Think of it this way: a good needle in your sewing room is like a good knife in your kitchen!
You probably already know this: the average sewing life of a needle is 8 hours. When a needle is piercing your fabric at 600 to 1,600 stitches per minute, that is TEN times per second at 600 SPM. Small things like a blunt point or an eye that’s beginning to wear, can make a big difference in the quality of your stitches. A good rule of thumb is to use a new needle at the start of every project, ensuring less issues and great sewing results.
Additionally, using the correct Janome needle for the fabric you are sewing will help you achieve optimum stitch results from your sewing machine. Today we’ll take a closer look at the different sizes and types of Janome needles available.
For starters, let’s get to know your way around a needle.
1. Needle Anatomy
All sewing needles have essentially the same parts:
Shank: The upper end of the needle, which is inserted into the machine. On the vast majority of domestic needles, the back of the shank is flat to make it easier to correctly insert them. (Round = Front | Flat = Back)
Shaft: The body of the needle below the shank. The size of the needle is determined by the diameter of the shaft. The smaller the number, the smaller the shaft will be. The eye will increase in size proportionately to the size of the shaft.
Front Groove: This groove, located on the front of the shaft, is designed to allow the thread to lie tightly against the needle as it passes through the fabric
Scarf: The short indentation above the eye at the rear of the needle. It allows the hook to catch the thread loop, made by the needle, to form the stitch. Janome speciality needles are designed to have a longer, deeper scarf to help eliminate skipped stitches.
Eye: You know what this is – the hole at the bottom of the needle through which the thread passes. Janome needles have especially smooth eye holes to keep thread feeding smooth and to avoid snagging.
And finally the Point penetrates the fabric, allowing the needle to deliver the thread to the hook to form the stitch. There are different Points designed to penetrate different types of fabric.
2. Needle Sizes
Sewing machine needles come in an assortment of sizes designed for optimal sewing on different weights of fabric. Quite simply, the finer the fabric the finer the needle; the heavier the fabric the heavier the needle.
For example, if you are going to sew a sheer window curtain, you would want a fine needle such as size 9 or 11 to penetrate the light weight fabric. Using size 16 needle would leave giant holes in your fabric. With heavier home décor fabric such as wool and velvet, a larger size needle would offer extra strength and be less likely to cause stitching issues.
Tip: Keep an assortment of needles on hand to make it easy to choose the appropriate needle for each project.
3. Needle Types
Traditionally when fabrics were only made of natural fibres, changing to specialty needles wasn’t that critical. With the large variety of synthetic fabric on the market today, knowing your fibre content, weave and weight of the fabric are all considerations when choosing the right needle for your machine.
Janome Universal Needles also known as Regular Sharp Needles are used for general sewing of most woven fabrics. This includes chiffon, linen and wool.
Janome Ballpoint Needles have a rounded point and can slip between the yarns to prevent damage to knitted or stretch fabrics such as jersey and fleecy fabric. Janome Ballpoint needles also have a special scarf to eliminate skipped stitches on these types of stretchy fabrics.
Blue Tip Needles are one of our most popular needles for machine embroidery and light to medium weight stretch fabrics. Blue Tip needles have a ballpoint tip, so that when stitching with light fabrics like organza, there is less tendency for both the fabric fibres and embroidery stitches to break down.
Red Tip Needles are size 14 needles with a ballpoint, with added strength and durability. Made for stitching dense embroidery designs and when using metallic embroidery threads. The larger eye allows metallic threads to flow through without catching and breaking.
Top Stitch Needles are size 14 needles with a sharp point, with added strength and durability. The larger eye on this needle accomodates for the heavier weight top stitching threads.
Other specialised needle types:
Denim: Has a very sharp acute point and a stronger shaft for denim, canvas and other tightly woven fabrics. Its eye also accommodates denim thread, being thicker than standard sewing thread.
Leather: Features a 3-sided chisel point which cuts clean through leather. It can also be used on vinyl, suede and rubber backed fabrics.
Purple Tip: Purple Tip needles have a special shaped cobra head with a ballpoint tip. This head design allows the stitch to be properly formed, when stitching knit and tricot fabric, ordinary sewing, free motion quilting and when embroidering. The Purple Tip needle is also designed to help prevent skipped stitches when stitching on these types of fabrics, or when embroidering.
Janome also offers a range of high quality specialty Organ needles that perfectly complement our sewing machines. Click here to find out more.
When it comes to accessories for sewing and stitching, few tools are as important and functional as the sewing needle. Make sure to ask your Janome dealer about genuine Janome Sewing Needles the next time you pop into a Janome store.

True and False Answers
SCHMETZ needles work with all home sewing machines.
TRUE. SCHMETZ home sewing needles work with all major sewing machine brands – Baby Lock, Brother, Elna, Janome, Husqvarna Viking, New Home, Pfaff, Singer, White. Home sewing machines use needle system 130/705.
SCHMETZ needles will last forever.
FALSE. A needle will not last forever. Needles dull from use. The finishes and dyes from some fabrics may hasten needles to dull quickly. Certainly if you sew over pins, little burrs on the needle will develop that may snag or damage threads and fabric. Change your needle! It’s the easiest way to improve your stitch quality.
The Universal Needle is the most versatile needle.
TRUE. This needle is a work horse. The Universal needle works well on woven and knit fabrics. With a Universal needle you can hem a pair of jeans, sew a knit t-shirt and repair lingerie. Your results will be very good. However as your sewing skills develop, you may become more critical and find that other needle types will create even better results.
80/12 is the most popular needle size.
TRUE. Size 80/12 is not too large and not too thin. Use the 80/12 as a bench mark. If a more precise stitch is required, then try a smaller needle such as 75/11 or 70/10 depending on your thread and the needle type. If you are using a heavier thread, then a thicker needle is required. Try a 100/16 or 110/18.
Needle size increases as the needle width increases.
TRUE. Needle size increases as the needle blade gets larger. A size 70/10 will be a smaller, finer needle than a size 110/18.
Sewing is fun!
TRUE. Playing with different fabrics, patterns and colors is fun. Create textures and usual embellishments by using different needle types. And if you have to rip out a sewing mistake, don’t worry. We are all masters of ripping seams, it is just part of the process. Have fun! Sew a gift for a friend. Sew a collar for your cat or dog! Sew an outfit for yourself. Expand your creative world with sewing!

How to Choose the Right Sewing Machine Needle | Sewing Tips, Tutorials, Projects and Events
Using the wrong type of sewing machine needle is one of the most common mistakes we come across at Sew Essential. It can lead to needle breakage, difficulty working with the chosen fabric and poor stitch quality. You’ll never have to experience these problems with our sewing machine needle guide! We’ve outlined the different types of needles available and the fabrics and threads they should be used with. Even if you’re a confident stitcher and are in the know about needles its worth having a quick read. You might just surprise yourself and discover a life-changing needle you never knew existed!
Sewing Machine Needle Types
The first thing to know is that sewing machines needles are standardised. They are compatible across the range of brands, including Janome, Brother, Husqvarna, Elna, Pfaff etc. You can be safe in the knowledge that any sewing machine needle purchased from us will be compatible with any relatively modern domestic sewing machine.
The number of different types and sizes of machine needle can seem a bit bewildering at first. However, it’s not that difficult to get a handle on the different types. We’ve listed the most popular needles and the techniques and fabrics they’re used for.
As the name suggests, universal needles are the most commonly used needle. They can be used with woven fabrics, synthetics and some knit fabrics, although check the other needle types outlined below for specific types of knit fabric. The finer needles are mostly used for lightweight fabrics. Larger sizes are used on medium to heavyweight fabrics. Polyester / cotton or silk threads should be used with a universal needle.
Ball point needles
Ball point needles have a more rounded tip than a universal needle which pushes the fabric fibres apart rather than cutting them. This makes ball point needles ideal for working with rib knits, interlock, cotton knits, fleece, double knit and generally most knit fabrics because it prevents them from running or laddering as a result of stitching. Polyester and polyester / cotton blend threads are best for use with ball point needles and finer threads should be used for finer needles.
A stretch needle has what is called a ‘scarf’ which allows extra room for the hook to pass close by and prevents skipped stitches making it ideal for use with fabrics such as Lycra, power net, two way stretch knits, silk jersey, spandex and highly elasticated synthetic fabrics or indeed elastic itself. Polyester or cotton wrapped polyester threads should be used. Stretch fabrics are renowned for being more difficult to work with and choosing the right needle is crucial to achieving a good end result.
If you’re a quilter working with several layers of cotton and wadding or you’re working with densely woven fabrics such as silk and micro fibre a sharps needle should be used. These needles are designed to work with several layers of fabric thanks to a stronger shaft which helps to avoid bent or broken needles and a sharp point which enables it to penetrate through the fabric and produce smooth buttonholes. A short round threading eye also gives extra strength during sewing.
Quilting needles are also designed to be used with several layers of fabric and wadding thanks to a reinforced shaft, however, they are much shorter in length than the sharps needle to allow quilters to achieve quick and even stitching. Beginners will most likely find a smaller needle such as a size 7 or 8 easier to use whilst more experienced quilters often choose a larger option.
No prizes for guessing which fabric these needles are designed for! Yes, denim is the most obvious choice, but these needles are also best for other densely woven fabrics such as heavy twill, canvas and heavy linens often used for workwear. Whereas stretch and ball point needles are designed not to cut the fabric jeans needles have a very sharp point and a stronger shank to prevent needle bending or breakage and push through the heavy fabric. Threads such as synthetic or blends, 100% polyester, heavier top stitching threads and cotton wrapped polyester should be chosen when working with these needles and fabrics.
Leather needles are often known as chisel point needles thanks to a point that looks and acts like a chisel when in use. Yes, you’ve guessed it, these needles should be used with genuine leather, suede and difficult to sew projects, but should not be used with PU imitation leather, ultra suede or synthetic suede since the characteristics of these fabrics are quite different to their real counterparts.
If you’re a bit of a magpie when it comes to thread and love a pretty metallic or rayon, a metafil needle is ideal when sewing or embroidering on woven or knitted fabrics. Metallic needles have an extra large eye meaning these fancy threads feed through more freely and won’t shred or split as a result of the sewing motion. If you ever struggle to thread your needle a metallic needle would be a good buy because it is also appropriate for general sewing and is much easier to thread due to the larger eye.
Embroidery needles are designed with a wider eye to allow threads such as rayon, polyester or cotton machine embroidery threads to pass freely and easily when embroidering. Missed stitches can often occur when machine embroidering thanks to the fabric flexing up and down rapidly as a result of the fast moving embroidery stitch. Embroidery needles have a pontoon scarf with an oversize bump which reduces the chance of this happening by reducing the amount of movement in the fabric.
Top stitch needles
Top stitch needles have an extra sharp point which will pierce all types of fabric easily and the large eye allows thick top stitching thread to be used.
Twin needles and triple needles
These needles are used for pin tucking and decorative stitches and need to be used at a reduced speed. They are not compatible with all machines so always check your manual before using.
Used in conjunction with the special stitch options on your machine, wing needles will produce holes in the fabric to replicate drawn thread work. Fabrics made from natural fibres such as cotton should be used with these needles.

What Do the Size Numbers Mean on Sewing Machine Needles?
You may be wondering what the size number such as 80/12 or 110/18 on sewing machine needles mean. Well, wonder no more! Of the two numbers, one is the European size and one is the American size. From thinnest to thickest, the European sizes range from 60 to 110, whereas the American sizes range from 8 to 18. Pretty simple, eh?
Generally, a 80/12 needle is used for dressmaking (and will probably be the size of needle you received with your sewing machine) but please refer to the quick reference table above for information on which needle sizes to use with particular threads, fabric types and fabric weights.
How Often Should I Change My Needle?
We generally recommend changing your needle after every project. Needle are pretty cheap, so it’s not going to break the bank and you have the assurance that your needle will always perform as expected.
We also recommend giving the needle a good visual inspection if you machine has jammed. Jamming can result in the needle bending, which can lead to unexpected results such as poor stitch quality. If your machine is making an unusual thumping sound as the needle penetrates the fabric, then you definitely need to change the needle.
Fitting a New Needle
To fit a new needle the first thing we recommend is to pop a piece of paper under the foot. Then, when loosening the needle screw, there is no danger of the old needle dropping inside the machine. We don’t want any expensive repair bills! Once the old needle is out, the new needle will only fit in the correct orientation due to the shank design. The flat side of the shank should face towards the rear of the sewing machine.
Make sure you push the new needle up as far as it will go before tightening the needle screw. If you don’t you may get poor stitch quality, the needle could strike the bobbin case or your needle threader could be damaged (if your machine has one).
Anatomy of a Sewing Machine Needle
To finish off this article, lets get geeky and look at the various parts of the sewing machine needle.
Eye – The hole in which the thread slides through. Good quality needles have a smoothly machined eye to minimise thread shredding. The eye size varies according to the intended thread type.
Shaft – The shaft varies in thickness according to the intended fabric – thicker materials require a stiffer shaft.
Shank – The part goes into the machine. Has a flat side to prevent incorrect insertion.
Point – The point shape varies widely between different needle types, from ball point for knit fabrics to chisel shaped for leather.
Scarf – Enables the hook to get close to the eye of the needle to avoid skipped stitches.
So there you have it, a run down of the movers and shakers of the needle world, their uses, recommended sizes, fabrics and threads. If you have any requests for a particular sewing guide or tutorial please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Watch this space for more in-depth articles from Sew Essential.
Types of sewing machine needles
Let’s consider the structure of the needle.
Shank is the top of the needle that fits into the needle holder on the sewing machine. The front of the shank is rounded and the back is flat. Your sewing machine manual should tell you how to insert and secure the needle correctly.
Shaft – The rest of the needle that starts at the base of the shank and ends at the point. The thickness of the needle is determined by the diameter of the shaft.
Groove – or groove – a recess located on the front of the needle. It serves to protect the thread as the needle passes through the fabric.
Notch – Cut next to the eyelet on the back of the needle. Allows the bobbin hook to grasp the bobbin thread smoothly.
Eyelet – hole in the lower part of the rod. Someone calls him a peephole. The thread runs from the front of the needle to the back through this hole. Choose a needle with the appropriate eyelet so that the thread can pass freely through the hole.
Point – the tip of the needle that penetrates the tissue.
There are European and American systems for measuring sewing machine needles. The size of the needle is determined by the thickness of the rod.
|60||8||12||Very fine synthetics, cotton|
|70||10||12,15,23||Chiffon & Nylon|
|75||11||12,15,23||Veil, chiffon, organza|
|80||12||23.30||Cotton, silk, jersey, taffeta|
|90||14||23.30.46||Poplin, chintz, velvet|
|100||16||30.46.69||Cords, jeans, gabardine, tight suits|
|110||18||46.69||Tight jeans and leather|
|120||20||69.92||Very thick and dense materials|
Needle size designation
Needles are also classified by point type.It can be either rounded or pointed. According to this parameter, you must first select a needle, and only then select its thickness and thread thickness.
Universal [K0]. Ideal for woven fabrics as well as most synthetic fabrics. All-purpose needles have a slight rounding point, making them suitable for most fabrics. Available sizes: 60/8, 70/10, 80/12, 90/14, 100/16, 110/18, 120/20.
Rounded point [K1].Or ballpoint. Ideal for knitwear, knitted fabrics, fleece, suede. The round tip pushes the fibers of the material apart, rather than sticking directly into the fibers as a sharp needle does. Available sizes: 70/10, 80/12, 90/14, 100/16
Stretch [K2]. Ideal for stretch fabrics and knitwear, especially those containing lycra. Used when sewing swimwear and underwear. Stretch needles have a specially designed notch near the eyelet to prevent skipped stitches.Available sizes: 75/11, 90/14.
Jeans needles [K3]. Ideal for denim, canvas and other tightly woven fabrics. Their strong point is their excellent penetrating ability. Available in sizes 80/12, 90/14, 100/16, 110/18.
Types of needles
Leather needles [K4]. Ideal for natural leather. The point is sharpened like the spear of Spartacus. Any sizes are available.
Microfiber needles [K5]. Ideal for silk and microfibers – heavy, delicate fabrics.This is because they are designed for perfect straight stitching and buttonhole topstitching. Available sizes: 60/8, 70/10, 80/12, 90/14.
Quilting needles [K6]. They have a long tapered point and usually a small eyelet, which allows them to pass through the multiple intersecting seams and layered sections that are obtained on quilting projects.
Embroidery needles [K7]. They have a specially enlarged eye for embroidery threads.Thanks to this eyelet, weak embroidery threads do not break when sewing.
Needles for metal threads [K8]. They have a special nickel-plated durable eye for the passage of metal threads at high speed, as well as an enlarged groove (groove) so that metal threads used for decorative purposes do not bend or break much.
Topstitch needles [K9]. They have a larger eye and a deeper groove (groove). They can be used to sew with double thread for a more expressive stitching.
Twin needles . Ideal for decorative stitching. The sizes 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm and 6mm indicate the distance between the needles. They are universal, ball, stretch, for jeans, embroidery and for metallic threads.
Triple needles are also used in decorative stitches, but unlike twin needles, they are only of the universal type.
Twin and triple needles are fixed in a nylon block and should therefore be used at slower speeds and not for long periods.
Wide ribbed needles can also be double. They are used for openwork embroidery when large holes are required for the threads to pass through.
Needle with a slit in the eye . It happens only with a universal point, it is easy to thread a thread into it, but such a needle is not as strong as needles with a conventional eyelet design.
Recommendation for the selection of needles
Sewing machine needles are divided into household and industrial and do not replace each other.This article will focus on household sewing machine needles. They are not suitable for overlocks.
The assortment of needles is very large: different manufacturers, different purposes. Let’s try to understand the avalanche of information using the example of Schmetz needles.
For the vast majority of household sewing machines, the 130/705 H needle system is used.
The needle has a number, it is selected depending on the type and thickness of the fabric.
Each package of needles has a name indicating what type of work the needle is intended for.
On a package of twin needles, the first number is the distance between the needles, the second is the number of the needle.
Information on the packaging and on the box with needles is duplicated. Some needles are color-coded on the bulb to avoid confusion with others.
Thread, Needle and Fabric Ratio Table
Each needle is designed for a specific type and thickness of fabric. The thicker the fabric, the larger the needle number.
|Light|| Crepe de Chine, veil.
Baptiste, fine muslin,
crepe georgette, tights
| Thin silk,
Thin cotton / polyester
|9 (65) or 11 (75)|
|Medium|| Linen, cotton, pique.
Knitwear, percale, twill
| Silk # 50,

Household sewing machine needles
Universal needle – designed for sewing fabrics and knitwear.Used in all types of household sewing machines.
MICROTEX / SHARP – microfiber sewing needle.
Needles for knitted and elastic fabrics
JERSEY (jersey) – knitted jersey needle. It has a rounded (ball) point, which spreads the threads of the canvas, and does not pierce them.
STRETCH (stretch) – a needle for sewing elastic and highly elastic fabrics with a medium ball point. The special design of the eye of the needle and the notch in the shank eliminates skipped stitches.
For particularly elastic fabrics use STRETCH SP needles.
JEANS (jeans) – a needle for sewing denim fabrics. Needles No. 100/16 and above have a medium ball point, due to which the needle can easily penetrate through strong thick materials, excluding their damage. The reinforced shank causes slight needle deflection and reduces the risk of needle breakage and skipped stitches.
TOPSTITCH – stitching needle. The eye of the needle is extra long – 2 mm for all needle thicknesses, which makes it easier to thread thick or multiple threads. It is also used for decorative work and embroidery. For embroidery, you can use needles with two eyes, which gives a very interesting effect when sewing with threads of two different colors.
STEPP – NADEL QUILTING NEEDLE – quilting and quilting needle. Has a special taper that protects sensitive and expensive materials from damage.
METALLIC NEEDLES – sewing needle for metallic threads. It has a particularly long needle eye – 2 mm, which makes it easier to thread.
Needle with “wings” – has wings on both sides of the needle, used for embroidery with decorative stitches. Thanks to the “wings”, holes visible to the eye remain in the fabric.
Needle with a spring – used for embroidery in free-motion technique (with the foot removed and with the lower and upper feeds turned off).
Twin and triple needles
The use of these needles is quite large: for hemming in elastic products, decorative and embroidery work, double stitching seams in one pass (in denim seams), etc.
The distance between the needles is different. Twin needles are classified into denim, metallic, stretch, etc.e. See the name on the package and select a needle for a specific application.
LEDER LEATHER – for sewing leather. The needles differ from the others in that they have a special groove on the needle shaft, a sharp knife-like point and a reinforced shaft.
Sewing leather with other needles is not recommended, there will be skipping stitches, uneven stitching, a simple needle will break at the thickenings.
Easy threaded needle
HANDICAP is a universal needle with a small slit on the side of the eyelet, into which the threaded thread slips.Designed for easy insertion of sewing thread into the eye of the needle.
Sewing needle setting
Correctly install the new needle (for machines with front threading):
Lower the presser foot.
Recommendations for the use of needles
Change the needle in time. Do not use a needle if it is bent, even “just a little”, with notches, with a blunt point. Change needles after every 10-12 hours of sewing or after two pieces of sewn. Often the cause of thread breakage is a needle with a notch in the eyelet, as well as the wrong type of fabric.
The thicker the fabric, the larger the needle number. When sewing stretch fabrics, denims, silk fabrics, try to use the correct needle. Also remember to select the sewing thread according to the needle number and fabric you choose. Thin threads and needles are generally used for sewing fine fabrics, and thicker needles and threads for sewing heavier fabrics. The upper and bobbin threads should be the same if this is just sewing and not decor or embroidery.
Not so long ago, Schmetz introduced a new classification for color coding of needles – double.Whether it is convenient or not, we will be able to evaluate only in the process, but needles with double marking have already appeared on the shelves of our stores.
You can buy fabrics and accessories in the Sezon online store. The selection is unusually large – more than 6,000 items. The prices will pleasantly surprise you – they are lower than in a real store. By clicking on the preview with the sample, you will be taken to the desired section of the store.
