Schmetz Embroidery and Quilting Needles

Schmetz Emboridery Needles We've used a lot of different embroidery needles, and we think Schmetz needles are the best quality available to the home embroiderer today. We've found that they last longer and don't break nearly as often as some other brands we've tried. Quilters love Schmetz quilting needles for the same reasons - reliability and endurance.

These needles are the "flat shank" variety which work in nearly all home embroidery machines -- if your current needle has a long flat side, these needles should work in your machine. Consult your owner's manual if you're unsure.


Schmetz Embroidery Needles

An excellent needle for machine embroidery with all polyester and rayon embroidery threads. This should be the only needle you require for nearly all your embroidering!

Schmetz Embroidery Needles

These needles have a special scarf (the groove in the back) and a somewhat larger eye than regular needles, both of which help to prevent thread breakage when used at high speed in home embroidery machines.

Size 75/11 is suitable for most embroidery on light to medium weight fabrics; use a larger size 90/14 needle when sewing heavier fabrics such as a heavy knit or fleece. If you're embroidering with metallic thread, we recommend the Schmetz Metallica needle (see below.)

Available in sizes 75/11, 90/14 or as an assortment which contains 3 size 75/11 and 2 size 90/14.

5 needles per package.
