Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles
Quilting - size 90/14
Pack of 5
Schmetz needles are amongst the finest engineered sewing machine needles in the world.
Schmetz Quilting Needles are designed for quilting through the two layers of fabric and layer of wadding that make up a quilt. The needle's longer tip helps to create balanced tension between top and bobbin threads and helps stitches lock in the middle of the wadding rather than pulling to either the top or the bottom of the quilt. The point is very sharp, which helps to cope with woven fabrics.
These needles are perfect for decorative weight cotton or cotton blend quilting threads which are a little heavier than standard weight. The groove on this needle will fit most threads labelled 40-weight or similar.
This pack contains five (5) needles. Always use a new sharp needle for quilting.
If you experience skipped stitches when using this needle, you might be using the wrong size needle for your thread. Try changing to a size 100/16 Quilting or perhaps a 90/14 Embroidery needle which will give you a slightly larger eye and larger groove.
