Needles as you know should be changed every four to six hours of stitching, but that is not the case with if you a Titanium-coated needle. These new titanium-coated needles have an ultra thin coat of titanium nitride layered on the surface to extend their productive life by five to eight times that of conventional needles. Imagine having a needle that will last 40 to 60 hours. This is equivalent to saving 80% on the cost of needles.
Can be used on home machine and long arms.
Here are two needles that I would recommend for piecing and quilting.
The quilting needle has a tapered point for stitching through multiple layers and across seams. The shape of the point minimizes damage to the quilting fabric.
The topstitch needle has an extra large eye and a much deeper groove for use with either heavier fabrics and/or heavier threads. It can even accommodate doubling of threads for more pronounced stitching.
Until next time,
