Machine Fridays - Titanium Needles

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.  



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.

Topstitch
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,
