Selecting Sewing Needles

9 Jan

Have you ever tried to hem a pair of jeans only to have trouble getting your machine to go over those thick seams, or sewing with metallic thread and it keeps breaking as you sew creating a huge mess instead of that pretty shimmer you were looking for.  Well maybe you are using the wrong sewing needle in your machine.  Yes it can make a big difference.  I was a disbeliever for many years until I put a denim needle in my machine, it went right over those thick seams.  So today I have a tutorial on which needle does what from Quilt Bug and a PDF chart from sewing.org.  To keep your needles organized here are some ideas from The Domestic Diva.
