The Best Sewing Needle For Satin

The best sewing needle for satin

A standard needle should be fine to use on satin cloth. I personally prefer a slightly smaller needle and find the results to be better. Avoid large, heavy-duty needles because they pierce large holes in satin and avoid very fine pointed needles because they are more likely to develop barbs.

How to tell the difference between sewing needles

Larger needles have a smaller number while smaller needles have a higher number. Example, a size 18 needle is thicker and longer than a size 24, which is shorter. To discover which you like best try a variety of brands, types, and sizes until you find one you are most comfortable using.

What a 90 14 needle is used for

90/14 needles are suitable for medium weight fabrics, slightly heavier weight cotton, polyester, linen and lightweight upholstery fabric. Lighter weight fabrics such as silk require a smaller sized needle. The lighter the fabric, the smaller the needle required.

The best universal sewing needle size

The slightly rounded points of the best universal needles are sharp enough to pierce woven cotton fabrics but not so sharp as to damage knits. They come in sizes ranging from 60/8 to 120/19, however, a good starting point is the 80/12 size. To save money look for assorted needle packs that include two or three different needle sizes.

When to replace sewing machine needles

We recommend replacing old needles at the start of every project, or after every eight hours of sewing. Change your needles when they becomes bent, dull or develop a burr because damaged needles result in broken or shredded threads.

What 90 100 topstitch needles can do

The topstitch needle is a favorite needle on many home sewing machines. The 90 100 topstitch needle is for quilting, piecing, sewing, and embroidery. A thin layer of embeded titanium nitride makes topstitch needles last up to six times longer than standard needles because they resist abrasion.

Best sewing needles to use with silk

Typically, silk fabric, and other lightweight fabrics, require a smaller needle such as a 60/8, 70/10 or 80/12. 70/10 needles work well with your fine silk and chiffon while 80/12 needles are best for medium weight silk.

Choosing the best needle for free motion quilting

For free motion sewing machine quilting choose the needle size that best suits the weight of your thread. As a general rule 40 wt thread requires a size 75 needle. Unless you are piecing together extra thick padding a small to medium sized needle that is sharp to slightly rounded will work fine.

What 70 10 sewing needles are for

70 10 sewing needles have a slightly rounded point and are best for projects with woven fabric and knits. 70 10 needles are excellent all purpose needles that works with any household sewing machine brand. Brocade, fleece, thin leather and velvet also work well with 70 10 needles.

What the numbers on sewing machine needles mean

The numbers assigned to sewing machine needles represent the fabric thickness they are able to sew. Larger numbers are capable of sewing thicker fabric. Conversely, smaller numbers are for sewing lighter weight fabrics. Care must be taken to match needle size with project material for best results.
