What Are Sewing Machine Needles Used For?

Sewing machine needles are specially designed to be used in a sewing machine, and are different to the needles used for hand sewing. Needles for sewing machines can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and what needle is best for your project will depend on the fabric you are working with. Thicker fabrics will need larger needles, while more delicate fabrics are best paired with a smaller needle. If you're wondering how to identify sewing machine needles, the size of the sewing machine needle can be found on the packaging, and refers to the diameter of the needle above the eye - a larger number denotes a large needle.

What Kinds Of Sewing Machine Needles Can I Find At Spotlight?

You can find all the most popular kinds of needles for sewing machines here at Spotlight - here are some of the varieties we offer:

  • Overlocker needle - if you have an overlocker, make sure to use it with the correct overlocker needles so your stitches come out properly.
  • Quilting needle - these slim, strong needles are designed to stitch through multiple layers and across seams.
  • Leather needle - these needles have a tip shaped like a spear that helps punch through the thick and strong surface of your leather.
  • Silk needle - needles for silk will be thin and have a very pointed tip to cleanly pass through the silk without creating an obvious hole or damaging the material.
  • Universal needle - universal sewing machine needles are great to have on hand and are very versatile, perfect for use with knit and woven fabrics.
  • Twin needle - create two rows of stitches simultaneously with a versatile twin needle. Great for decorative sewing.

Your sewing machine needles can dull over time and so they will need to be replaced, otherwise they may damage your material and they won't be able to grab the thread from your machine properly.
