Schmetz Sewing Machine Needles – Stretch #90/14
Schmetz is a world leader in the sewing machine needle industry, and has been manufacturing needles in Germany since 1851.
Stretch needles have a medium ball point, a special eye and scarf, specially designed to prevent skipped stitches. The needles work well with highly elastic knitwear. Spend time testing different sized needles before embarking on a new project.
Replacing your machine needle with a quality Schmetz needle, of the correct type and size, is the easiest way to improve stitch quality. Poor quality machine needles, or damaged or overused needles, result in
- Threads breaking or threading
- Skipped or uneven stitches
- Puckered or damaged fabric
- Popping sounds made as the needle punctures the fabric.
