Warning :
Do Not begin sewing
without spare machine needles

find out why...

How many times have you been in the middle of a project and your trusted sewing machine has decided it doesn't want to sew ? 

Because the fun part of sewing is *actually* sewing - NOT fighting your machine and trying to identify the cause of problems.

Surprisingly, the most common problems are instantly solved - just by putting in a fresh needle (or using the right type)!

" I used to have issues with uneven stitches, and always assuemed it was my machine. Turned out that a fresh neele was all I needed!

I never realised what a difference a sharp, new needles could make in a sewing project. These worked perfectly with my basic little Janome JR1012.

It's nice to always have new needles in a variety of sizes and types on hand. I can't believe how much I'm enjoying sewing now!"

- Kylie, a Happy Customer

Would you believe....

The Secret of snag-free Sewing is a sharp NEW Needle by Schmetz.

Hey, it's the simplest trick. But it WILL make a huge difference.

Maybe You Don't Need a New Machine...
Grab Some New Needles & See the Difference Now.

Did You Know.....

The most likely cause for you machine to skip or uneven stitches is the machine needle .

Because damaged or worn needles can result in:

  • Broken or Shredded Threads
  • Skipped or Uneven Stitches
  • Puckered or Damaged Fabrics
  • Popping sound made by the sewing machine.

If your machine was sewing fine and suddenly decides to do something weird, change your sewing machine needle.

Best Practice

Get into the habit of using a new needle at the start of each project. Also, change your needles after 8 to 10 hours of sewing.

When Was Your Last Needle Change?
You'd Probably Need To Do It Now.

Why Not Give Them a Go...

"I purchased these needles after speaking with a certified sewing machine repair mechanic.

He says Schmetz makes the best needles, and having a decent choice available for any project you might want to start is like always having the right tool on hand in your garage.

So I took his advice and bought these. I love them.

They are sharp and smooth and don't break easily. I like the variety pack. Getting them in bulk works out better vlaue than running down to the shops each time I run out. Awesome!"

- Judy, a Happy Customer

What do the needle sizes mean?

All the numbers associated with sewing machine needles can stop you in your tracks.

It seems confusing because they are using a European and American labeling system.
It's actually a simple labeling system:
  • The American system uses 8 to 20, 8 being a fine needle and 20 being a thick heavy needle.
  • European sizes range from 60 to 120, 60 being a fine needle and 120 being a thick heavy needle.

You may find a needle size listed as 90/14 or 14/90. The order of the numbers does not effect the size. Remember, needle size is listed in both European (metric) and American (imperial). The order in which they appear is not important.

For Best Results....

Always test on a scrap of the fabric you intend to use first.

Remember to experiement your thread / needle / fabric combination, and then try different machine settings until you get it perfect.

Taking the time to do this WILL save you time :-)

This is especially important if you have a challenging fabric, or you're unfamiliar with the project.

Because You Want to Avoid Unnecessary Unpicking. Right?

Hate Unpicking?
Start by Having the Right Needles.

Get to know your sewing machine needle....

Will this needle fit MY machine?

Yes! Because Schmetz works with ALL sewing machine brands.

Take a look at the needle on your machine now - does it have a flat side?

If it does, then these needles will definitely fit :-)

Would it Fit Your Machine?
Most Likely - Try 'em on Now.

"Schmetz needles are my go-to needles for my sewing machine.

They fit most any type of machine and they hold up well also. I have tried other needles before, including Singer needles, and they just don't have the quality of schmetz.

This pack has 8 packs in different sizes and types to suit all my projects. I sew a lot, everyday pretty much for my hobby and business - these needles hold up the best.

I also love the color coding that makes it possible to tell the size and type without reading the fine print. "

- Lynn, a Happy Customer

Here's an overview of each needle type, and what they're best for:

Suits most woven fabrics, some knits and synthetics. The Universal Needle has a slight ball point making it extremely versatile. It works well on most machines and is the most commonly used needle for synthetic woven and natural fibres. The finer needles are generally used on lightweight fabrics and the larger sized needles for medium to heavyweight fabrics. Suitable to be used with polyester / cotton or silk threads.

Ideal for piercing and quilting layers of cotton fabrics and batting. A strengthened longer shaft also helps to reduce needle deflections as the needle penetrates multiple layers of fabric while maintaining a perfectly straight stitch If you do free-motion quilting, also known as "stippling", this is the right needle to use.

Ball Point

Ideal for cotton knits, interlock, rib knits, fleece, double knit, and so most knit fabrics. The tip is more rounded that the Universal needle and is designed to push the fabric fibres apart rather than cutting them, preventing the knit fabric laddering or running after stitching. Generally threads such as polyester or polyester/cotton blends are best. Once again the finer the needle the finer the thread to be used.

Designed especially for two way stretch knits, lycra, power net, silk jersey, spandex and highly elasticised synthetic fabrics, also ideal for sewing elastic. The Stretch Needle has a specially designed scarf which prevents skipped stitched. Threads are usually polyester or cotton wrapped polyester and for extra stretch the woolly nylon threads are suitable.

Perfect for top stitching or decorative stitches with rayon and metallic threads on woven or knitted fabrics. The needle have a very large eye, allowing the threads to feed freely as you sew. This needle is also suitable for general purpose sewing, giving the added advantage of being easier to thread due to the enlarged eye.

Jeans / Denim
Ideal for denim fabrics, heavy twill, workwear, and other densely woven fabrics such as canvas and heavy linens. Engineered with a very sharp point and a stiffer shank to resist needle deflection and allow penetration of dense fabric. Threads range from synthetic or blends, cotton wrapped polyester, 100% polyester and heavier topstitching threads.

Large Eye Easy-thread / Embroidery 
Easy to thread and great for everyday sewing - also ideal for sewing and embroidery with rayon and metallic threads on woven or knitted fabrics. The Embroidery Needle has with a very large eye, perfect for emboirdery threads to feed freely as you sew without splitting, burring or shredding.

Just Remember:

The finer the thread, the finer the fabric, the finer your chosen needle has to be :-)

  BONUS Needles Guide

Choosing the correct sewing machine needle –
Easy as 1, 2, 3.

Stitch Quality is dependent on using the correct needle for your thread, fabric and the type of machine sewing you need to do for your project. When the wrong needle is used you may get stitching that puckers, skips or the thread may break.

Consider fabric weight, thickness, weave type (woven or knit), weave density (close weave or loose weave) and composition (natural fibre or synthetic).

Consider matching your thread composition to your fabric (polyester thread for synthetics, cotton for cotton fabrics etc.) and to your sewing purpose (seams, hems, topstitching, quilting, machine embroidery etc.)

After selecting your fabric and thread type the final consideration is the style and size of needle to achieve the best results.

If your project or thread is specialised, choose your needle based on that rather than fabric type e.g. embroidery, quilting and twin needle work have a specific needle while there is a specific thread for topstitching which requires a certain needle.

If your project involves general sewing or overlocking, base your needle choice on the characteristics of the fabric you are sewing with. For instance are you working with woven fabrics (heavy or light denim jeans), leather, or stretch fabric?

When you have chosen the type of needle you must also choose the size (width) of the needle.

See what other people are saying about it...

"I like Schmetz needles better than any I have used and I have been sewing for 50+ years.

These needles are a must when you sew into wee hrs of the night and you break a few needles! I live in a small town and it is becoming harder to find places that sell that sell decent machine needles at all much less Schmetz!

This was a good price for the amount of needles you get. A great package with a very nice selection for all types of sewing project that might takes your fancy. I recommend it."

- Barb, a Happy Customer

"These are my favourite brand of sewing needles. I can use them in my Janome sewing machine, so I like finding such a good price on the multi-size and different types on hand.

I have never gotten a "bad" needle out of a pack of Schmetz. Can't beat German quality control. So I love stocking up when the price is right.

This particular purchase was part of a gift with a sewing machine for a close relative. She was thrilled to be able to open the box and have needles and start sewing without having to run to a local store to look for the correct size needle. For anyone considering giving a sewing machine as a gift, buying this pack of multi-size needles is a thoughtful way to allow the recipient to enjoy their gift right away."

- Louise, a Happy Customer

"Amazing Value and amazing price. I love Schmetz needles.

If you have never treated yourself to Schmetz Needles, you should! I never thought there was a difference but once you use them, you will never go back! Stays sharp, will go thru about anything without breaking, no more skipped stitches, etc.

This is my second time purchasing from this seller. I like the variety providing the most commonly used needles that I can get all in one package. I will continue to purchase as needed.

- Margaret, a Happy Customer

Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.

A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.

Schmetz are indeed the best

By: on 11 October 2020

Hi Shelley Just letting you know that your email about which sewing machine needles are best was really helpful, and I can attest that Schmetz are indeed the best - my machine certainly seems to be happier when I use them. I had an interesting experience not long ago - I used a different brand of needle while using a double overcasting stitch, just to stop fraying. I’d had no problem previously but the machine started to make a weird and rather disconcerting sound, there were missed stitches,(and this was a fresh needle too) and I wondered if there was something wrong with my darling sewing machine. Then I remembered what you wrote about changing the needle if your machine starts to do weird things, funny noises, slipped stitches etc, so I changed the needle to a Schmetz. The difference was quite startling - no slipped/skipped stitches, machine purring, no funny noise, all good. It’s turned me into a confirmed, card carrying Schmetz fan when it comes to machine needles. I will never use anything else. I noticed that the little set of needles that came with my beautiful machine were Organ needles, and when I first used my machine I naturally used these needles and also had trouble with skipped stitches... Hmm. Again, I have had no problems whenever I’ve used Schmetz. When I order needles again, they will be the ones I get every time. Just thought this might be of interest, if it can be used to help someone else please use it. Blessings, Kathy
