Quality needles for quilting and patchwork
Why should you use a quilting needle? It has features that other sewing machine needles don’t have. When sewing fabrics together in quilting and patchworking, you mainly have three or more layers which are sewn on top of each other. The thicker the fabric under the sewing machine, the greater the probability that a universal needle will bend or even break.
On the other hand, quilting and patchwork needles are made from extremely stable material and are therefore more resistant. These sewing tools have a thinner appearance so that they can get through the fabric and fleece layers more easily. The particularly fine tip ensures neat, even seams.
Depending on the thickness of your fabric, you can use an appropriate needle in your sewing machine. At W6 you will find quilting needles in sizes 75 to 90. In general, we can say: the thicker the fabric, the greater the size of the needle.
When using a special needle for quilting and patchwork, you will save valuable time thanks to the smooth sewing process. And you will conjure up beautiful craftwork of an excellent quality. Because hardly anything displays nearly as much creativity and personality as a quilt or patchwork cushion. They are also a great idea as a loving gift for your family or friends.
Quilting and patchwork with stretch fabrics
Have you found a fabric that inspires you to do great things, but found out that it’s an elastic material? This isn’t a problem either. Thanks to the super stretch HAx1SP needle, you can create fascinating artworks using this fabric. Needles for elastic fabrics such as jersey or stretch fabrics have a rounded tip. This allows the needle to move the fabric fibres aside without piercing them. This prevents nasty holes in your fabric from the outset.
If your selected fabric tends to crimp, even though you have all the right settings, place stabiliser or water-soluble stabiliser under the fabric. The stabiliser gives the stretchy fabric more stability and it keeps its shape.
