I had always thought that topstitch needles were extra large and used for heavy threads – you know – for topstitching. I couldn’t have been more wrong. A topstitch needles almost looks the same as a regular needle but the parts that make a good needle have been made even better. While these needles have been available for industrial and longarm quilting machines they were not available for the home market. Superior Threads has now teamed up with Organ Needle Company to make Superior Titanium coated Topstitch needles for the home sewing machine. I tried, I liked and I now carry them in my store!
The groove in these needles is wider and deeper and that allows the thread to tuck inside out of the way while the stitch is being made – less chance of the thread fraying. The elongated oversized eye makes threading the needle a breeze and because of extra coating of titanium applied to the needle they will stay sharp 5 to 8 times longer than a regular sewing machine needle.
They are available in sizes 80/12, 90/14 and 100/16 to suit all of your sewing, embroidery and quilting needs. Many thread issues can be solved by using the right needle and now the home sewer can have the right needle too!
I’m giving away 1 package of needles to 3 different readers that leave a comment on either why they like these needles or the reason(s) they think they had better try them! Leave a comment below before June 15, 2010 and I will make a random drawing and pop them into the mail once I have the winners mailing address.
