Quilting Needle Characteristics:

  • Want to do free motion quilting? Yes, I can! This needle is made especially for piecing and quilting several layers of cotton fabrics and batting with ease.
  • Available in sizes 75/11 and 90/14.
  • Works superbly on modern sewing machines such as Babylock, Bernina, Bernette, Brother, Elna, Viking, Janome, Kenmore, Pfaff, Singer and more.
  • Designed with an extra strong blade/shaft and a tapered point to penetrate multiple layers of woven fabrics without breaking/fraying the thread of the fabric being sewn.
  • Caution: Not suitable for Industrial Machines because they require needles with a round shank.

Top 10 Sewing Tips:

Tip 1: Needle

  • Always use Beissel 130-705 HE Quilting needle for free motion quilting. For long arm quilting, use 130-705 H E Round Shank.
  • Home sewing needles run at speeds up to 750 stitches per minute and even that in most cases sewing is intermittent. So, they are nickel plated which has served well.
  • Chrome is harmful to environment because of the effluent the plating generates. Chrome plated needles for regular home sewing is best avoided.

Tip 2: Needle

  • The needle point is likely to become dull after about 8 hours of sewing. It will begin to make a bigger hole and a “punching sound” making the machine work harder.
  • A needle is the least expensive item in your project. Do not wait for the needle to break. Change to a nice fresh needle after 8 hours of sewing (or) when starting a new project. Your sewing machine will work as it is new!

Tip 3: Needle

  • Needle available in sizes 75/11 and 90/14.
  • Choose the right size depending upon thickness of cloth being quilted

Tip 4: Thread

  • Use cotton thread because there are plenty of stitches in a quilt and the thread will touch the body especially in quilts for babies.

Tip 5: Sewing Habit

  • Use seam allowance 1/4” while joining the pieces and not 5/8” frequently used in garments. This will give uniform sizing of quilt.

Tip 6: Fabric

  • Press your seam fabrics before beginning the project. Ensure there are no wrinkles in the fabric.

Tip 7: Fabric

  • Stick to one type of fabric, preferably 100% cotton.

Tip 8: Fabric

  • Do not use thin fabrics for quilting. They will go out of shape too soon

Tip 9: Sewing Habit

  • Remember to backstitch. Only then 4th stitch will not unravel.

Tip 10: Sewing Style

  • Press your quilt blocks as you make them. Properly pressed quilt blocks fit nicely together and is worth the extra time it needs. Use Binder foot to tidy up edges.
