Triple Needle Characteristics:
  • Triple needles are used for practical as well as decorative sewing such as pin tucks, two/three stitches in a row etc.
  • The spacing of the needle is measured in mm from tip to tip (2 mm needle has a 2 mm space between the points)
  • The triple designation is usually accompanied by another needle type specification such as “Universal”.
  • Works superbly on modern sewing machines such as Babylock, Bernina, Bernette, Brother, Elna, Husqvarna, Viking, Janome, Kenmore, Pfaff, Singer and more.
  • Caution: Not suitable for Industrial sewing machines because they require needles with a round shank.

Top 10 Sewing Tips:

Tip 1: Needle

  • With the Universal Triple Needle, you can create professional looking seams – even without using a coverlock machine.
  • This is similar to using Twin needles to get Overlock stitch look on a normal sewing machine.

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!
  • Home sewing machine needles run at less than 1000 stitches per minute and even that mostly intermittently. Therefore, heat generation will be minimal. Therefore, nickel plating will protect the needle very well.

Tip 3: Needle

  • Using your normal household sewing machine, you can sew three parallel, stretchy seams at the same time using three top threads on the top of the seam.

Tip 4: Thread

  • Use a vertical Spool with a threaded bobbin for best results.

Tip 5: Fabric

  • Keeping the Fabric taut will ensure best results.

Tip 6: Fabric

  • Some thin fabric may need stabilizers / backing added to the back of the fabric to prevent thread pulling in the fabric between the stitching lines. This is especially true for knits.

Tip 7: Sewing Problem

  • Skipped stitches: Check the machine setting (or) thread quality. If you cut about two feet of good quality thread and hold both ends, it must hang in a “U” like necklace.
  • A poor quality needle will not and most likely cause a skipped stitch.

Tip 8: Sewing Problem

  • Thread Cut: Beissel needle have a superbly polished eye which is done by deburring techniques. Cheap needles cannot afford this and, if examined under a microscope, will see rough edges in eye. This will cause thread breakage.
  • A damaged shuttle hook or throat plate also will cause thread breakage

Tip 9: Presser Foot

  • Choose correct Presser foot to accommodate the triple needle.

Tip 10: Prewash Fabrics

  • Prewash fabrics because they might shrink, chemical colours can run, all these will spoil the garment if washed after the project is completed.
  • Can also cause puckering if unwashed.
