Twin Needle Characteristics:

  • Twin needles are used for practical as well as decorative sewing such as pin tucks, two stitches in a two etc.
  • The spacing between two needles is measured in mm from tip to tip (a 2 mm needle has a 2 mm gap between the points). Available in spacing from 2 mm, 2.5 mm, 3 mm, 4mm and 6mm. Sizes range 70/10. 75/11/80/12, 90/14 and 100/16.- quite a large variety for every need!
  • The Twin designation is usually accompanied by another needle type specification such as “Universal”, “Stretch””, “Denim” etc.
  • Works superbly on modern sewing machines such as Baby lock, Bernina, Bernette, Brother, Elna, Viking, Janome, Kenmore, Pfaff, Singer and more.
  • Caution: Not suitable for Industrial Machines because they require needles with a round shank.

Top 10 Sewing Tips:

Tip 1: Needle.

  • Twin needles has two needles on a single shank.
  • The designation of needle, for example, 2.5/80 means that the distance between the two needles is 2.5 mm and the size of needles are 80.
  • The two needles are spaced ranging from 1.6 mm to 6 mm

Tip 2: Needle

  • Sizes of the needles range from 70 to 100.
  • Bigger needles tend to have greater distances between them.
  • The Twin needle will have to be threaded manually. Automatic threading will not work

Tip 3: Needle

  • The needles themselves may be Universal, Stretch, Ball point, Embroidery and others.

Tip 4: Thread

  • Twin needle can be used in any sewing machine which can sew both Straight stitch and zigzag. Bobbin does zigzag stitch. If the sewing machine does not have zigzag stitch capability, twin needles cannot be used.

Tip 5: Thread

  • The maximum size of needle in terms of distance is determined by the Presser foot. If too wide a needle used, it will hit sides of Presser feet and break.
  • It is a good idea to first to test stitching on a scrap cloth to ensure that the needles do not hit the sides of the Presser foot. This is definitely recommended especially if you are using a decorative stitch.

Tip 6: Stitch Type

  • In stretch fabrics, Twin needles can be used in place of Serger.
  • The appearance of stitch is usually parallel on top and zigzag at the bottom.
  • Zigzag stitch allows the thread to stretch so than they do not break in wear.

Tip 7: Cloth Thread

  • In woven fabrics, twins are decorative. They can be used for pintucks, hems and decorative topstitching.

Tip 8: Stabilizer

  • Use the extra thread holder hook that comes with your machine for the second spool.

Tip 9: Presser Foot

  • Ensure that the two threads do not cross their path while travelling from thread holder to the needle.

Tip 10: Sewing Style

  • Sew slowly. Use stabilizer/backing for thin fabrics. While hemming, this will help to avoid tunneling effect between the two rows of stitch on top.
