Color Code: None
Feature: Universal needle with a slip-in threading slot in the eye.
Fabric Use: Numerous - wovens and knits. A general purpose needle for effortless threading. Formerly known as a Handicap Needle. Not for use with sensitive fabrics (i.e., silk, microfibre, etc.) because the slot might create pulled threads. It should also not be used for quilting as the fibers of the batting might be pulled out. Not recommended for use with Denim as the structure of the needle eye is too weak.
Quantity: Five (5) needles per card.
The Quick Threading Needle is the same as the Universal Needle
except for the small threading slot in the eye. This threading slot supports
quick and easy threading of the needle. The needle is threaded by drawing
the needle thread over the surface of the right side of the needle until it
slides into the eye by itself. It is not necessary to change the thread tension.
Like the Universal Needle, it can be used for many fabrics.
Please do not use the Quick Threading Needle for sensitive fabrics (i.e., silk,
microfibre, etc.) as the slot might create pulled threads. It should also not be
used for quilting as fibers of the batting might be pulled out.
The thickness of the sewing thread being used should be adapted to the
needle size. If the sewing thread is too fine (thin), it might slip out of the
needle eye. If the sewing thread is too heavy (thick), it might break frequently.
Wednesday, May 1, 2013 Quick Threading Needle Blog PostI want to introduce or . . . reintroduce you . . . to the SCHMETZ Quick Threading needle. This is a Universal needle with a little slit off the side of the eye. Just like the name suggests, the Quick Threading needle is very easy to thread - just slide the thread down the length of the needle until the thread pops into the eye. Voila!
