icon What's the Difference Between a SCHMETZ Stretch Needle and a Jersey Needle? ~A Stretch Needle has a shorter and narrower eye compared to a Jersey needle. ~The Stretch Needle scarf (that little indentation on the back side of the needle above the eye) is deeper. ~Both needles have a medium ballpoint. Use the SCHMETZ Stretch needle on elastic or highly elastic fabrics. Start with a Stretch Needle if the fabric blend includes or Spandex. If the stitch quality is not to your liking, then switch to the Jersey with elongated eye.

icon The most popular needle, the Universal, has an eye that is 40% the width of the blade. Really! There are three other needles with larger eyes, the Embroidery and even more pronounced is the elongated eye of the Metallic and Topstitch needles. Now what does a larger eye mean? There is less friction on the thread as it passes through the eye. Ever sew with a thread that breaks or tends to shred? Guess what, use a needle with a larger eye. If you have old thread or maybe a poor quality thread, use a needle with a larger eye. The thread and needle work hard and fast. Help them out when you can with a larger eye.
