What needle should be used for quilting? One choice is the SCHMETZ Quilting Needle. This needle has a thin tapered point allowing the needle to smoothly pass through fabric layers. The thin tapered point helps eliminate skipped stitches and promotes even stitches.
Quilting needles are available in two sizes:
- 75/11 for piecing
- 90/14 for heavier plain or variegated 40 weight threads for quilting.
If the SCHMETZ Quilting needle is new to you, try the assortment pack containing both sizes.
