Rhonda with SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW back issues.

On the Road . . .


Thank you for reading SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW! We hit a milestone. Thirty-six (36) monthly issues have been published! What started out as a fun idea really blossomed into a digital product that not only supports the SCHMETZ product line, but also features sewing stars and events that are relevant to our creative sewing world.


Rita Farro nails the research and excels at writing each feature and Paul Ragas does magic with graphics and distribution. Together, we get giddy deciding on features while technology progresses making my dream come true of sharing our wonderful world of sewing.


Go back to take a look at the back issues. Everybody has their own creative journey and I am so very pleased to share them through SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW.

Computers are integrated into our lives, just like driving cars. We use, trust, and yes, rely on our computers. Imagine computers in the late 20th century ... 1991. Now imagine a math whiz meeting up with an art curator. Through collaboration and moxie, Dean Neumann and Penny McMorris had a vision that rocks our creative world today ... Electric Quilt. Without a doubt, Electric Quilt created a growing niche with a loyal following. Electric Quilt escorted designers into the 21st century. Congratulations Dean and Penny for your powerful contributions to our colorful quilt world! Enjoy! Click Here!

SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade Needles


Thanks, Jane, for the testimonial! Jane is the owner of Daffodil Quilts & Fibers.




"The following statement and pic comes from Trisha, one of my customers, who is a bag maker and had problems with needle breakage. I sold her the new SCHMETZ Chrome Quilting Needles 90/14 and as you can see she is thrilled with them! In fact, she stopped by the other day to buy more because she doesn't want to ever run out!


'Just had to share how amazing those SCHMETZ Chrome needles are. Sewing on the straps with five layers of duck canvas, one layer of Shape-Flex and one Soft & Stable layer WITHOUT any issues! Thank you!'"

SCHMETZ Quilting Needle

What needle should be used for quilting?
One choice is the Quilting Needle. This needle has a thin tapered point
allowing the needle to smoothly pass through fabric layers. The

point helps eliminate skipped stitches and promotes even stitches.

Quilting needles are available in two sizes:



SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade

8 needle types in a variety of sizes. 23 SKU's.



Lazy Girl Designs Prezzies




Need a gift idea? Joan Hawley, Lazy Girl Designs does it again! Love this clever & quick gift project. Really, this is a gift wrap and a present itself. Purchase the pattern at Your Local Shop.

Remember . . .




The needle gets dull from use.

The needle is meant to be changed.

It is not a permanent machine part.
