On the Road . . .


Power Quilters, Embroidery Enthusiasts and Stitch Mavens, there is a new needle in town! SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade needles. We have been watching and listening to how you stitch.

You are sewing faster and more intensely than ever. New home sewing machines are built to sew faster than ever - 1000 stitches/minute and more. SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade is the perfect sewing partner, and here is why:


  • Chrome resists heat.

  • Chrome resists wear. That little needle takes a beating stitch by stitch and it gets hot.

  • Chrome will stay cool longer with less stitch distortion.

  • Chrome aids the thread to pass through the needle eye with less friction and less heat build-up.

  • Chrome also allows the needle to pass through the fabric with less resistance.

For years Chrome has been the needle choice by industry professionals, and now SCHMETZ Chrome is available for our home sewing machines. I was so excited to get these needles, I grabbed a box as they were being delivered into our warehouse and made this quick video. Take a look, plus you can see why the cards are so colorful:



SCHMETZ Chrome is shipping now to your favorite independently owned quilt shop and sewing machine dealers.

So my dear friends, when your foot is on the pedal, power stitching to your own tune, keep up with SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade needles.
