How To Read The Needle Package: Needle Type

On the package above the size and needle system lines, the needle type is printed.  This is a pack of embroidery needles.  Now that needles are color coded you can also see through the packaging the top band of color.  Red is an embroidery needle.

SCHMETZ manufacturers 16 needle types so you can select the best needle for your project and technique.  Take a look at the list of needle types in the earlier post dated November 18th, 2013.  There’s a reason SCHMETZ makes so many needle types. . .  using the appropriate needle type really does make a difference in stitch quality.

The next post will be a quick review of the needle package.

    I teach at a well known quilt shop in San Diego, CA. How can I find more of those little booklets you have on your needles to hand out to our customers?

      Hi Deborah: The SCHMETZ ABC Pocket Guide is available from distributors. Order item #D-81. The retail price is $4.95, but they are free to quilt shop & machine dealers.
