On the Virtual Road . . .

 

What needle should I use? It's a question we frequently ask. For home sewing machines, SCHMETZ has 15 needle types in a variety of sizes. With the growing myriad of fabrics & threads available, needle selection is even more important.

 

To help, eight new needle combo packs were created to assist in needle selection. The name of the combo pack suggests the appropriate sewing type. For instance, if sewing on vinyls, use the new Vinyl Needles combo pack. But don't think you're only limited to sewing on vinyl. The Vinyl Needle pack contains Super NonStick needles in multiple sizes appropriate for machine embroidery & appliqué, plus many other fabrics, and techniques.

 

In SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW #82, one page is devoted to each new combo pack. Consider the needle uses as just the beginning.

 

The world is sewing and using the appropriate needle type & size makes sewing less stressful and more joyful. In fact, share this special issue of SCHMETZ Inspired to SEW with your sewing buddies.

What Needle Do I Use?

Live now at http://www.schmetzneedles.com.

 

What needle should I use? When sewing, quilting or crafting, it's a question many of us ask. We always like to say, with SCHMETZ you have options.

New SCHMETZ combo packs make needle selection easy. Eight needle assortments for different types of sewing. In this issue, find one page devoted to each new SCHMETZ pack paired with suggested fabrics.

When making your needle selection, ask a couple questions: What fabric is being sewn? What thread is being used? Does the sewing machine have an attitude? Maybe it doesn't like a certain thread or technique. The answers determine your needle choice.

Selecting the needle type & size seems like a small decision, but its impact can make a huge difference between frustration and sewing joyously without incident. Let's sew!

Another Reversible Apron with Personality and Variations.

 

Viola Apron Pattern #MP15 by Mary Mulari

 

This apron, made from two 1 yard fabrics, features options to personalize the fit. Choose traditional neck and waist ties or cross back straps in narrow or wide widths. The apron body with its shirttail hemline is 36" in width at the waist/hip, offering good body coverage. Add pockets with an additional clever feature of a mask/towel holder for temporary storage. Complete a coordinated ensemble with a matching reversible face mask—a pattern in three sizes is included. With Mary's clear instructions and illustrations, seamsters can complete this apron with ease. Sturdy, durable pattern paper allows multiple uses. A bonus: additional tips are available online.

The Adventures of Teddy and Tilda,

The Corona Bears

by Reneé Koroshec.

As a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020 and all the media news, Reneé wrote a cheerful book for children to ease their anxiety during this unsettling time in their lives, and show them how the bears stayed healthy and enjoy their normal activities. Reneé hopes that children living through this pandemic will share the adventures of Tilda and Teddy with their future children and grandchildren. Reneé lives in a small town on the Iron Range in Northern Minnesota.
