SCHMETZ Chrome Quilting Needles

SCHMETZ Chrome Quilting Needles

Wondering what needle to use for quilting?

One choice is SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade Quilting. A special tapered tip to the slightly rounded needle point allows easier fabric penetration. The Chrome finish reduces heat & wear on the needle passing through the fabric and reduces friction on the thread passing through the eye. This all adds up to fewer skipped stitches, less thread shredding and more even stitches.

Two sizes available:

75/11 — A piecing favorite!
90/14 — Quilt with heavier threads or 40 wt variegated threads.
