Schmetz Universal Twin Needle
Sewing with Twin Needles opens up a wide range of practical and creative options, such as adding texture with pintucks or shade effects to translucent fabrics. You can also use these needles to add decorative seams to clothing and quilts or add creative hems, as well as to hide bending lines when letting down a seam.
Twin Needles consist of two needles, which are connected with a single shank by a bar. These needles also have a flat shank and, like individual needles, fit in any conventional sewing machine: the flat shank always points to the rear.
At SCHMETZ, the needle spacing is always shown in millimeters and the needle size in NM (number metric)
- Sew decorative stitches for decorative seams. Push the twin button on your sewing machine (if present) to limit the stitch width so that the needle does not hit the throat plate by mistake and break.
- Sew on lace; the slightly rounded point of the Universal Twin Needle is suitable for a wide range of materials.
