All about sewing machine needles

Sewing machine needles for your sewing machine are the most replacement part of your sewing machine, they affect how your sewing machine forms stitches. Understanding how the needle parts of a sewing machine work will help you choose the right needle for the fabric and thread you are using.

All sewing machine needles have the same basic parts; the variation in needles is determined by their shape and length.

The shank of a sewing machine needle

The top thick part of a sewing machine needle is called the shank. This part of the needle is inserted into the machine. Needles for household sewing machines are made up of a flat side and a round side to help insert the needle correctly. The flat part should be toward the back and the round side at the front. Needles on industrial machines have a fully rounded shaft and the groove is used to know in which direction to place a new needle in the machine.

The groove in the needle

A groove is located along the side of the needle leading to the eye and acts as a place for the thread to be placed in the needle. The groove of the needle come in different sizes. This has to do with the thickness of the needle but there are also special needles with an extra large groove to better guide the super strong thread through it.

Through the eye of the needle

The eye of the needle carries the thread so that the machine can continue to form stitches. The size of the eye can vary and works in conjunction with the groove of the needle. If you use a needle with an eye that is too small or too large, your thread may break and snap.

The point of the needle

The point of the needle is the first contact with the fabric and is responsible for how the needle passes through the fabric. The most common types of needle tips are sharp. Sharp needles are for all woven fabrics.

What kind of sewing machine needles are there?

Below we will list the most common types of sewing machine needles.

Universal needle, System 130/705 H

As the name suggests, universal needles are the most commonly used needle. The universal needle is often used as the standard needle for all types of sewing projects because it allows easy processing of many materials. They can be used on woven fabrics, synthetic fabrics and some knitted fabrics. The finer needles are usually used for lightweight fabrics. The thicker needles are used on medium to heavy fabrics.

Stretch needle, System 130/705 H-S

A stretch needle has a Special indentation, allowing extra space for the gripper tip to get close to the needle and this prevents skipping stitches. This needle is therefore ideal for use with fabrics such as Lycra, silk, jersey and highly elastic synthetic fabrics or even elastic itself.Polyester or cotton wrapped polyester threads should be used.

Super stretch needles, System HAx1 SP

When even a normal stretch needle still skips on difficult fabrics use HAx1 SP needles.
This needle is also excellent for use when your Sewing Machine or Lock Machine keeps skipping stitches.

Embroidery needles, System 130/705 H-E

Embroidery needles are designed with a wider eye so that threads such as rayon and polyester embroidery thread can pass freely and easily during embroidery.

Embroidery needles have a pontoon scarf with an oversized hump, reducing the likelihood of this by reducing the amount of movement in the fabric.
