New Needles from Schmetz

I'm very excited about this new introduction from Schmetz. Over my quilting career I have used a lot of fusible web and stabilizers: for Too Easy Stained Glass™ and Give &Take Appliqué™ . And students learn to use fusibles in one of my regular workshops, Machine Applique FUNdamentals.  Some fusible products DO put us into a 'sticky situation'.  

About these new needles:

A Super Universal Needle with a non-stick coating of NIT (Nickel-Phosphor-PTFE). Extra-large eye is suitable for embroidery work. The eye corresponds to a needle two sizes larger (i.e., the 70/10 NonStick eye is similar to a size 90/14 regular Universal eye). Distinctive scarf with the special design of the eye ensures prevention of skipped stitches. Slightly rounded point provides trouble-free sewing on most materials. Strong conical blade reinforcement easily handles thick fabrics like denim. 

Check your favourite local quilt store and get 'unstuck'!
