Schmetz Quilting Machine Needles | Sizes 75 - 90
Quilting Needles are designed specially to taper to a slightly rounded point - this prevents damage to materials even when penetrating thick and multiple layers as encountered with quilting (i.e. fabric-wadding-fabric).
To help brace against the extra wadded layers Quilting Needles are also made stronger to dramatically reduce the risk of a broken needle of skip stitch.
Sizes 75 & 90. 5 needles per card.
Also an assorted pack of sizes 75s & 90s
Full Info Below...
Schmetz Quilting Needles are available in two sizes (cross-sectional diameter). Size 75nm (0.75mm thickness) and size 90nm (0.9mm thickness).
As a guide, for general quilting size 90 tends to be the favourite needle choice.
For ease of identification Schmetz stamp the needle size on the shank of every needle they manufacture.
Needle Pack Sizes & Assortment
Sizes 75 & 90 are available in packs of x5 needles.
Assorted Pack 75-90 includes: 3x size 75 and 2x size 90.
We recommend stitching with Empress Cotton Quilting Thread. Fine, strong, soft finish & absolutely natural. An ideal quilting & piecing thread it is light enough to stitch delicate cotton fabrics but strong enough to stitch through multiple wadding layers, backing fabrics etc.
