Longarm Quilting needles with a round point for precise penetration; the needle’s special scarf makes sure the thread is picked up easily and skipped stitches are avoided even with frequent changes of direction by the needle during quilting; for quilting with special long arm machines.

The Longarm Quilting needle is suitable for quilting with special longarm machines. It has been specially designed for multi-directional sewing.

This needle's hallmark feature is its long and deep special scarf, which makes it easier for the thread to be picked up. This prevents skipped stitches during the frequent changes of direction made while quilting.

The deep thread groove guarantees optimum protection for the sewing thread, resulting in less untwisting and, in turn, a better seam appearance.

With its acute point, the needle ensures precise penetration. This creates quilting lines that are particularly precise and straight.

The SCHMETZ Longarm Quilting needle (135x5 MR system) is a special round shank needle for quilting on longarm machines.

Due to their round shank, Longarm Quilting needles only fit into special longarm quilting machines (e.g. by APQS, Baby Lock, Gammill, Grace Company, Handi Quilter, Innova, Juki etc.). Therefore, please consult your operating instructions to see whether your machine is compatible with one of the following needle systems: 135x5, 134, DPx5, SY 1955. These needles are not suitable for “normal” household sewing machines.
