    Metallic (Metafil) needles are a "must have" for sewing with metallic and other specialty threads. It comes in sizes 80 and 90. The elongated eye prevents shredding and breaking of metallic threads. If you have struggled with metallics before and blamed the thread, have them try again with this specialty needle for trouble-free embellishment with these beautiful but sometime fragile threads.

    Used with metallic or synthetic threads - this needle has a longer eye with a non-stick coating which helps prevent shredding and breaking of the metallic thread. Also easier to thread due to the larger eye.
    • Sew foil-like metallic threads.
    • Metallic embroidery or effect yarns should always be processed slowly so that the thread does not break.

    Twin needles are actually two needles mounted on one shaft and are used to create two rows of stitches at the same time. When using a double needle, two spools of thread will be used in the top of the machine. Pass the thread from each one on a different side of the tension discs and thread one into each needle. Only one bobbin thread will be used and the stitches will create a double "web" of stitches on the back of the work. Check to see how you like this under-stitching prior to using these needles. The package of needles will show two numbers. One is the needle size; the other is the distance between the two needles. Remember that the needles must fit through the hole in the stitch plate, so if you have been using a straight stitch plate you must change it to a zig-zag stitch plate to avoid hitting the plate with the needles! This could be a disappointing and expensive mistake!
