    Why Chrome?
    Super strength.
    Longer lasting.
    Improved performance.
    Resists heat and wear.
    Stays cooler longer with less stitch distortion.
    Allows the thread to pass through the needle eye with less friction and less heat build-up.
    Allows the needle to pass through the fabric with less resistance.

    Chrome is the natural partner to high performance machines and those power quilters sewing faster than ever.

    Schmetz Chrome Professional Grade needles are made for Sewists, Quilters, and Embroidery Enthusiasts who are sewing faster and more intensely than ever before.
    These needles will work with all household sewing machine brands and types for which needles with a flat shank are required.

    Between a sharp point and medium ball point, this is a general purpose needle which can be used for most applications without issues.

    A general purpose needle that can be used on knit or woven fabrics. A casual sewer who might repair a pair of jeans today, a child’s t-shirt tomorrow, and some lingerie next month will probably use this needle most often. It will do a number of tasks sufficiently. It has a long scarf that is great for zigzag stitching and it does not damage knits. It is sharp enough to go through a lot of fabrics but it does have a slight ball point which does not make it ideal for going through many layers or high thread count fabrics.

    Size 80 is the standard weight needle for standard applications; for light weight woven fabrics, for example broadcloth, taffeta, crepe de Chine and gauze.

    Suitable fabrics:
    • Brocade, fleece, leather (thin), velvet, seersucker
    • Batiste, chiffon, organdy, organza, taffeta
    • Chambray, terry, linen
    • Crepe, poplin, voile
    • Chenille
    • Cord, felt, jacquard, calico
    • Velour, wool/wool-mix fabric
    • Tulle, viscose, panne velvet, half-linen
