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!
