The needles used in sewing machines are standardized, which is the first thing to know. They work with a variety of brands, such as Janome, Brother, Husqvarna, Elna, Pfaff, and others. Any sewing machine needle you buy from us will work with any reasonably new domestic sewing machine, so you can shop with confidence.
At first, the sheer variety of machine needle kinds and sizes may seem a little overwhelming. But understanding the various sorts is not that difficult. The most popular needles are shown.
You might be curious about what sewing machine needle sizes like 80/12 or 110/18 mean. So, stop wondering now! One of the two numbers corresponds to the American size, while the other to the European size. European sizes range from 60 to 110 from thinnest to thickest, while American sizes range from 8 to 18 from thinnest to thickest.
