It’s Mechanic Monday!
I was replacing the zipper in an old pair of my son’s jeans and broke a needle. My friend told me that I should be using a “jeans” needle. I thought she was pulling my leg, and then was embarrassed to find out that there really are “jeans” needles. Why on earth do we have to use a special needle for denim? - Beth
Beth: No need to be embarrassed. There are many new types of needles on the market so you can get the most out of your sewing machine. Needle and machine manufacturers have been working together for some time to make something easier and better. There are special needles for denim, quilting, metallic threads, etc. Matching needle thread and project can illuminate a lot of potential problems.
Regardless of your project, machine or type of needle, remember the most important thing to remember about needles is to replace them frequently enough. A new needle after every project is a good rule of thumb. A bent or burred needle can cause snags, skipped stitches, tension problems or thread breakage. Worst, it can hit metal: your machine’s needle plate or hook. Then you may be taking your machine in for servicing. Frequent needle changes are cost effective!
