If you are having a tear-your-hair-out experience because of thread issues in your home sewing machine, it could be that you are committing one of the 7 Deadly Sins of Sewing (GASP!!)
Why are these sins so deadly? Well, if you're experiencing this much frustration, some one could end up...you know...
1st Deadly Sin:
Sewing with the wrong needle size
Sewing with too-small of a needle can cause your thread to shred. The size of the needle should correlate with the thickness of the thread you are using. This ensures the thread can move smoothly through the eye of the needle and have enough protection the groove of the needles shaft. Are you experiencing skipped stitches? Time for a new needle.
We recommend using Superior’s Topstitch needle for most sewing and embroidery applications. These needles are amazing for at least two reasons. First, the eye of a topstitch needle is nearly twice as long as the eye of a universal needle. This extra length helps reduce friction, resulting in fewer thread breaks. Second, the titanium coating extends the life of a needle up to 8 times longer than chrome-plated needles.
