- DR. BOB
Bob Purcell (Chief Threadologist of Superior Threads) discusses the importance of using a correct needle in any sewing/quilting/embroidery project. The Topstitch needle has three outstanding features which make it a Superior needle. A light sharp point, an elongated eye, and a deep groove lining the shaft of the needle.
There are four sizes to Superior's Topstitch Needles: #70/10 for fine weight threads such as Kimono silk, MonoPoly, 60 weight threads, #80/12 for piecing weight such as MasterPiece, So Fine! #50, 50 weight thread, #90/14 for Quilting/Embroidery weight threads such as King Tut, Rainbows, Highlights, 40 weight thread, and #100/16 for heavy threads such as So Fine! #30, Sew Sassy, and 30 weight threads.
