Juki Sewing Machine Needles
The right needle will enhance your sewing experience. Juki sewing machine needles are available by size and style. Each of the needles is used for a specific fabric or for a specific model of sewing machine. Juki is a superior machine and using the best needles available is the only right choice. Sergers, seamers and embroidery machines use needles specific to the model number.
Juki sewing machines come in many models. When you are buying needles for straight line sewing, you must consider the fabric. Juki sewing machine needles are not in packages labeled Juki, but are manufactured by various companies, and the most popular and available being the needle companies in Germany & Japan. Knowing the right size needle will be in the instruction and parts manuals for your specific machine.
Since Juki sewing machines do so many different tasks, knowing the proper needles is essential. For instance, if you are sewing a button onto an article of clothing, you would need to purchase a pack of Juki sewing machine needles for sewing buttons and that would be a long shank #16.
General sewing will use Juki sewing machine needles marked by the size 11 or 14. Many packages are mixed sizes to offer variety. Remember that the most important factor in sewing machine needles involves which fabric the needle will be sewing. Each fabric benefits from a certain shape of the needle point.
When you have purchased a multi-needle Juki, you will be informed in the manual which needles to use. Juki sewing machine needles are made for the number of needles your machine requires. All models require the proper needles that make the precision sewing possible.
The bobbin case must accept the needle in order to finish the stitch. Without the proper hook and needle, the stitch can not be accomplished. This may be a fairly easy mechanical process, but one that helps make sense of selecting the right needles.
You must consider the fabric and the job! It will be easy enough for you to get all the help you need through your Juki manuals and websites that offer guidance if you are very new to sewing.
If you are a sewing mentor to a younger person, teach the basics of using the proper Juki sewing machine needles, threads and fabrics. Sewing with a Juki gives the seamstress or tailor the most exciting experience and the most professional looking finished product.
