Use Universal needles for general sewing of woven fabric:
- cotton, linen, lawn, chiffon, poplin, seersucker, crêpe-de-Chine, organza, voile
- suitable for lightweight fabric
Universal needles feature a slightly rounded point, for trouble-free sewing of numerous types of materials.
An alternative choice for a delicate or tightly woven fabric is the Bernina Microtex needle.
You will achieve the best sewing results by choosing the right needle type and size for your project, as well as changing your needle on a regular basis. We recommend using a fresh needle approximately every 6 hours of sewing, or after every 3-4 bobbins. A dull needle can result in stitch and tension issues.
It is a good idea to always test your needle choice with your fabric and thread.
