Product DescriptionThese Schmetz double eye needles have two eyes and designed to create decorative seams on your work and for use with decorative threads. This pack contains 5 size 80/12 needles.
See the below information from Schmetz about how these needles should be used:
The DOUBLE EYE NEEDLE has two eyes. Therefore, the sequence of the sewing threads is - unlike
threading two threads through one eye - always determined. This is especially interesting if differently
coloured sewing threads are used for decorative seams (see seam example below).
When threading the sewing machine, the sewing thread spools should unwind in different directions in
order to prevent the entanglement of the threads; i.e. one spool should unwind to the right, the other to
The threads should be threaded through all guiding elements, respecting separation elements above the
needle; see also the manual of the machine manufacturer.
Insert the needle into the needle bar as far as it will go. At first try the desired decorative stitch in the
smallest width and then gradually increase the width of the stitch. If the upper thread is not optimally
picked up, the needle can be minimally lowered - less than 1 mm.
IMPORTANT: After that, turn the hand wheel carefully and carry out the first stitches manually. This
avoids machine or needle damages.
If there still is no optimal interlocking of both needle threads with the bobbin thread, the adjustment of
the machine should be checked.
