Chrome resists heat.
Chrome resists wear.
That little needle takes a beating stitch by stitch and it gets hot.
Chrome will stay cool longer with less stitch distortion.
Chrome aids the thread to pass through the needle eye with less friction and less heat build-up.
Chrome also allows the needle to pass through the fabric with less resistance.




These chrome needles will withstand your power quilting and stitch addiction.


Needles wear out.
Just think of the number of times that the point of the needle goes through the fabric when sewing a seam.
They may look alright to the naked eye, but the points become dull.
Using a dull needle puts stress on the sewing machine.
There is another factor in the life of a needle. As those miles of thread pull through the eye they rub on the steel causing the eye to become rough and it can shred the thread.
Don't think that just because the needle is not broken it is alright.


a dull needle can cause a lot of damage to both the project being sewn and the machine itself.

Quilting Needles

Embroidery Needles
Use with specialty embroidery threads. The distinct scarf, widened groove & enlarged eye protect fragile threads & guard against excess friction allowing trouble-free embroidery and decorative stitching. The light ball point makes this needle friendly to a large variety of fabrics.


Superior Machine Needles



Superior Threads is known for their careful selection of high quality products and Organ Needle Company (Japan) teamed together and applied the latest technology of titanium-coated needles to the Topstitch style for home machines.

Because these titanium-coated needles have an ultra thin coat of titanium nitride, they will stay sharper longer and outlast any current Topstitch needle on the market.
Titanium-coated needles have been available for longarm and industrial machines for many years but these are the first titanium-coated Topstitch style needles made for home machines.
Why select a Topstitch Needle for everyday tasks?
The Topstitch needle has a larger eye and deeper groove.
It is often referred as the MAGIC NEEDLE and can make a difference in your sewing experience.
Longarm Needles
Longarm machines are multi-directional giving more accurate stitching while moving the machine in any direction. You need to use Multi-Directional Needles -- you recognise this as MR or SAN with Groz Beckert and other suppliers


With the naked eye, it is hard to tell a difference between needles.
But when you are stitching at 500 or 1,500 stitches per minute, you can definitely tell when you have a good needle or a bad needle.

The designation of 'MR' is "Multi Range" (also known as SAN: Special Application Needle) which was created for the textile industry, more specifically, the 'MR' needle style was developed for automated sewing processes with multidirectional feeding systems.
If your machine is not stationary (such as a Longarm machine), then the 'MR' needle style is the one to use.
Needle Size #14 = MR 3.0
#16 = MR 3.5
#18 = MR 4.0
#19 = MR 4.5
#20 and #21 = MR 5.05 )



Mid Arm Machines work really well with the Correct Needles - Groz Beckett is recommended by the top Manufacturers
