Superior Titanium-Coated Top Stitch Needle 80/12
Superior Titanium-Coated Top Stitch Needles is a top quality sewing machine needle that stays sharp longer than other needles. The Topstitch needle is the most common needle type used as it has a larger eye and deeper groove and is recommended for piecing, quilting, embroidery, appliqué, and construction. These needles are available in four sizes to accommodate all thread types, including metallic threads.
Having a good needle in your sewing machine is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to improve your stitchine and sewing projects. You can have the most expensive machine available but if you’re using a cheap or worn out needle you’re not likely to get a great result.
Due to it's strength and resistance to corrosion titanium is used in aircraft, naval ships and spacecraft. It's also used in Superior Topstitch Needles giving quilters a sewing machine needle that will stay sharp far beyond other brands. For years titanium coated needles have been available for industrial machines and now home sewers can enjoy the benefits of a needle that will last on average, 5 to 8 times longer than a standard needle.
And since they cost a mere fraction more than regular needles you'll actually be saving money and changing your needle less often.

I like these needles. They have a large eye. Which I find most useful. Also they last longer. Altogether. Superior
Anything is breakable in my hands !

My sewing machine has a default setting to the left of the central opening in a sewing foot.
I often forget and as a result I regularly bring the needle down on the foot and break it. Which I have done with a new titanium needle......
Yes, I know - not very clever.
Otherwise sewing with the new needles has been fine.

These needles are brilliant. From sewing a quilt, to making a tool bag for my husband from a very heavy bulky material, the same needle then sewed jeans hems with out a hitch or missed stitch. Better than a jeans needle ever did too. I have bought several packs which I have given away as presents. Try and see for yourself.
