Thread and Needle Chart

* In general, fine threads and needles are used for
sewing thin fabrics, and thicker threads and
needles are used for sewing heavy fabrics.
* Always test thread and needle size on a small
piece of fabric which will be used for actual
sewing.
* Use the same thread for needle and bobbin.
* When sewing stretch, very fine fabrics and
synthetics,use a BLUE TIPPED needle.
The blue tipped needle effectively prevents
skipped stitches.
