Memo
● The smaller the thread number, the thicker
the thread, and the larger the needle
number, the thicker the needle.
● Use the ball point needle when sewing on
stretch fabrics or fabrics where skipped
stitches easily occur.
● Use a 90/14 to 100/16 needle with
transparent nylon threads, regardless of the
fabric being sewn.
● A 75/11 needle is already installed when
the sewing machine is purchased.

CAUTION
● The appropriate fabric, thread and needle
combinations are shown in the table above. If
the combination of the fabric, thread and
needle is not correct, particularly when
sewing thick fabrics (such as denim) with thin
needles (such as 65/9 to 75/11), the needle
may bend or break. In addition, the stitching
may be uneven or puckered or there may be
skipped stitches.
65/9–75/11
