Embroidery & Bobbin Thread
Good quality vs. poor quality: the better the thread, the better
the results and the easier the process
Fiber content: different types (polyester, nylon, rayon, cotton,
metallic, acrylic, etc.) produce different results
Thread weight: the thicker the thread, the denser the stitching –
embroidery designs are generally digitized for use with 40
weight embroidery threads such as Isacord or Polysheen

Sewing Machine Needles
Along with thread, needles are very important to stitch formation. Many
“mechanical” problems and damage to fabrics can be traced to a bent,
damaged, or incorrect size or type needle. Approximately 60% of all
needles are discarded at some stage of production. When selecting
the correct needle for any sewing project, consider the following:
Needle system – 130/705H
Needle point – to assure proper stitch formation and avoid fabric damage
Needle size – smaller for lightweight fabrics; larger for heavier fabrics
If the needle is:
Too small – the thread can’t stay in the groove to form a loop to be picked
up by the hook point
Bent – thread loop forms too far away from hook point; hook can’t enter
the loop to form stitch
Blunt – needle won’t pierce fabric so no thread loop forms to make a stitch
• Needles should be changed after every 1-2 hours of embroidery stitching,
before stitching the outline of any design, and after every 4-6 hours of regular
sewing. The needle is the most inexpensive part in your embroidery system but is
one of the most crucial for getting good results and keeping your machine
running well. Don’t let false economy keep you from doing what is best for your
embroidery projects and your machine.
• Selected thread should fit in the groove on the front of the needle. If it isn’t
protected by the groove, a needle with a larger groove should be used.
• Always make sure needles are fully inserted, as high as possible, with the
flat side to the back.

75 = 11
80 = 12
90 = 14
100 = 16
110 = 18
120 = 19
Regardless of the system,
the greater the number,
the larger the diameter of
the needle.
Which Needle?
Not all needles are appropriate for
use in embroidery machines. As with
all sewing projects, needle choice is
detemined by the fabric, thread, and
application. For most embroidery, an
Organ needle or Embroidery needle
is the best choice.
Occasionally, other needles may be
recommended for specially digitized
techniques, such as a Wing needle
heirloom embroidery.

Ball Point 60-100 Has a rounded point. 70 for lingerie,
nylon, jersey; 80 for
T-shirt; 90 for sweatshirt fleece.
Microtex
/ Sharp
A sharp point with a thin shaft.
Specially designed for microfiber
fabrics.
Stretch
Quilting
The thin, tapered point of this needle
causes less damage to fabric when
seaming and cross seaming.
Topstitch
A sharp point with a large eye and
deep groove. For use with heavier
fabrics – the large groove cradles
heavier threads.
Embroidery
Sharp needle with a large eye and
groove; also has a coating and a
larger scarf. For use with embroidery
thread – prevents shredding of rayon
or metallic threads. Two threads
may be used through the eye.
Embroidery
Double
Two Embroidery needles attached
to one shaft; for double needle
work with embroidery threads.
Metafil
Similar to Embroidery needle, with
large eye and deep groove, but
made of a special heat-resistant alloy
and with a friction-reducing coating.
Especially suitable for manufactured
fibers such as polyester, acrylic, nylon.
Wing
Sharp pointed needle with a noncutting wedge of metal on each side.
Makes a hole in the fabric without
cutting the threads of the fabric. Used
for decorative and heirloom work,
such as hemstitching. Works best on
natural fibers or on the bias.
Double
Wing
One regular needle and one wing
needle attached to a single shaft.
Makes one large and one regular hole.
Metallica
Designed for use with metallic threads;
has a large eye and deep groove.
Metallica
Double
Two Metallica points on one shaft.
Stretch
Double
70-90
2.5/75
3.0/75
A stretch needle has a more rounded
point than a Ball Point, and a blue
anti-cling coating which helps to
prevent skipped stitches in knits and
elastic. Sometimes used on
Ultrasuede®, vinyl, and plastic.
Two ballpoint needles on one shank;
each needle has a large scarf. Used
for hemming and for stitching on knit
fabric.
Universal 60-120 A compromise between a sharp and
a ballpoint needle; can be used on
both wovens and knits.
60 – very fine batiste
70 – broadcloth
80 – trigger and gabardine

less prone to flex. The sharpness of
the needles makes it better for use on
denim and woven fabrics where a
clean stitch is desired.
Jeans

Thread
Poor quality or the wrong type of thread can cause poor stitches on any
machine. Thread passes through the eye of the needle approximately 37
times in a “seesaw” action before it forms a single stitch. Poor quality
thread results in crooked and looped stitches, uneven fills, misaligned
outlines, frayed thread, and/or needle breakage. To achieve quality
stitches, an embroidery machine needs five things: correct thread,
correct stabilizer, correct hooping, correct needle, and properly adjusted
thread tensions.
Notes
Several factors such as the fiber, twist, ply, finish, and size of thread
must be considered for use with today’s fabrics for fine stitches.
Staple – refers to the length of fibers used to twist together to form a
single ply. Domestic thread fiber lengths are usually 1½” to 2½” long
while European threads use 5½” to 6½” lengths.
Ply – number of strands twisted together to make a single thread.
Roll – the tendency of thread to roll to the right or left during
stitching, causing the stitch to appear slightly crooked. Poor quality
threads are more likely to roll.
Twist – the crimping of fibers which causes them to interlock firmly into
a single ply. Thread should not untwist during stitching. This will cause
skipped stitches, thread breakage, crooked stitches, and weak spots in
seams.
Right twist – most American threads
are twisted to the right, causing
some rolling. This gives average
stitch quality.
Left twist – Most commercial and
imported threads are twisted to the
left, giving better than average stitch
quality. Left twist resists rolling and
makes a larger loop for the hook
point to enter, reducing skipped
stitches.

Embroidery Thread
The popularity of embroidery and wearable art embellishments has
necessitated the creation and marketing of many new thread types,
such as shiny polyesters, rayons and metallics. High quality threads
made in West Germany generally have a left twist; Mettler and Isacord
threads are also left twist. To test the twist of a thread: while holding the
spool in the left hand, roll the strand of thread towards you with one
thumb. Left twist will tighten, right twist will loosen.
Notes
Fiber – refers to the type of material used to produce the thread.
Some commonly used embroidery and embellishment threads:
• Polyester 2 ply embroidery thread – Isacord and Polysheen
embroidery thread – excellent for embroidery, very abrasion
resistant. Recently made available in variegated colorways.
• Acrylic embroidery thread – excellent for embroidery. Abrasion
resistant. Available in variegated colors.
• Cotton 2 ply embroidery thread – such as Mettler 60/2 – excellent
for French Machine Sewing, delicate machine embroidery, piecing
and darning. Has a matte finish with a slight sheen.
• Cotton 2 ply embroidery thread – such as Mettler 30/2 – loose
twist for a soft, shiny look in machine embroidery, applique, and
buttonholes. Thicker than most embroidery threads, 30 weight
cotton may require that the stitch density be decreased slightly.
Available in variegated colors.
• Rayon – available in 30 and 40 weight – a lustrous embroidery
thread. Weaker than cotton, it is used for decorative work only.
Available in variegated colors.
Thread Storage
Thread does wear out and deteriorate with age; it should be stored
with care to keep it usable as long as possible. Extreme moisture may
cause thread to swell while very dry conditions can leave it dry and
brittle as it ages. Store thread in a covered place (thread box with a lid,
cabinet with doors, or drawers that close) if possible to keep it dustfree.
Be wary of old spools of thread recovered from Grandma’s sewing box.
The fibers may be so weak and brittle that even if it sews without
breaking, it may be so unstable that the garment or project will not hold
together and the life of the project may be considerably shortened.

Stabilizers & Interfacings
Tear-Away Stabilizer: The most commonly used type of stabilizer,
designed to provide temporary support of stitching. Placed on the wrong
side of the project and carefully pulled away once stitching is complete.
Available in three weights – heavy, medium, and light. Multiple lightweight
layers may be preferable to one heavy layer, as they are easier to
remove. The Hydro-Stick version, available in lightweight and heavyweight tear-away, has water-activated adhesive on one side for a secure
bond and a high degree of stabilization for very dense and/or intricate
designs. Also available: Smooth Touch Tear-Away, Ultra Clean & Tear.
Notes
Cut-Away Stabilizer: The most widely used stabilizer in the commercial
market. Does not break down under dense stitching, due to the high fiber
– rather than paper – content. Excess stabilizer is trimmed away after
stitching (leave approximately ¼” of stabilizer around the edges).
A Hydro-Stick version of heavyweight cut-away is also available.
Web/Poly-Mesh Type Stabilizer: A specially formulated cut-away
stabilizer developed for use behind lightweight or light-colored fabrics.
Available in fusible or non-fusible versions.
Water-Soluble Stabilizer: Used for backing and topping, in single or
multiple layers. Available in several weights: Aqua Film Universal Weight,
Aqua Film Extra Weight, Badgemaster (very heavy), and Aqua Mesh
Wash Away. Excellent for decorative stitching and cutwork as there are
no remnants of stabilizer left after removal (it dissolves). As a topping,
it keeps stitches from being lost in heavily napped fabrics such as velvet
and corduroy.
Iron-On Tear-Away Stabilizer: A non-woven product similar to paper.
Perfect for knits, this tear-away stabilizer is temporarily bonded to the
fabric, inhibiting the tendency of the material to stretch.
Heat Removable Stabilizer: Woven from strands of fiber that are
burned away at a low temperature, heat removable stabilizers are
perfect for heirloom stitchery.
Liquid/Spray Stabilizers: Wonderful for sheer fabrics from which all
stabilizer must be removed after stitching, these products are painted or
sprayed onto the fabric. Several light applications are preferable to one
heavy layer.

Knit Fusible Interfacing: A very lightweight, flexible interfacing sometimes used in addition to or instead of a stabilizer, it gives permanent
support (as an underlining) to a fabric. Perfect for plackets, garment
edges, under buttonholes, and anywhere extra body and stability are
needed. Can also be used to stabilize decorative stitch work.
Mastering
Your
BERNINA®
Notes
Woven Fusible Interfacing: This interfacing is sometimes used in
addition to or instead of a stabilizer, it gives permanent support (as an
underlining) to a fabric. Generally cut on the bias to provide better drape.
Gives a firmer hand or finish than knit or non-woven interfacings. Used for
lapels, facings, and anywhere a great deal of extra body and stability are
needed.
Sewing & Craft Sprays
HRFive Temporary Adhesive Spray: It’s water-soluble, so it washes
out completely. Great for basting or holding two layers of fabric and/or
batting together. Can be used as a repositionable spray, allowing items
to stay sticky but be repositioned on other surfaces. This water-soluble
adhesive washes out completely. Works well for securing “hard-to-hoop”
items such as collars and cuffs to hooped stabilizer for embroidering.
Also works on paper, and can be used as a no-show adhesive on vellum.
606 Fusible Spray: 606 is used to make any fabric or stabilizer fusible.
Apply to the wrong side of the fabric to be fused, using several light coats,
rather than one heavy coating. The more coats used, the stronger the
bond will be. Fuse as directed on label.
Fabric Shield: Used to protect fabrics from dust, dirt, grease, and oil,
this spray is water repellent and can be laundered and dry-cleaned.
HRZero Adhesive Remover Spray: For removing adhesives, such as
quilt sprays and other spray adhesives, in addition to label and tapes from
various surfaces. Use on work surface areas, hoops, needles, frames,
quilting frames, stencils, table tops, etc. For use on plastic, metal, wood,
glass, stone, and ceramic surfaces. Not intended for fabric surfaces.
