It can be very frustrating to sew with dull needles and pins. Nothing compares to trying to sew fine bra fabric with the wrong needle! Why frustrate yourself or risk ruining your fabric? We carry the best Needles and Pins for bra-making right here. We use these for ourselves in the classes and in our own sewing rooms.
Stretch Needles – Stretch needles for your machine are essential when you are working with knits that contain spandex fibres. The blunt point on the needle allows it to slip past the fine yarns, rather than pierce them. This prevents skipped stitches or runs in the cloth.
Ballpoint Needles – Ballpoint needles will likely be a mainstay in your bra-making needle drawer. Ballpoint needles have a slightly blunted tip that allows it to slide past the yarns, thus avoiding snags in the fabric or skipped stitches.
Serger and Cover Stitch Needles – Use these hard-to-find needles for the best results in those machines. You won’t believe the difference in the machines when you use the right needles. No more skipped stitches going over bulky seams!
Universal Needles – These are the needles you use for most general sewing. They work well for woven fabrics and it can work quite well for some knits.
Clover Silk Pins – These ultra-sharp pins are great for pinning slippery bra-making and panty fabrics.
Wonder Clips – Wonder clips can replace pins for many tasks specific to bra-making. You can clip fabrics together in order to sew without damaging fine fabrics. You can also use them at your serger to hold the layers together.
