WHICH IS THE BEST BRAND OF NEEDLE?

The two best needle brands in the sewing industry are Schmetz and Klasse.  Both of these brands are German engineered and go through MANY more processes in their manufacturing.  The result is a more consistent stitch and a longer lasting needle.  You'll find both of these high-quality brands in our Centers.

The Klasse needle story:

Designed in Germany since 1861, and engineered to meet the most exacting industrial performance standards, Klasse needles have achieved the coveted ISO 9002 quality assurance certification. All Klasse needles go through 155 quality checks, earning the industry's highest quality rating for: stability at high speeds, seam appearance, clean stitch holes, and precise and uniform stitchability.

Strength Where It Counts: A unique curved design at the critical clearance-above-the-eye (CAE) stress point distributes pressure equally and makes Klass needles much stronger than conventional flat CAE needles. Each needle also has a unique number stamp on the machine insertion end, which allows you to identify its point style and size when separated from the original package.
