How to Select the Right Needle: For Home Machine Needles

FLAT SHANK NEEDLES

15x1: HAx1, 130/705H, SY2020, SY2031, 206x15, PFx130, canu 22:15

This is the standard needle with a flat shank and a regular size eye for most home sewing machines and home sewer based embroidery and quilting machines. It is widely available in a large range of sizes with a sharp or ball point, also available with PD/titanium finish.

15x1 SP: HAx1 SP

This is a special version of the 15x1 for stretch or elastic materials and tightly woven knits. It is made to higher standards, it has a snake’s head shape due to a combination of a slightly bulged eye and a slightly reduced blade above the eye. The bulged eye opens a slightly larger space in the material and the thinner blade above the eye reduces contact between the material and the needle. This reduces needle heat-up and prevents skip stitches. It is also available in a light ball point to separate the fibers rather than cutting them, avoiding needle holes in the fabric.

15x1 ST: HAx1 ST, 705H-E.

This is a special version of the 15x1 for embroidery and decorative stitching. It is made to higher standards for longer life. It has an oversized eye to reduce stress and tension on the thread. It also accommodates metallic threads or heavier top stitching threads and makes needle threading easier. It is available in sharp or ball point, also available with PD/titanium finish. 

HAx130EBBR:

This NEW needle was developed for use in the new Babylock EMB6 and Brother PR-600C machines. It is an industrial quality needle with a flat shank, reinforced blade, light Ball Point and an oversized eye. It is available with a hard chrome finish.

ELx705:

This needle is made specifically for cover stitching. It has 2 grooves, a slightly longer scarf and a light ball point.

15x2: HAx2, HAx1LL, 130LR;

This is the leather point needle with a flat shank. It has all of the same features as 15x1 with the addition of a lens shaped point to cut through leather and other heavy materials. Caution must be used when changing to this needle. Extra space must be left between needle penetrations to avoid ‘cutting out’ the design.

HLx5:

This needle is made for sewing hard, thick or heavy materials. It will sew through multiple ply applications like quilting, jeans, applique or heavy embroidery. It is actually an industrial needle with a flat shank. If you are bending or breaking 15x1’s this needle could solve your problem. These hard chrome needles will outlast a standard 15x1 and the

PD/titanium needles are even more wear-resistant. They are available in either sharp or ball point with a hard chrome or PD/titanium finish.
