Sewing Machine Needles 135x16 DI #18 (Pack 10) are specialty needles designed for working with leather. These high quality leather needles by Schmetz are optimized for heavy, dry and hard leather. The blade cuts fibers so that the needle does not have to separate them. These are industrial needles that have shanks that are completely round.

Needle sizes are listed two ways, by size and measurement, so a #18 needle is the same as a 110. For more information on needle and thread choices, see the Thread and Needle Recommendations document.

How to Insert a Sewing Machine Needle

Inserting a needle in a home sewing machine is easy, but what about needles that are industrial style and don't have a flat side on the shaft? It is more difficult to figure out how to insert them appropriately. We will show you the correct way to face the needle in your industrial or heavy duty sewing machine. We will also explain how to thread the needle.

Needles for LSZ-1

Haven't yet used these, but I've used ones like them. I was almost out.

USPS was used for shipping. What should have taken a few days took over a week to arrive.

Game changer needle

This is a game changer for sewing vinyl. Although it's meant for leather, I get much better results using it on vinyl.

Didn't work out.

Quality of needles seemed good; however, the round configuration of the end did not fit my machine properly. I had to buy a different product from my local fabric store.
