Sewing Machine Needles 135x17 #18 Ball Point (Pack 10) are specialty needles specifically designed for sewing knit fabrics and stretchy materials. The blunt point on these high quality needles preserves the elasticity of the fabric by allowing the thread to pass between the fibers of the fabric, rather than through them. These industrial needles by Schmetz feature completely round upper shanks with no burrs.

Needle sizes are listed two ways, by size and measurement, so a #18 needle is the same as a 110.

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.
