The Latest Elna Sewing Machines And Their Needles
The 2012 Elna sewing machines have come out with the Stretch Lightweight needles which are used on knits. These Stretch needles
feature a deep scarf. This scarf makes it possible to get the bobbin hook closer to the needle eye. This way, these sewing machines make it
possible to prevent skipped stitches on the fine, lightweight knit fabrics. The stretch, lightweight needles of the Elna sewing machines are
perfect for stitching lycra, silk jersey; or any other highly elastic, lightweight knits. You can use them on lightweight faux suede also.
The Elna sewing machine has also come out with the topstitch needles which are used for topstitching. These topstitch needles come with an
extra large eye besides a large groove which is meant to accommodate heavy topstitching thread. You can even use two strands of all-purpose
thread with this needle. Besides, these sewing machine accessories have an extra sharp point. This is meant to give you straight as well as
Twin Double needles are also used by Elna sewing machines. These too are used for topstitching. These sewing machine accessories are made with
two needles which are attached to a single shaft. You can use them for stitching parallel rows in a single pass. This kind of stitching is
required for heirloom or decorative stitching as well as hemming. But you can use these needles only with Elna sewing machines which have zigzag
capabilities. This means that it should be able to thread from front to back. Another feature of these needles is that they are available in
stretch, denim, embroidery and metallic. Besides, the other sewing machine accessories are the twin hemstitch needles. These have one wing needle
and the other one is a universal needle. The sizing for these twin needles will be different from other specialty needles. This is because there
will be two numbers which will be listed on the packaging. The first number will represent the distance between the two needles. The second
number on the package will represent the European needle size. You need to use closely spaced needles in case you are sewing fine fabrics in Elna
sewing machines. Needles which are set further apart are suitable for heavy fabrics.

sewing machines accessories are constructed with three needles, all of which are attached to a single shaft. These triple needles are available
only in universal. The sizing for these triple needles will again be different from the other specialty needles. They will have two numbers which
