Sewing Machine Needle

What needle size should I use for machine sewing thick linen?.


Hi Margarite,

The best needle to use for heavy linen would be a 14/90. You can find this sewing machine needle size at your local sewing or fabric store.

As I am not sure exactly what your using your fabric for, this is my best advice.

If by chance your fabric is extremely heavy you may want to try a 16/100 which is for canvas or heavy denim,

I hope this helps you Margarite.

Thank you for contacting me. Your question is bound to help many others.

Happy Sewing
