If you choose the wrong thread, it can completely fail. Think of threads that break, let go, do not stretch, etc. First of all you have to pay attention to the material of the thread, the quality / brand, the color, and the thickness of the yarn. Depending on these characteristics you have a certain type of thread. Do you want to know more about these types of yarn and what you use for what? Then read on here about the different types of yarn.
Also with needles you have all kinds of types that need to be used in combination with certain types of thread or with certain types of fabrics. Think of heavier fabrics for which you often need a thicker needle, or the opposite. You also have special needles for embroidery, stretch fabrics and so on. For the bulk of your work you will need the so-called universal needle, twin needle, and stretch needle. These are suitable for almost all sewing machines, but sometimes require extra caution, special feet, and of course you need to know when to use which needle. We discuss this extensively in the article about different types of needles. The Machine Overlocking Thread offers much support in this case.
The Importance Of The Right Stitches
Even before you put the needle in the fabric, it is important to tell a little more about different types of stitches. When you work with a sewing machine you often see that you have all kinds of options to set certain stitches on the machine. But also in certain tutorials or pattern recommendations, people sometimes talk about “stitches” and that you have these in all shapes and sizes.
The stitch is the way in which the threads in the machine are woven together, but also at what distance, with what tension, and whether they have to take on a certain shape. These stitches are very important because you will have to choose a certain stitch depending on the fabric you use and the effect you want. The length and tension of the stitch is also important here. If you do not do this properly, it may be that your stretchy fabric can suddenly no longer be stretched or that the seams of your suit will jump apart during the middle of the day.
There are dozens of types of stitches, some of which are even for one type of sewing machine. In general, however, there are a dozen stitches that everyone should know, of which there are two that you use the most: the (triple) straight stitch and (stitched) zigzag stitch. It may be a bit boring to learn about the various stitch types, but it is also a good time to get to grips with this basic information before you start working full of enthusiasm. Having this knowledge beforehand can save you a lot of stress and misery and make your life a lot easier. Read here everything about the different stitches and when you use which.
