Preferred for woven fabrics. For general purpose sewing on woven, thick, heavyweight fabrics. Use for fabrics such as medium and thick natural fabrics (cotton, linen, wool and their blends), synthetic materials (polyester, acrylic, elastane, nylon, Lycra) and synthetic fiber materials (viscose and their derivatives). Choose needle size based on the weight of the fabric. It has a sharp edge, so it is suitable for fabrics that do not tend to fray.

Shaft, Scarf, what is that?
All Janome compatible needles will be the same shape at the shank to sit into the needle clamp – make sure the flat side faces away from you. All needles will be the same length so as not to interfere with the way your machine hook forms the stitch. It is only the size of the shaft and the shape of the tip that determines how your sewing experience differs. Such a small thing can make a huge difference!
So don’t settle for cheap generic needles – their quality and effectiveness can cost you more than their price tag. Use Genuine Janome Sewing Machine Needles to get the best sewing experience.
- If the thread is breaking or shredding, go up one needle size or try a Top Stitch needle.
- If the stitches are skipping, change the type of needle point, i.e. Ball Point or Sharp.
- If the thread is bouncing, go down one size.
- Check the needle plate, bobbin case and hook often. Any small imperfections may snag the thread as it passes and cause breakage.
- Clean the machine often.
