Hand Sewing Needles vs Sewing-Machine Needles

What is the difference between a hand sewing needle and a machine needle? 

There are various differences between the two. The main difference between a hand sewing needle and a machine needle is the sizing numbers. Sizing numbers show the diameter of the needle. On machine needles, the smaller the number, the smaller the needle. On hand sewing needles, the bigger the number, the smaller the needle. 

The designs also differ. Hand sewing needles have a point on one end and an eye on the other. Machine needles have a more complicated design. 

What are the different types of hand needles?

  • Quilting
  • Cotton darners
  • Ballpoint
  • Upholstery
  • Sharps
  • Embroidery 
  • Leather
  • Beading
  • Chenille
  • Self-threading
  • Tapestry

What are the different types of machine needles?

  • Ballpoint needles
  • Universal needles
  • Embroidery needles
  • Leather needles
  • Metallic needles
  • Denim needles
  • Serger needles
  • Microtext needles
  • Stretch needles
  • Quilting needles
  • Topstitch needles
  • Triple or twin needles
  • Wing needles

How do you know what needle size to use?

Needles come in all shapes and sizes. You decide on sewing needle size based on:

  • Sizing number
  • Type of material
  • Type of thread  

You no longer need to be confused about sizing. Needle manufacturers have placed sizing numbers on needles for your convenience! 

For both sewing machines and hand sewing, the size number determines the size.  On hand sewing needles, the bigger number indicates a smaller needle. It’s the opposite for machine needles. 

Picking needle size also depends on the material. The general rule is the thicker your fabric, the thicker your needle must be so that you can stitch with ease. 

The type of thread also determines your needle size. Smaller needles are used when you are using a delicate small thread. 

Why do my needles have two holes? 

Have you ever seen a needle with two holes? This is definitely confusing compared to the regular one hole for one thread system we are used to.

If your needle has two holes then it’s called a double-eyed needle. It has two eyes to help you thread. You can use two different threads to add texture and shading to your work.

These needles can be for embroidery and topstitching. It helps to produce decorative seams. It’s also used during darning. Another use is to join knitted pieces together or to move stitches. 

Are gold needles better for sewing? 

Are gold needles better for sewing? Yes. The gold coating isn’t just to make the needle shiny and pretty. Firstly, gold needles aren’t made of gold. They are just gold-plated. 

There are reasons why your needle is gold. Why are some needles gold?

  •  For easy slippage through the fabric
  • To resist corrosion 
  • An alternative for someone with nickel allergy 
  • Smooth stitching

What is the best sewing needle?
