Apr 03, 2014

The Schmetz Needle App for iPad and iPhone helps sewers choose which Schmetz sewing machine needle is best for different fabric types. It also teaches about the various types of needles and their anatomy, provides tips for figuring out when to change a needle, and others trouble-shooting clues. You can bookmark your favorite Schmetz needle among the many that are listed in the app, accompanied by each needle’s features and usage information. Visit Apple’s iTunes app store to download the free app.

The launch of this app coincides with Schmetz’s introduction of a new needle color-coding system. Each of their needles is marked with two colored bands which indicate its size and type. Because of the wide variety of needles that Schmetz offers, they have created a handy diagram which you can print from here and keep by your sewing machine.

Have you downloaded the Schmetz app? If so, what are your favorite features? Do you plan on using their new needle color-cooded system?
