  • U.S. site of Schmetz (German) –  needles for more purposes than you’d imagine possible, including sergers/interlockers; extremely informative & helpful!


  • Wade through Gutermann site’s options for your language & use   fyi ~ they make a 100% poly recycled thread w/no flying fibres or thick/thin spots
  • Coats & Clark:  Rather difficult to locate details, then they concentrate on which thread weight to use for which fibre; nothing about flying fibres & thick/thin spots
