The Double Hemstitch Needle allows you to sew decorative seams in dual rows that look like a traditional hand-stitching technique, with the combination of a Universal Needle and a Hemstitch Needle mounted on a single shank. The Hemstitch Needle features a wing on each side of the needle and is popular for heirloom sewing and to create decorative cutwork.

Always use the Double Hemstitch Needle with a zigzag needle plate with an elongated stitch hole. Use a satin stitch or zigzag foot as the sewing foot. Avoid seam puckering on soft and light fabrics by using spray starch or a non-permanent stabiliser (such as tear-away non-woven backing, water-soluble or heat-soluble embroidery backing) in order to stabilise the fabric.

Special effects with the Hemstitch Needle
The Hemstitch Needle, also known as a sword or wing needle, is used for decorative stitches, broderie anglaise and white embroidery in loosely woven fabrics such as linen. When sewing, holes are created in the seam, acting as a decorative element. Hemstitch seams can therefore be sewn easily with the sewing machine, even without having to remove the threads in the woven fabric beforehand like you do when sewing by hand. This traditional hemstitch effect is achieved by the “wings” on both sides of the needle's blade, which gently push the threads in the woven fabric to the side. The sewing thread supports this effect because it prevents the threads in the woven fabric from returning to their original position.

Suitable fabrics
The best effects are achieved in loosely woven fabrics, such as:
• Linen
• Batiste
• Cotton
• Flag cloth

• Add shine to the seam by using glossy embroidery threads
• Sew with multi-coloured threads for special effects
• Add a personal touch to a simple blouse with a hemstitch seam along the button strip
• Use the Hemstitch Needle on embroidery machines with embroidery files created specifically for this needle type
• Use the decorative effect when sewing on lace
• Fits most household zigzag sewing machines
