The Longarm Quilting Needle is suitable for quilting with special longarm machines. It has been specially designed for multi-directional sewing.

This needle's hallmark feature is its long and deep special scarf, which makes it easier for the thread to be picked up. This prevents skipped stitches during the frequent changes of direction made while quilting.

The deep thread groove guarantees optimum protection for the sewing thread, resulting in less untwisting and, in turn, a better seam appearance.


With its acute point, the needle ensures precise penetration. This creates quilting lines that are particularly precise and straight.

Due to their round shank, Longarm Quilting Needles only fit into special longarm quilting machines (e.g by APQS, Baby Lock, Gammill, Grace Company, Handi Quilter, Innova, Juki, etc.). Therefore, please consult your operating instructions to see whether your machine is compatible with one of the following needle systems: 135x5, 134, DPx5, SY 1955. These needles are not suitable for “normal” household sewing machines.
