Using Twin Needles on a Quilt
Classes with Jayne Brogan • Educational, G, 10-Jan-2022
Using a twin needle is a great way to sew two rows of stitching at the same time…in perfect parallel.
In this video, Jayne and Valerie demonstrate how to use a twin needle to stitch either side of your seam. You can also use threads that are a complementary colour to that of the fabric, creating a gorgeous effect.
They also walk you through how to do a serpentine stitch with a twin needle which creates a beautiful trapunto-like effect. Rest easy, the machine will automatically tell you the size that you can use for your serpentine stitch, helping you to avoid a broken twin needle.
This video is also part of the #IDidntLikeToAsk Video series hosted by Valerie Nesbitt and Jayne Brogan.
