Twin needles are two sewing machine needles attached to one shaft with a plastic bridge connector. One needle is shorter than the other which makes it possible for the bobbin to catch the thread in both needles when sewing.
This needle is commonly used for decorative stitching and the creation of pintucks. It is also popular for creating hems on knit fabrics and can be used with any sewing machine that sews a zig zag stitch.

I love sewing and I’m in the process of learning how to use my new embroidery machine. But I also love to quilt.
