    Longarm needle question

    I have a Gammill longarm and need to order needles. Here is my question..I accidentally threw away the pkg. when I used my last needle and I can't remember what I've been using. What is the most common size needle you longarmers use in your machine..........HELP PLEASE!!!

    You want to have both size 16 and size 18 needles. Size 14 are not really adequate for most tasks. The 18s work for heavier fabrics and metallic thread.

    The size I use the most is 3.5, but I have also used 4.0. I buy them from Linda's Electric Quilts online. That's also where I bought my Gammill. (I don't know if this compares to the size 16 or not). Hope this helps.
