    Titanium Coated Top Stitch Needles

    Do you use them? Are they really good? I was looking at a link posted on the board and it seems to make sense.

    I use them all the time--love 'em! They last longer than other needles and are great for FMQ. I get mine from Superior Threads, don't know if you can buy them other places. My LQS doesn't carry them.

    Same here. I feel they do a better job for a longer period of time. Could all just be in my head, but trusting your "equipment" goes a long way.

    I've only used the Titanium quilting needles - they seem to last forever. However they do break as easily as ordinary ones when you forget to change your presser feet.

    Several months ago I tried the titanium coated topstitch needles from Organ on my shortarm and they did not work for some reason...I checked the usual things such as tension and so on but the thread kept breaking. I tried different threads with the same result, so I went back to the Singer needle I had been using and things were back to normal. Now that I have my Bailey, I will be trying the titanium coated needles from Superior on my next project (in progress). I'm hoping for good results, smile.

    I think that they are great. The company that makes the Superior needles makes Organ needles. They are the same needle in different packages. Organ needles are available from discountembroiderysupply.com in bulk.

    The topstitch needles have big eyes, about twice the size of regular needles. Go to the Superior Thread Website and
    read about them.

    I only use the titanium needles. I get them from connecting threads.
