    I know this is not a clothing site, but I use the twin needle to put hems in knit garments. I serge the edge, turn it up to the hem width and stitch with a 4mm double needle. The stitching will stretch with the knit.

    Note: Twin needles are ONLY for machines with the bobbin located in the front.

    Does this mean the bobbin is inserted from the front rather than the top? My machine came with a twin needle, but the bobbin in loaded on top.
    No I have a Janome 6600P and it loads from the top and I can use twin needles if I need to. I did a work shop where we were shown what and how to use it.

    I have the same machine you do and the twin needles do work with it just make sure you use the right foot or else you will bend the needles.

    I agree with Sadiemae

    No, cause I have used twin needles before and I had a top loading bobbin.
