    Anti Glue machine needles

    So....
    I just found these needles online. They are available at lots of online sites (according to Google), but I have never seen or heard of them before.

    Have any of you tried them?

    I found the Schmetz nonstick needles. I guess they are the same type. Love them. I stitched a whole appliqué quilt without any gummy mess to clean every so often. This is one of the best ideas someone came up with.

    If you are wondering about batting a quilt with Elmer’s washable school glue once it is dry it doesn’t gum up a needle. I’m about 20 quilts in withbglue basting. I don’t appliqué so have no experience with that.

    Wonder if they would sew 'non sew' velcro that doesn't stick well? That is some nasty stuff--lol !

    I use the anti glue needles for any fusible or glue on fabric I am sewing. The needles sew without any drag at all even if no build up.
