    Not sure what needle to use? There's an app for that!

    I haven't checked it out yet, but the idea is intriguing. And it's free!

    Organ needles work best on my two machines. I do have schmetz needles, just don't work good for me. My very basic phone has no apps.

    I go it. The basic needle size and types used for what, are good for all brands of needles. If you don't have phone or device that uses apps then get one, you will love it.
    Got fabric?

    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    A shame they don't have an Android app. The site is useful but can't even send a suggestion to provide an Android app as it doesn't recognise my tablet. Thanks for the link.

    Bummer! Why do great apps like this assume we all have a Smart Phone. It would be great if I could have downloaded to my Kindle though.
