Sewing needles

needles, sharp or ballpoint that is the question. sharps are for woven fabric. for my Bernina I use 70 for silky slippery thin fabrics and 80 for medium weight and a 90 for heavy duty overalls (patching the old boys zippers every week) or jeans when hemming. I know there are jean needles and leather needles but for the basic domestic jobs start with these. ballpoint are for knit fabrics same applies for size. twin needles come in sharp or ballpoint with varying width. The more you get into your sewing the more you can venture into the wide expanse of fancier needle types. its all about purpose, when you are doing something new you find out about it and start using it. bit like technology.
