When you need to make a fine point, look no further than the SCHMETZ Microtex Needle. Microtex Needles are generically known as Sharps. This needle has a very slim acute point. In other words, a very fine point. Because the needle is so fine, it also needs to be replaced more often. That’s right! Needles don’t last forever. Replace the needle when you hear a little click at stitch formation or your stitches become uneven.
