The best "all around" needle for your Janome machine.
If you ask your friendly Janome service technician, "What's one thing I can do to prolong the life of my sewing machine?", he or she will tell you to use fresh needles. The rule of thumb is to replace your needle each time you start a new project.
So you walk over to your dealer's Janome needle display. You see needles for denim, leather, heavy fabrics, knits and topstitching. But you're doing regular sewing and quilting. Which needle should you be using? For typical sewing and embroidery projects, the answer is the Janome Blue Tip needle.
The Blue Tip needle has the shaft size and type of point that gives your machine great performance on all kinds of medium weight fabrics--whether it's embroidery, quilting, or making garments.
At size 11, the Blue Tip needle is a little thinner than our Red Tip Needle, but without giving up strength and durability. It features a special flat back shank for easier installation, a sturdy shaft with front groove, and a larger eye to help prevent thread breakage.
Like all Janome needles, the Blue Tip has been designed to help your machine to stitch its best. And it will work on all Janome sewing, quilting and embroidery machines.
