Hey guys, I’m Cassie from Faodail Creation and every single Wednesday I post videos on how to use your sewing machine and simple tips and tricks in this video I’m going to be talking about the double eye needle So Cassie what is a double eye needle? Let me show you So this is what the Schmetz version of the double eye needle looks like on the front of the packet And I will just take the needle out and show you What the double eye is So as you can see here. It has not just the one hole it actually has two holes Now this needle is different to a twin needle, and I’ll show you what when needle looks like Now this is a twin needle and as you can see it has two needles So here it has two needles and both needles just have the one eye So don’t mix a twin needle up with a double eye needle. They are different So have you ever been to the store and send them cool-looking threads? They’re called variegated threads, and they change color, and I’ll just show you one right now, so you can see So this here is what you call a variegated thread where it changes color and By using a double eye needle you can mimic how this stitches out? So I have set the Machine up with a variegated thread I’m going to see the difference between the variegated thread and the double eye needle, so I’m using a baby lock soprano And I’m going to use one of the stitches What it says its okay to use for my twin needle because I think it’s going to give this a better effect And I’m just going to choose number 68 for both of my examples So let’s see what it looks like So I’ve just got a piece of white cotton and a piece of Quilters Batting just behind it just because I am doing this decorative stitch it’s going to need a little bit of stabilization So with the variegated thread and just the ordinary needle in the machine. Let’s see what this looks like So this is what it looks like with the variegated thread and just the one-eyed needle So let’s see what we can create with a double eye needle and thread choices that we select on our own So I’m going to get a little bit adventurous with my thread choices here, I’m going to go with a beige and my favorite holographic pink thread So we’re going to take our current needle off We’re now going to put our double eye in We’re going to take our variegated thread off I’m going to thread my first thread Now just an FYI You’re not going to be able to use that automatic feeder You never failed to pull this guy down you were going to have to manually feed your thread and Guys don’t forget you also have this little attachment here that hooks right onto your bobbin holder, and it’s to So you can use the double threads for any twin needle work or the double eye needle work Now because I’m using holographic thread He gets his own stand because he’s kind of special and he needs a little extra help and guidance And he has a little thread net around him, so it doesn’t release the thread out so it comes out all bouncy this just helps guide the holographic through a bit more smoothly through your machine Then we just continue on and just put him all the way through Come down to the bottom and then we’re just going to thread him in place in the second eye of the needle One thing to point out when using holographic thread is just make sure that your speed dial is set to medium Holographic doesn’t like to go fast. He likes to take it slow, so just make sure you run a medium pace So as you can see now both the eyes have been threaded, so let’s see the difference that this makes from the first sample So here is my sample using the Holographic thread and a normal polyester thread and this is where I’ve just had like a beige color With my pinky colored holographic thread running through it, and then I changed it up a little bit by doing Black with holographic thread through it and just adds a little bit of sparkle and if you see on the straight stitch this is again with the beige here and For a more dramatic look I did the straight stitch with The holographic with it as well So it’s kind of like not totally holographic like It just catches the light slightly rather than just doing a full holographic on its own I think it adds a little bit of a dimension to it and I also just did it with a White and black polyester, and I’ll show you here So this is without using a holographic thread This is just with the regular polyester thread running through so this is what a straight stitch looks like with black and white and then the black and white with the Decorative stitch I’m not sure why it kind of looks a bit Funny, it looks kind of odd to me Personally I think it looks better with holographic just adds a little something to your work So guys, what did you think of this video leave a comment below? I do read them And I do write back to you one tip that I do want to say is never be afraid to experiment If you want to do something go ahead and do it, don’t listen to anybody on how difficult it may be It may be super super easy for you, and you may love it So don’t forget to hit subscribe, so you don’t miss seeing me next week. Thank you very much for watching. Bye

  1. Great video!!! Could you make a video on what you use the lever that you lift the presser foot with your knee?? I don’t quite get it..

  2. The polyester thread looks like it is not threaded how one normally would thread with one thread needle, so question is, when threading did you leave the polyester thread loose and the holographic thread tucked behind the thread catch above the needle?

  3. Thanks for the information on the double eye needle, never heard of them until today. And I will be getting me some. Can't wait to try them. Happy sewing.

  4. Thank you for this video! Very helpful! I have been basic sewing for years, but beginning to branch out now that I have more time! Keep the videos coming!

  5. That was smashing! Thank you so much for posting this tutorial, I really enjoyed it. The needle is something I've never seen. I really liked it with the varigated thread too.

  6. Thank you… I wasnt sure what the double eye needle did (even though I've got one!) . Is it right that metallic threads need to be in an upright position, like you have here, rather than sideways, to make it run better? I've heard several differing opinions. Thank you again!!
