Not all sewing machine needles are alike and as any experienced sewer knows, using the right one can make a huge difference in the quality of your stitching. The same, of course, can be said of fabric and for this reason it is important the right size and style of sewing machine needle be used. While the universal size 80 is good for a lot, its not good for everything.
It is not uncommon for any experienced sewer to have mulitple projects in the works, in different fabrics requring different needles. To keep track of what needle is in my machine I tape a small piece of paper to the front of my machine that indicates the needle size and the number of projects it was used for. This way I know if it will work for the project I will be working on. It also is a good indicator of when its ready for the trash bin.
