Image result for wing/hemstitch needle

Last year when I was learning about all the different kinds of sewing machine needles available, I came across the Wing or Hemstitch needle.  Never having heard of it, I did some research and found out this is used for Heirloom embroidery.  I also read that 'Machine Embroidery' means the computerised designs done by the specialist machines, but embroidery using a normal sewing machine is referred to…

I used to be on this site and had downloaded a lot of content related to my quilt work but I had to create a new account because I could not recover my previous sign on information. Are you a moderator?
