Re: All about needles-The Sequel
Janome and Organ needles
Janome red tip needles are size 14 universal.
Janome Blue tip are size 11 universal
Janome Purple tip -needle of choice for embroidery and quilting
I spoke with a rep from Diamond Needle Corp in NJ about the Janome purple tip needles. He couldn't talk directly about the Janome needles but said that the Organ HAx130EB was also a cobra reinforced blade, light ball point and comes in several sizes as well as a topstitch model (HAx130N). He said they are sold for the Brother and Babylock 6 and 10 needle embroidery machines. http://www.diamondneedle.com/pdf/FSN-10.pdf
Organ needles make the purple tip for Janome. You can buy them from Marathon threads in Canada or USA. The number is 15x1SP. You can also get it in ballpoint which I like 15x1SPBP. Allstitch in USA has 100 for about $27. They have the cobra head and elongated eye which makes a little different opening in fabric giving thread a smoother path. I love them for free motion as well as embroidery. They were primarily designed for elastic but are great for all home sewing and embroidery machines.

Some time back, there was some information about Organ needles. I went to Organ's website and could not find the "model" number of the needles I had bought in bulk. I would love to buy a box of 100 of the new purple needles that everybody is currently talking about but I don't know if they make an equivalent needle. Does anybody have any information about buying the new Janome purple needles in bulk? Thanks.
I hear wisdom comes with age. I'm still waiting.
