Quilted Joy only recommends these needles for APQS sit down longarm machines. We do not recommend these needles for stand up APQS longarm machines. Click here for stand up longarm machine needles.
Listed are two needles ideal for the APQS George longarm machine: the Schmetz 12/80 and Schmetz 14/90. These needles are super skinny and I wouldn’t use these in a stand-up longarm machine, but they are perfect for George. This needle is a skinny, delicate needle that our APQS George machine will like. It’s small enough to handle really skinny or finicky threads well. If you try to quilt at high speeds with these needles on a stand up machine, you are risking needle breakage. These needles are just the way Amy at APQS likes them: NOT titanium tipped.
