For years Chrome has been the needle of choice for industry professions. Now available for home sewing machines, Power Quilters, Embroidery Enthusiasts and Stitch Mavens are sewing faster and more intensely than ever. New home sewing machines are built to sew faster than ever - 1000 stitches/minute and more. SCHMETZ® Chrome Professional Grade is the perfect sewing partner. Chrome resists heat, resists wear, will stay cool longer with less stitch distortion, aids the thread to pass through the needle eye with less friction and less heat build-up and allows the needle to pass through the fabric with less resistance.
