Sewing with a wing needle – SINGER 6550-WORKBOOK Scholastic User Manual
Sewing with a Wing Needle
Use a Wing Needle to create a beautiful heirloom look on pillowcases,
napkins, or special occasion garments. A Wing Needle is very wide and
makes a large opening or hole in the fabric every time it stitches. Several
different types of stitches can be used. For best results, use a stitch with
forward-back movement, so that the needle penetrates the same hole
more than once.

create a design.) Stitch along the drawn lines of the design
