SCHMETZ Microtex 70/10
The SCHMETZ Chrome Professional Grade series of needles are my preferred sewing machine needle for my projects. These needles are extra strong and resist adhesive. I use a size 70/10 where I would normally recommend a size 80/12 for sewing through many layers of fabric, interfacing and adhesive. The 70/10 from the Chrome series gets the job done beautifully. I prefer the Microtex style from this line. Consider giving them a try.
