Does anyone know where to buy stretch twin needles on line?
Joann's doesn't seem to carry them anymore. They just have the twin needles for wovens. Thanks for any suggestions.

If you have a dealer locally, you might want to try there. I just bought some Klasse twin needles for stretch fabrics (JoAnn doesn't have them, but two of the local dealers do). They are buy 2 packs, get 1 free.

If you are looking to purchase online Wawak has both sizes, as does several other vendors. I googled "Schmetz twin stretch needles" and came up with quite a few vendors, even Amazon.

Does you local Joann not carry them at all, or are they out? I find it can be hit or miss with the twin stretch needles, esp. trying to find both the 2.5mm and 4.0mm sizes at either the Joanns and Hancocks. Nancy's Notions Online also sells Schmetz and Klasse brands. As Aliann1 said, local SM dealers may have some too - though not many where I live.

If your Joann's has a machine dealer in the store check w/them. I get my stretch twin needles from there. They carry Klasse but your's might be different.

I bought some recently from Schmetz's website:

The delivery was a bit slow but they did come and I love using them.
