I will be sewing a lot of tote bags made with Coffee bean burlap sacks lined with upholstery fabric and interfaced with decor bond. I broke 2 needles (size 100) already. I was wondering if I need to get this needle plate to be able to use size 110 needles. Thanks.

Hi Nonette,

I am interested to know if you did get the thicker fabric needle plate and if you feel it is worth it. I sew several layers of fabric backed with decor bond and find hitting the needle plate sometimes. I was wondering if this will help.

Thanks so much.

Yes, I did get the thick fabric needle plate and the thick fabric presser foot. It did the job when sewing thick layers of fabric. I make burlap tote bags fused with decor bond and use drapery of upholstery fabric for lining. I also use titanium size 90 or 100 needles. These helped to prevent the needle from hitting the plate and needle breakage. I also use tex 40 thread- Gutermann Mara 70 from Wawak is best.

Thank you so much for your reply,I will definitely get the plate and pressure foot too. Where do you buy your needles from and what brand do you use?- Thanks

Sorry , I just saw your post today. I buy Organ Titanium HLX5 sharp needles from eBay- from sharp sewing supplies or cutex sewing. They're both great vendors on eBay!
