Just downloaded the free Schmetz app for iPhone. I don't know if it's on Android too or not. In any case - it has lots of basic reference info about needles, and then it has a listing of a whole bunch of fabric types.... with the suggested needle type and size! It also has a problem solver section that addresses some causes of thread problems (upper or lower thread breaking, skipped stitches, frayed stitches, thread loops under the fabric, bad stitches, puckers, popping noises).

Just wanted to let folks know in case they hadn't seen it either...

I also downloaded it, there seems to be a wealth of info on it. Just purchased some specialty needles before but I always seem to be checking before every project as I can never remember.
I think this app will answer my questions.
