Tips on Choosing the Right Needle and Thread when Hand Stitching Hems

Before beginning to hand stitch the hem, it is important to have the correct type and sizes of needles and threads on hand.

To accomplish invisible hem stitching, the needles need to be the correct type and size. Needles need to be strong enough not to bend or break as you slip the needle through the fabric. So, choosing the correct hand needle type and size is important. In needle sizing, the length and thickness of the needle denotes the size. The larger the needle size, the shorter and finer the needle will be.

"Sharps" are good all-purpose needles and ideal to use for hems or other hand stitching.

They have a sharp point, a round eye, and are of medium length. Select the needle according to the weight of the fabric. The needles used for hand stitching hems are sizes 7,9, and 10. A good average size for invisible hem stitching is size 9.

Notice they are threaded with a single thread, ready to stitch hems. Embroidery needles, also known as "crewel" needles, are identical to sharps but have a longer eye, making it easier to thread multiple strands of threads.

The length of the thread used to stitch is important. Many people use a thread so long that it tangles. There are also those ready to stitch their hem with double thread, thinking this will stitch invisible hem stitches!

Cut the thread approximately 22 inches (or your arm length) - any longer and it will get tangled. Re-threading shorter lengths of thread is ultimately quicker-pulling long thread through every stitch takes more time.

Cut the thread diagonally on one end. This makes threading the needle easier. Turn the garment to the wrong side. Get comfortable - lay the garment across your lap. Begin by securing the thread on the seam line using three or four overhand stitches with a single strand of thread (not double).

Continue stitching the hem in the direction outlined for each hem stitch. Take the finest stitches possible, as hem stitches must look invisible from the correct side of the fabric. Don't pull hand stitches too tight or the hem will look puckered. When the hem stitching is completed, finish as you began with three or four overhand stitches and clip the thread. When the hem is completed, press in place.
