What would you recommend as the best needle for 1 mil PUL and microfleece pocket dipe sewing? Universal, ballpoint, or sharp? Weight?<br>
What kind of thread is the best? I'm guessing maybe Gutermann poly?<br>
I'm using a regular machine BTW, don't have a serger.<br>
Thanks!

I've been using sharps I think- they're not ball point anyway and regular thread that I've had for ages and so far everythings been good. I think the main idea is to sew the pul with the shiny side down to go through the feed dogs, otherwise it may not go through your machine correctly.<br><br>

I thought you were supposed to use ballpoint for pul, since it is a knit. But that is so it doesn't pierce the knit and make it run, which may not be such a problem with the laminate backing.<br><br>
And yes, definitely poly thread.
