However, this kit comes with 2 needles, the #8 "big" needle in strait and curved. We quickly fixed the larger threading at the base of the shoes, but soon realized that we needed the thinner #4 needle (and thinner thread) for other parts of the shoes. We had to order just the #4 needle separate (hint: if you are in this situation, it is MUCH cheaper to get the one needle via an online auction service you may have heard of....). Some kits come with all 3 needles, I would suggest just paying a little more and getting that.
As for the thread, you need waxed thread. I bought black waxed thread separately, in thick and thin. The thick light-tan tread that came with the speedy stitcher would not have worked on our black and brown shoes.
Hope this helps!
I just added the instructions guide sheet to the customer images for a more detailed idea on how this item is actually used... Hope this helps :-)
To get extra needles, bobbins and waxed thread, go on line to speedy stitcher. Click on products. Go to the bottom of the page where you can click on a website to buy extra items.
Amazon will not let me give you the website directly.
I got some extra needles and stuff but it took two weeks to get it. Whoever is running this little business must be doing it out of their garage or something. They don't seem to be very organized but you will get your stuff. I got one e-mail saying that the item was shipped and then again a week later I got another e-mail saying it was shipped. ??? The right hand didn't seem to know what the left hand was doing.
