    The instructions on my Kenmore just mention a twin needle, but gave little detail on set-up. It appears to be more of a (needle) decorative stitch option with this machine. And, I agree it could be a nightmare with the bobbin.

    I asked my wife about it and she said it is definitely for decorative stuff. She is the resident expert.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    My serger uses two needles, but that is a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT type of sewing machine. My current (soon to be retired?) machine supposedly can use two, but I have never tried it, & the new one is still in the box so, , , , ,

    the twin needle is actually just two needles that are connected at the top, so it's inserted into the machine just as if you were just putting in one needle.* then you use two top threads and sew some fancy stitch to make something look "purty"!!* The underside is still using the one bobbin with it's one thread.* I also have a triple needle, just like the twin only there's three needles that are connected at the top with one shank that goes into the sewing maching (just like a single needle) and again even though you will thread 3 different spools of thread into the top, you're still only using the 1 single bobbin underneight.* A serger is a whole other type of sewing machine hence the calling it a "serger" and not a "sewing machine" !!
