Klasse Machine Needles
Klasse quality universal machine needles in a pack of 6 needles. Each needle is engineered to the highest industry standards using the latest integrated technologies. Klass has over 125 years of experience in making needles.
Universal Needles are ideal for most woven fabrics, most knits and synthetics. Klasse universal needles have a slight ball point making this needle versatile for sewing most fabrics.
All Klasse needles are stamped with the needle type and size on the curved side of the needle shank with metric and imperial sizes followed by the relevant needle mark codes (K0, K1, K2, K3 etc...).
Choosing the correct needle is important.
The stitch quality is dependent on using the correct needle for your thread, fabric and the type of machine sewing you are using for your project. When the wrong needle is used you may get stitching that puckers, skips or the thread may break.
Fabric - Consider fabric weight, thickness, weave type (woven or knit), weave density (close weave or loose weave) and composition (natural fibre or synthetic).
Thread - Consider matching your thread composition to your fabric (polyester threads for synthetics, cotton for cotton fabrics and blends etc
Needle Style - Choose your needle based on the style of sewing and thread you are using rather than fabric type, eg. stretch for lingerie, embroidery for quilting. If your project involves general sewing or overlocking, base your needle choice on the characteristics of the fabric you are sewing with. For instance, if you are working with heavy woven fabrics such as denim use a jeans needle, for leather fabric, use the leather needle.
Needle Size - When you have selected the type of needle you must also choose the size of the needle. The size is the width of the needle.

Replace Needles - Machine needles should be replaced after a maximum sewing time of 8 hours. Replace needles more frequently when sewing synthetic fabric, appliques or machine embroidery. This will avoid damage to your fabrics and skipped stitches.
Breaking Needles - Machine needles are designed to break for the protection of the sewing machine hook mechanism. If a needle bends, do not sew with it. When a machine needle breaks, it is a warning to check the following:-
- Is the needle type and size correct for the fabric?
- Is the thread too thick or unsuitable for the needle size and application?
- Is the upper thread feeding freely?
- Are the thread tensions set too tight?
- Does the machine need cleaning/oiling?
- Is the correct presser foot fitted?
- Is the correct sewing technique being used?
- Is the fabric being pulled, pushed or dragged during sewing?
- Twin needles, triple needles and other specialty needles can break due to excessive heat build up. To avoid breakage reduce speeds and avoid prolonged useage.
Shipping within Australia is via Australia Post Parcel Send. You will have a tracking number attached to your order when it has been shipped. Please check your spam folder in case the email ends up there.
Shipping can be anywhere from 1 - 10 working days, depending on your location and other circumstances. Bra, Brief and other lingerie kits do take us a little longer to prepare as we like to make them when they are ordered to ensure all elastics etc are not sitting on our shelves here. Please note: We try to minimise our environmental impact and will not put small wire or component orders in separate bags.
We will try to use recycled or environmentally safe packaging where possible. We may also use recycled satchels if available.
Small orders - We know sometimes you only want a couple of bra rings and slides or a couple of pairs of wires and freight seems high for such small items. We have the flat rate there so we can track all orders and this rate is not negotiable, even for small items. This is because we use the same courier system and do not get cheaper rates for small items.
Large Orders - If purchasing in bulk amounts, free freight is no longer applicable. Please select it during checkout, and when your order is packed, we will weigh it and send a separate shipping invoice. Please understand, we cannot offer the discounted price along with free freight as the parcels often are quite heavy when you buy in bulk.
Standard shipping within Australia is a flat rate of $12.50 with a packing and handling fee of $2.50 per order. Parcels are handled via Australia Post Parcel Send.
The $15 shipping fee is non-negotiable and non-refundable.
Orders over $150 receive free freight option (this is not applicable for bulk buy purchases)
Express shipping is available at a flat rate cost of $25 within Australia. To ensure the parcel is sent on the day of ordering, the order must be in by 11am for a midday collection.
Lost/Delayed Parcels - If a parcel is lost in transit, it is no fault of Booby Traps as it is in the care of Australia Post. We will endeavour to assist you in trying to sort out the problem as promptly as possible. In some cases the parcel may simply need to be located and then it may arrive late. If you have insured your order, we can resend your parcel when Australia Post deems it lost.
Please Note: Booby Traps is not responsible for courier/Australia Post delays/damages. We hope customers can understand that when the parcel leaves our premises safely and promptly and is in the care of another business we cannot be responsible for any issues that may arise. These instances are not frequent but can happen.
If a delivery is attempted and the goods are not collected at the designated post office, Booby Traps is not responsible for returning the items back to the customer. On occasion, we can perhaps send the returned items with your next order. Please note: there are no refunds on any items returned to our warehouse because the courier could not deliver to the address provided.
Insurance is available when processing your orders and it is strongly recommended you select it. If you do not, this means you are accepting the risk of damage or loss yourself. Sadly Australia Post will not take liability if no insurance is added. We will do our best to assist you should you have problems, but cannot guarantee we can resend your order without insurance coverage.
Packing Times - We endeavour to ship items within one business day of receiving the order. On some occasions this is not possible, due to workshops, in-store customers and sewing classes, so parcels may be posted up to 3 business days after the order is processed.
Pick up in store is welcome, and the items must be pre-paid, so the order may be packed and ready for collection. Collection can be organised via Email. Please telephone or email to ensure the order is ready and organise a suitable time. Kindly ensure we have confirmed the pick up before coming into the warehouse.
Overseas shipping is most welcome. There is now no minimum order amount and all items are sent via Australia Post Parcel Send.
Please note: We have overseas freight prices in place for a 500 gram parcel only. In some cases, further freight fees may apply if a parcel is heavier than 500g. These additional freight fees are payable by the customer. We apologise for our website not being able to quote your order, but as we have so many tiny items, weight doesn't work correctly.
All items are shipped via Australia Post Track and Trace or express if selected. If you do not see your Country available when ordering please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and inform us so we can try and sort it out for you.
Packing and Handling
Booby Traps is mindful of its environmental impact and we are constantly striving to reduce packaging waste. This means we try and use as little plastic as possible while packing our orders. We know on occasion, this means you may have to sort items, but we hope you can understand and share or mission to keep our planet healthy.
Packing and handling fees of $2.50 per order apply and is included in your freight through checkout. If selecting store pick up or free freight, this fee will be added independently.
Bra components such as rings, slides, suspender clips, bikini clips and components are packed in one envelope if ordering under 100 pieces. This is also to reduce packing waste. If you do not wish to have this, you must purchase extra envelopes during ordering.
