Any universal twin needle should work, there is no attachment. Just don't set your stitch width too big if you are in zig-zag!
I hope this helps and good luck.

Where can i find needles for a singer 306k machine ?


What type of material are you going to be sewing? Sew-Classic has 10 needle packages of the size 12 and size 14 needles for the Singer 306 for light (not fine) and medium weight material. (It's a 206x13 needle for the single needle. The twin needle is a 306x3.) See http://shop.sew-classic.com/206x13-Sewing-Machine-Needles_c46.htm .

http://www.allbrands.com/products/15221-schmetz-german-206x13-flat-shank-needles-100-size has some notes on alternative needles. The site has boxes of 100 size 14 and size 12 needles. (The size 14 needles are out of stock due to delays on the manufacturer's side.) https://www.college-sewing.co.uk/206X13-SIZE-90-PACK-OF-10-NEEDLES (size 14) needles in stock.

Unfortunately, I do not see any twin needles available for the 306K. I hope this helps.

How do I attach a twin needle post to my Bernina 950


Hello Erina
Sounds like you purchased and wish to use a twin needle which comes as two needles on a single needle shaft, correct? That is terrific and you have a wonderful machine.
Remove the needle in the machine just the same as you have been over the past 2 years. Unscrew the needle clamp screw, pull down on the needle or part of the needle in the machine and insert the new twin needle shaft into the needle bar. Tighten the needle clamp screw and thread the needles using two sources of thread on the top.
If the existing needle post is not coming out of the needle clamp easily, use a pair of pliers to grip and pull down. Cover the sewing surface to ensure that it will not be damaged as the pliers free the needle. If the needle is firmly embeded, you may need to give the pliers a gentle tap with a small hammer.
If using a zig zag stitch make sure that the width does not exceed the twin needle limit; otherwise as the needles swing from side to side they can hit the stitch plate and brake.
Happy Stitching

How do I insert another needle to have twin needles in my 7436 Singer.


You don't. You need to purchase a twin needle; it has one shaft, and two needles attached.

This machine is supposed to be able to have twin needles. Where do I insert the second needle.


Twin needle assemblies have to be purchased! When you buy one, you will see that it has ONE needle shaft that goes into the needle clamp, and two needles attached to that. Take a look at the drawing that is next to the top button over the needle shaft area, and it has a rough picture of a twin needle. In other words, it's a TYPE of needle, like a ball point needle, leather needle, jeans needle, etc.

How to adjust placment of twin needle so it doesnt hit edge of bobbin holder?


The needle should not hit the bobbin holder at all. Do you have the needle inserted all the way? If it is too low, it will hit. If you are saying the needle is hitting the sides of the needle plate where the needle goes through, then the needle is too wide for the plate. Either use a narrower twin needle or see is a needle plate with a wider needle hole came with your machine. Some decorative stitches can't be used with a twin needle because the combination of width of stitches and width of needle is too wide. In that case, narrow the stitch width until the needle doesn't hit the needle plate or use a narrower twin needle. I hope I have helped and answered some of your questions. Good luck.

Code E8 on brother Model Ns40


Yes the manual for Brother sewing machines are available from their support site: http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?ProductGroupID=3#.TyH3fIFtNG9 . I believe the NS40 is the Brother Innov-is 40. The direct link to the manual is http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_Innov_%C3%ADs%2040_%20NEW%20Limited%20Edition_EN_1114.PDF . An E8 error means that a stitch was selected after the twin-needle setting has been selected. Cancel the twin-needle setting and then select a stitch. Then if you are using a twin-needle setting, adjust the machine for the twin-needle setting.

I hope this helps.

Skips a few stitches when using a double needle. I'm using a recently acquired old Pfaff Hobbymatic and have used a double needle before on a Singer. When I tried sewing, it will stitch but then skip a...


firstly are you using a regular twin needle on a knit fabric? this could cause skipped stitches.
is the twin needle quite old and possibly blunt?

Is the Hobbymatic a model that requires a slanted twin needle, there are two types of twin needles as the computerised machines need the offset style. You can distinguish between them by the plastic block on the needle shaft where the twin needle points are set, either red or a deep brown colour.

If none of the above apply, then it is possible that the timing sequence is slightly off so that one of the needle's thread is not getting caught during the stitching.

Timing is an adjustment that I leave to the technician to address. But if you want to have a go yourself there may be some videos on you-tube for your model and how to make this adjustment to it.

What twin needles do I get for my overlocker ,It is a Janome Mylock 134D Are the needles universal or do I have to get a special one for this machine


I think Janome Mylock 134 has 2 separate needles. They are #11 or #14 for sergers and secured by 2 independent setscrews. I saw on ebay the instruction book with the owner's handbook for Janome Mylock 134D.

I've just got janome 634d serger, how can i make the bottom of a T-shirt ? Thank you so much


If you want the bottom of the T to look like RTW with the double row of stitching, you cannot do this on a serger.

You can achieve the effect by using a twin needle, two spools of thread, bobbin and a straight stitch.

Make sure the double/twin needle will pass through the presser foot and opening in the needle plate below the presser foot.

Practice on a double layer of a scrap of the T shirt material as the tension may need to be slightly looser than the normal setting.
