The WEDGE POINT NEEDLE, which is designed for leather and vinyl, easily pierces these fabrics to make a hole that will close back upon itself. This eliminates unattractive holes in the garment, and also reduces the risk of the stitches tearing the fabric. The wedge point needle comes in sizes 11 to 18. The size 11 needle is designed for soft pliable leathers,while size 18 is designed for heavy or multiple layers of leather or vinyl.

My brother ls-1217 breaks needles, almost like it is out of alignment


Are you inserting them flat side facing away from you and making sure that they are inserted all of the way up? Make sure that your needles are not too long, ie. Singer. Check your tension and that you have the right needle for the job, as in denim use a heavy needle like a 14 or 16. Other than that it could be the timing which unfortunately needs a professional to fix.

The machine needle broke and I'm not sure what needle I need for my Brother LS-2220 sewing machine


Wow, talk about rambling solutions to a simple question ...
Brooklyn35, go to a place that sells sewing machine needles and buy some, period, end of story. All home sewing machines for the last 50 years (not sergers) take the same needles, the best quality needles are Schmetz brand, they are stronger, sew better, and last longer than cheap ones.

leather needles, they make little cuts in the leather as opposed to normal needles that try to punch wholes, which does not with such dense material as leather.
