SOURCE: I have a Singer Ultralock

I have been bailed out by www.sewingpartsonline.com and www.sew4less.com a couple of times for parts on a couple of older machines that I have. They also have manuals for purchase too. I think that I would call them and see if there is a substitute, ie. needle clamp for 14u64 and see if it would work. I know how frustrating it is to try and find parts and manuals, I hate to see a good machine go to waste. Good luck.

I think that your best solution is a new manual.
You can get Singer manuals through this site.
Alas for me, not so for Standard Sewing Equipment manuals.

From where can i buy elna sewing machine needels? Pleace.


Consult your owner's manual for the size needles your machine takes. Usually, it is 130/705 needles.

If so, you can purchase this size from most any fabric, sewing repair shops, or online vendors. There are many manufacturers who make needles, ie Schmetz, Organ, Klasse, as well as Singer. Schmetz is readily available most places in the US. (IMHO, Singer needles are made more specifically for Singer sewing machines and may not work as well on a non-Singer machine. Most Singer machine manuals recommend using only Singer needles and some sewists have experienced problems when using a different brand.) You may have to experiment with brands if you have any problems with a specific manufacturer brand.

However, there is much more to choosing needles for your machine than the size and brand. The most important choices are to choose needles that suit the thread & fabric you will be sewing. Be sure to read up on the needle types (from smallest 65/9 to heavier 110/18) and the design/shape that will work best for you, ie sharps (for woven fabric) or ball-point (for knits), quilting, topstitch, embroidery, microtex, stretch, denim, universal, leather, etc.
"The European metric sizing system for sewing machine needles is numbered from 60 to 110. The American sizing system is numbered from 8 to 18. For both sizing systems, the lower the number the finer the needle and the higher the number the larger the needle. Most needle companies show both sizes on the package." (quote from Singer)

In addition, if your machine is capable, you may also be able to use twin, triple needles, wing, wedge point needles. The following will be helpful when you make your purchasing choices:

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.

Need part for Singer TS380 plus


Your parts are all available on eBay right now. Just do a search on Singer TS380. As to the needle, they're standard sewing machine needles and you can purchase them at any variety store--even some drugstores--that carry a few sewing items. They're made by a number of companies--Organ, Schmetz, etc., as well as Singer.

Needle size for singer 3014


Your machine takes standard sewing machine needles, available from quite a few manufacturers like Organ, Schmetz and Singer. I have even seen them for sale in drugstores! Most people use #11, #12, or #14 needles--the higher the number, the larger the needle, and the thicker the material. In addition, Sharps are used for all woven fabrics like cotton and wool; ball point needles are used for things like t-shirts and other knit fabrics. Home sewing machine needles range from #8 to about #18. For instance, you would probably use a #14 or #16 needle for Jeans, although for those, there are also specialty Jeans needles you can also use.
