Depends on your machine and what you will be sewing. Your best bet is to write down the kind of machine you have and then take that info and a sample of the fabric you will be sewing in to a fabric store - they can help you get what you need.

What kind or brand of needle do I get for my Necchi Omega Special Edition sewing machine?


Your owner's manual should tell you what type needles your machine uses. According to this site, 130/705 needles will work with your machine, are also very common, and are available in several brands: Schmetz, Janome, Organ, etc.

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/necchi-6018-sewing-machine-parts.aspx

In addition, you will need to determine the needle sizes (60/8 through 120/19) as well as the needle point (universal, ball-point, sharp/microtex, top stitch, embroidery, leather...) so the needle is compatible with the thread and fabric you are stitching.

SCHMETZ Household Needle Chart

Be sure to change the needles frequently. A needle should be replaced about every 8 hours of sewing time. Sewists tend to skimp in this regard (although needles are the least expensive fix!), but the needle is the most frequent cause of sewing machine issues. So, if your machine begins to misbehave, the first thing to try is a brand new needle.

What kind and size needle should I use in my Kenmore 158 14300 machine


Needles are sold at WalMart or other stores. The needle size is depending on what you are going to sew. The needles have the sizes marked on the package. The type of needle that your machine uses is a standard needle for sewing machines; no special type.

Why is my brother ls2160 is sewing fine on cotton but not on the material I am using. Its a stretchy silky kind of material. What am i doing wrong?


You may need to use a walking foot with your machine as stretchy fabrics are hard for the feed dogs to 'grip' and pull the material through under the needle.... you will probably need to change needle as well... there should be a helpful video on YouTube that will tell u all about sewing with stretchy fabrics and how a 'walking foot' works... hope that helps.

I just bought a Janome 9700 and I was wondering what kind of needles work best. I have hear that the Organ Titanium are really good. What are your thoughts? Thanks!


I've been sewing for over 30 years, I used organ needle before, but not the organ titanium, you said you just bought the machine, did it come with a instruction manual? if it did then it should tell which needle to use.
I have 2 necchi sewing machine & one babylock serger & I use SCHMETZ universal needle on all my machine, I never had any problems sewing with them, I make clothes & quilts & even upholstery some.
happy sewing

I am in need for needles for my Speedylock 1600 What kind of needles do I use......the manual says household type.....does that mean a regular sewing Is machine needle? Is there a size or number?


The plain ol' Singer-type needles are what you need, they're pretty much the standard through the household sewing machine/serger industry.

Match your needles to the material you're using (thickness of the needle) and the thread you're using (eye size). There's generally a chart on the needle package to clue you in there.

That's a nice machine, good luck with it!

I don't know what kind of needles to use. I have three older machines (117.552 158.18030 158.13201) all bought used. The manuals all say use Kenmore needles -not enough info. Is the 15x1 series of needle...


You can use Kenmore, Singer, Klasse, Schmetz or Organ needles for home sewing machines - they are the same configuration.

The instruction manual should indicate how to insert the needle, either according to the flat side of the needle shaft or the groove down the front of the needle.

Needles for older machines may require a round shaft needle. Needles for industrial sewing machines have a round shaft.
