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 size needle is used on janome model 672


Janome makes sewing machine needles. However, many machine brands recommend using their own brand needles (ie Singer recommends only their needles and I have encountered issues using Singer needles with non-Singer machines). Sometimes, machine-brand needles are higher priced. More expensive does not guarantee better quality. However, unbelievably inexpensive off-brand needles may not be a good thing.

PRODUCT REVIEW JANOME SEWING MACHINE NEEDLES

Janome needles will most likely work fine on your machine, however, most modern sewing machines accept the standard 705/130 needle. Beware, though, that some brands of 705/130 needles have slight variations that may cause problems. If in doubt, consult your Janome dealer or an experienced Janome user. It may come down to experimentation on your own. Don't be surprised that a brand recommended may work better than others. Because a sewist is a staunch advocate of a particular brand, does not mean it will work best for your machine. It's just the nature of the beast because every machine and every needle has slight variations. Purchasing a single package of brand needles and trying them first would be a good idea. If the needle doesn't seem to work, you can try another brand until you find one you like. When experimenting with a different needle, start out sewing slowly (or hand rotating the wheel) in case there is a problem with the needle, you may avoid broken needles.

I've found several brands that work fine on my machines (not Janome machines) and seem to work for most sewists, ie Schmetz, Organ, Klasse, even Kenmore. It's probably best to avoid lesser known brands or bargain bin needles. Fabric stores, like JoAnn's carry Schmetz and if you use coupons, you can frequently buy them at a great price, sometimes 50%.

How to Choose Sewing Needles Looking at Types Sizes Lifespan

Along with choosing the needle for your machine, you need to consider the thread and fabric you will be using. Choosing the correct needle is very important for your sewing success, ie use a ball point needle for knits, a leather needle for heavy fabrics/thread, a sharp/microtex for fine wovens, embroidery for applique & embroidery, top stitch for larger threads & heavier fabric, etc.

And, above all, install a brand new needle frequently, ie whenever beginning a new project. A bent/dull/damaged needle will cause all kinds of frustration, including failing to pick up the bobbin thread, skipped stitches, or even hitting/damaging the presser foot, needle plate, or hook. A flying piece of needle is not a pleasant experience--and dangerous (wear eye protection)!

What type of needle and where can I buy?


If you buy a "universal" needle at a sewing shop or even at the walmart, it should get you going.

Skipped stitches


Try some Schmetz brand needles, they skip less than any other brand. If that does not solve the problem, you need to have it serviced.

Can you tell me if the pfaff 7570 have to have pfaff needles or can you use any brand?


Hi. Sewing machine needles are completely interchangeable so yes, you can use any brand. Which needle you use will depend on the type and weight of fabric you're sewing. I wrote a Tip about Needles--take a look at that and see if it helps.

What happens if the needle breaks?


Extra needles came in the accessory bag. Just unscrew the screw above the presser foot, remove the old needle and put in a new one. These are common sewing machine needles,but the LS2125 will also handle dual needles. There are numerous videos online that show how to do this.
