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 . 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.) (size 14) needles in stock.

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

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.

Kenmore 19233 computerized sewing machine

On my machine I find that my bottom and top free motion stitches are more uniform when I set my needle thread tension at 8 or 9. Also, you might want to use a top stitch needle.

Good luck,
