Refer to your manual to be sure you purchased the correct needle. If they are the Singer brand, then you are okay.

Refer to the manual to be sure of the installation. On some machines the flat side of the needle shaft faces to the back of the machine and on others, to the left side.

The front of a sewing machine needle has a long groove down the shaft and this is what helps feed the thread through the eye and form a proper stitch.

Singer 306k Machine was working bery well then needle broke and I cant get the needle to line up with the bobbin case Tried reading manual 100 times Becoming frustrated Pls help


fit the needle correctly as too far up will tilt the needle when you tighten the collar up
there is a stop but it is not very noticeable
turn the machine over by hand (no thread) and see where the needle is hitting the bobbin case. the needle /hook timing may have altered
to check that the eye of the needle should be just below the hook as it reaches the needle
to adjust you will have to take it to a service center.
the needle goes in with the grooved side facing the thread and the cut away bit facing the hook of the bobbin

Bobbins for singer 306k sewing machine


You can find your bobbin--as well as your bobbin case and other accessories and parts--at Sewing Parts Online. Just select Singer parts on the left hand side, and enter your model number in the search box, and it will take you right there. They also sell the foot pedal, needle plate, and a lot of other parts for your machine as well.

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.
