You can go online and buy it anywhere from $50-refurbished or new for $89. Depending on your sewing skill, if new buy from someplace like JoAnn's who give lessons on your machine, it usually is not that much more expensive but at least you have support and understand your machine. The choice is yours.

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.

All About Needles

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjixZv7tYfOAhVEYiYKHZRIAGEQFggkMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.schmetzneedles.com%2Flearning%2Fpdf%2Fschmetz-needle-chart.pdf&usg=AFQjCNHTR52AmqwzvyCjbXmD5Ch52Va5_Q

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)!

Which machine shud i buy........................what is machanical sewing............my budget is Rs.7000-8000.


a mechanical sewing machine has only knobs & dials
a computerized has a LCD screen-some screens are large & some are small,,a lot of people like computerized or electronic- because they are push buttons,,
I personally have a mechanical sewing machine & a electronic or computerized sewing machine
I use both to make clothes & quilts, my husband which does quilting like the electronic machine better, cause it's push button.
when I make buttonholes I use the electronic sewing machine because it does it in one step automatically
there are a lot of advantages to the electronic sewing machine, push button, one step buttonhole,
needle threader, decorative stitches, the stitch length & stitch width are push button selection
when you get a sewing machine make sure it has a manual with it,,that's very important,,it will tell you the different functions of the machine & how to do the setting.
as far as brand of sewing machine, I've owned singer, babylock, brother, necchi, machines, there are good & bad in any brand, when you buy one if it doesn't work when you take it out of the box & start sewing--take it back & get another one--cause machine should be ready to sew when you take it out of the box
happy sewing

Hi i want to buy a sewing machine wich one is best. kenmore or brothers sewing machine


Hi,

I would prefer Kenmore, enmore makes perhaps the largest selection of mechanical machines. The very cheapest Kenmore sewing machines, like the Kenmore Mini (*est. $100) and Kenmore 15208 (*est. $120), stick with a four-step buttonhole, and have just six and eight stitches, respectively. The Kenmore 15212 (*est. $150) and Kenmore 15218 (*est. $170) both have a one-step buttonhole. The cheaper Kenmore 15212 has 12 stitches. The slightly more expensive model has 18 stitches, including a smocking stitch, overcast and elastic stretch stitch in addition to the basics. Both Kenmore sewing machines are good, basic models, say reviews. Both have just a 90-day warranty, however. Bear in mind that Kenmore sewing machines are made by different Asian companies each year, resulting in varying degrees of quality; this also explains the low prices. Some users report difficulty with tension and light fabrics.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Want to buy a new sewing mechine for own and commercial use


If you sew well and use to a strong industrial machine get a Juki DDL8700 series, it's a well investment. But if it's a regular portable home machine white brand is good enough. Maybe you can buy the one with more than just a straight stitches, just for fun. If you are new to sewing make sure whatever sewing machine you buy it come with a manuals. Good luck!

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.
