From where can i buy elna sewing machine needels? Pleace.


Consult your owner's manual for the size needles your machine takes. Usually, it is 130/705 needles.

If so, you can purchase this size from most any fabric, sewing repair shops, or online vendors. There are many manufacturers who make needles, ie Schmetz, Organ, Klasse, as well as Singer. Schmetz is readily available most places in the US. (IMHO, Singer needles are made more specifically for Singer sewing machines and may not work as well on a non-Singer machine. Most Singer machine manuals recommend using only Singer needles and some sewists have experienced problems when using a different brand.) You may have to experiment with brands if you have any problems with a specific manufacturer brand.

However, there is much more to choosing needles for your machine than the size and brand. The most important choices are to choose needles that suit the thread & fabric you will be sewing. Be sure to read up on the needle types (from smallest 65/9 to heavier 110/18) and the design/shape that will work best for you, ie sharps (for woven fabric) or ball-point (for knits), quilting, topstitch, embroidery, microtex, stretch, denim, universal, leather, etc.
"The European metric sizing system for sewing machine needles is numbered from 60 to 110. The American sizing system is numbered from 8 to 18. For both sizing systems, the lower the number the finer the needle and the higher the number the larger the needle. Most needle companies show both sizes on the package." (quote from Singer)

In addition, if your machine is capable, you may also be able to use twin, triple needles, wing, wedge point needles. The following will be helpful when you make your purchasing choices:

I am having a difficult time finding pressure feet for my Singer 4562 such as button hole, button sewing, embroidery, walking foot, quilting foot, etc.


You should be able to find presser feet for your machine as long as you know what type of shank your machine takes. Just confirm that whatever you choose will fit a Singer model 4562. You can even purchase a snap-on shank adapter and then purchase snap-on feet for your machine.

Need to locate a source of blue tipped sewing machine needles. the manual in euro-pro denim machine states needles are best for mending and other fabrics.


Schmetz make a blue coated needle, usually best for denim fabrics as the coating aids the needle in slipping between tightly woven fibres such as denim. It may also be called a Denim needle.

But you shouldn't need to use that needle for most fabrics, just the most appropriate sized needle and either sharp point for wovens or ball point for knits. Perhaps get a mixed pack of both sharps and ball points to start with.

Try this website if you want to shop for needles on line, http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-needles.aspx they carry a wide range of types, sizes and brands. Klasse and Schmetz are both high quality needle brands. You want the 130/705H system of needles for your domestic sewing machine. These are the norm for 99% of domestic sewing machines.

There are other needle systems for industrial machines (round tops) and EL705 for overlockers, these are extra long but identical shank design at the top. So just make sure you get the regular needles 130/705H.

In terms of what size to use, here is good reference guide on sewing machine needles.
http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/Needle-Sizes.--94.htm
The important thing is to change the needle for each new project, ie about 4-6 sewing hours, as a blunt needle will never give good results. If you always start with a new one, and its the right sized needle for the fabric you are sewing, then you should ensure best possible stitching results from your machine.
If the needle is too big, it will leave holes in the fabric, too small and it will break. If you use a sharp point on stretch fabrics, you'll get skipped stitches. If you sew a lycra knit with a ballpoint and it still skips, then change to a "Stretch" needle, this will also be blue coated ballpoint and helps with skipping and needle deflection.

Then there is twin needles, twin stretch needles, winged needles and leather needles, all for special techniques. Never worth trying to scrimp on needles, I have probably have in excess of 40 packs of different sizes and types in my sewing cabinet.

Hope this helps you out.

I have a white sewing machine model 415 and cant find needles to fit the machine


Hi. Sewing machine needles are standard sizes, so you shouldn't have a problem finding needles to fit. You use different size needles depending on what weight and type of fabric you plan to sew (I posted a chart that explains what size needle to use with what fabric).
What do you want to sew?
