No pictures, just words. Question time?
How often do you change your sewing machine needle?
Obviously it depends on fabric, however I try to change mine for regularly machining approximately 6 hours of use.
Its all the FMQ & quilting I am doing of late that has me pondering this issue. Would an hour of quilting be too often, after all its a lot of extra work on the needle.
On the Schmetz website, they say anywhere between one minute and a month. Yes I have had instant needle breakage with new one too. Ultimately they recommend checking sharpness every hour.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this common sewing issue.
Until next time
Happy Stitching ❤ Debbierose
