Needles That Fit All Sewing Machines

by Kelsi Watts: There is no such thing as a needle that fits all sewing machines. Sewing machine needles come in a range of sizes and types, and each sewing machine is designed to use needles of a specific size and type.

This is because the size and type of needle that a sewing machine uses is determined by the size and design of the machine's hook and bobbin, as well as the type of fabric and thread being used.

Using the wrong size or type of needle can cause damage to the sewing machine and result in poor stitching quality.

It is important to consult the manufacturer's instructions for your sewing machine to determine the correct size and type of needle to use, and to use only needles that are specifically designed for your machine.
