How Long Does a Needle Last?

The general rule of thumb is to change the needle every six (6) to eight (8) hours, BUT who “times” their sewing time? No one! Better to rephrase the question and ask what are the clues to changing the needle?

  • Threads break or shred
  • Stitches skip
  • Fabrics pucker or become damaged
  • Wiggly squiggly stitches
  • Sewing machine makes clicking, popping or clunking sound


Familiar with any of these situations... it's time to change your needle!
