Sewing Machine Needles Don’t Last Forever!!!
The needle is not a permanent machine part.
Needles get dull from use. Needles are meant to be changed.
Clues to Changing the Needle - Shredding or broken threads - - Skipped stitches - - Puckered or damaged fabrics - - Wiggly squiggly seams - - Popping, clicking or clunking sound -
