From The Repair Department"
Did you know, Sewing machine needles don’t last forever. How do you know when it’s time to change your
needle? Every 8 hours, every garment. Embroidery, if designs are dense, don't wait till you hear a clicking noise!!! Really they are pennies a piece compared to a repair on the machine hook or bobbin case replacement!!! not to mention the quality of your stitches!!! not sew good!
