How often should I change my needle on my embroidery machine?

Osman Bayrak

There is no set schedule for changing needles. Applications for embroidery machines are very broad, making set time schedules for needle changing difficult. Also, sewing speeds on embroidery machines are relatively low compared to other sewing machines, reducing the need for routine changing. The best indication of when to change the needle is when its performance begins to fall off. A good rule of thumb - if a particular needle breaks threads more than once during a run, replace the needle.
