Why I change needles so often

The needle on the right has just come out of my machine, the one to the left is a new needle. Hopefully you can see the used needle now has a completely blunt tip. The needle had only been in the machine since this morning and at the moment I am running the machine fairly slowly. Repeatedly punching through a quilt is really hard on needles.

Amazing, I don't think people realise how blunt the needles get, this is a great picture.

Incredible. It really brings home the point that needles have to be changed regularly.
