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.
