    Just a machine needle reminder

    I just wanted to remind you all to make sure your needle is properly pushed all the way up in the holder. A friend of mine had to take her machine in for repairs because the didn't have it properly installed. Not trying to be bossy but every once in awhile we do need a gentle reminder... Happy Quilting...

    Thank you for the reminder. Also make sure to tighten it enough. I was in a hurry the other day and did not do it tight enough and the needle fell out. Lucky for me it did no damage to my machine.

    Thanks for the reminder! I don't have a problem with my sewing machines; but I have a big problem with getting my serger needles pushed all the way in.

    Thanks for the reminder. We all forget to check sometimes.

    Thank you for the reminder. I use my serger tweezers sometimes to make extra sure the needle is in all the way.
