    purchasing machine needles in bulk

    Does anyone know where to purchase Schmetz sewing machine needles in bulk at a reasonable price? The company I used to purchase needles from no longer sells them. And buying needles in those small packages gets quite expensive over time. Thanks.

    I recently received an email from redrockthreads.com about 100 needle packages of Schmetz needles. Here's the link.

    When I last bought a box of 100 needles (admittedly, several years ago) I am pretty sure I paid less than $40. Oh, for the good old days! I will most likely purchase needles from Red Rock; I already buy Aurifil thread from them. But I sure wish I could find needles cheaper than that! Thanks for the input.

    Wow - JHLittle is a much better deal. Thanks for the reminder. And they sell Aurifil too.

    Well, thanks, WandaVA - I just ordered needles from J. Hittle. Didn't find the bargain you found (I was looking for Micro-Tex sharps) but still the best price I had seen anywhere. And they also have Aurifil thread; not much less expensive than RedRock but at least I won't be paying shipping on two different orders. That place has a ton of stuff I would like to have; I am sure I will be going back again soon. Thanks again.

    Sun, I noticed the specialty needles were higher priced. The universal needles were 14.95 or thereabouts. I agree with you, lots of stuff I'd like to have to. Thanks for asking the question.

    What is J. Hittle's shipping charge? I can't find anything on their website.

    jhittle charges $6.70 shipping on all orders under $100.
    over $100 is free shipping.

    they are where i buy all of my needles.
    if you sign up for their weekly newsletter and read it through every week you will stumble across all sorts of bargains. the needles go on sale several times a year, so you save even more if you catch it.
