    Where do get the best deals on needles? I'm looking for the sharp needles, not the ball point. I would like to get them more like in bulk rather then a few packages. The only thing I can get in the small town I live in is ball point.

    Thanks

    Organ needles are the top quality sewing machine needles. I started buying Organ Titanium coated needles. They stay sharp for months of sewing. Superior Threads have a good sales every so often and I stock up on the needles then.

    I buy Organ brand sharps by the 100 on eBay - about $15. Assortments of 100 in different sizes cost a little more.

    They're every bit as good in quality as Schmetz or Klasse', but they don't have the huge variety of different types of needles. (Denim, topstitching, quilting, embroidery, wing, spring, etc.)

    I use them in everything from a two-year-old Futura back to an 1894 treadle and I've never had a problem with them in any machine.
