When I bought My new Singer Futura XL-400 about 6 months ago the sales person recommended that I buy "Titanium" embroidery needles to use with my new machine. Well , when I set up the machine it already came with an embroider needle in it,so I started using the embroidery machine the way it was set up after I had embroidered 8-44,567 designs the machine started skipping stitches, so I stopped, cleaned and oiled as recommended by singer and put one of my new "titanium"embroidery needles in the machine. After maybe 20 or so stitches the needle broke!!!!!!!! So I put in a new needle that came with the machine, long story short , embroidered as before. Have any of you had any experience, with "titanium Embroidery Needles" they are a little high dollar for something that dossen't work very well?
Thanks for any help you may have, Maggie,,
