    A package of these came with my new Pfaff I just got. They seem to work fine.

    Jackie: Here is a link for the Inspira Needles. They are the only needles my new Viking seems to like. But I just made 16 cosmetic bags in the hoop with the SAME needle going through fabric, Soft & Stable, ribbon and stabilizer. And that included doing all the quilting as well. No problem at all, never broke, never even slowed down. It is a titanium needle and they are good for more than 100,000 stitches. The regular (non-titanium) needles are good for 10,000 stitches. I'm loving them so far. I used to use Organ needles and I know even their titanium needle would not have made it this long. Anyhoo, here is the link:
    Good Luck, Toni

    I know my Viking store carries the Inspira needles for their machines. I still have so many of the Schmetz needles I doubt I'll ever have to buy more in my life time.

    I haven't tried Inspira since I have a fairly large stash of Schmetz and Organ needles (yes, I AM a sewing supply hoarder and proud of it). If I run low on a particular needle, I may try them though.

    Inspira needles are the same needles as Klasse. Both brands are sold for Pfaff and Husqvarna machines. I like them a lot and use them almost exclusively due to their lower cost and equal performance to Schmetz.

    So here's the truth about Inspira needles. When SVP - the parent company that owns Singer, (husqvarna) Viking & Pfaff (& white) - bought Singer -- the singer "name" was/is owned by another company that is in no way, shape or form connected to the Singer sewing products that we all know & love from the USA. The Singer name has been sold - over & over. Current SINGER machines have ABSOLUTELY ZERO connection to the original company. Because a different company owns the singer NAME for the notions end of the business, SVP could not continue to sell the needles as "singer" so SVP created the name "Inspira". Inspira needles are standard household sewing machine needles with a flat back & will work just fine with 99% of domestic household sewing machines. They are similar to Schmetz, Organ, Kassel, or any other brand. If you want authentic "singer" needles (for whatever reason) choose Inspira. This is info given to me from SVP

    I'd never heard of these before. So I looked it up on Google images. When the package has the 130/705 H configuration on it, it should fit all of our machines that take a "regular" needle. And they do. They should work just fine.

    I love these needles. I have less problems with them because the center of the eye is more curved so the thread doesn't shred on it. I don't understand these machines that don't like certain threads or needles. As much as I paid for my machines it better like whatever I give it. This being said, certain sizes of thread requires certain sizes of needles. Sometimes I may have to play with where I sit my spool of thread but my Vikings/Kenmore/Janomes and Brother takes all that I give them.
