    Today I was given a pack of Inspira needles at a shop's promotion. Does anyone use these? I read an old post that said her Janome rejected them. I have a Janome and want to know whether I should try these needles or not? Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    I have not used them, but I doubt they would hurt your machine. I use Organ needles, never hear of those, but, boy do they work great!

    I use those in my viking. I got a free pack with my Viking, they seem the same as Organ. But i am not 100 percent sure.

    a rep from the local sewing machine shop spoke at our guild a couple of weeks ago and her report on the Inspira needles was very positive. They have been selling Schmetz needles for several years because of their high quality but she reported that the INspira were not only better quality, but a lot cheaper. I've not tried any myself since my "stash" of needles is so large!

    I've always used Schmetz needles just because those were the ones I could find in different sizes and kinds that didn't cost an arm and a leg....will have to check these Inspira needles out! Does anyone know where they can be purchased??? :lol:

    That was me. I wouldn't. I don't know why they didn't work but I thought I had a bad needle or something and put a different 1 in and ended up having to take my machine to the shop. It was nicking the bobbin case. Please don't use them in your Janome :thumbdown:

    Inspira needles are now recommended rather than Schmetz needles by the Husqvarna dealers. I've used mine and see nothing wrong with them.

    One place to buy good needles is Sears. Many forget most Sears stores sells a few sewing supplies. They aren't cheaper but at least they are there.

    Thanks,all, for your answers. I will wait until I have nothing else before using them unless I take a chance one brave day. The store I got them from is a local shop that specializes in machines.
