    Needles for Singer 306W

    In past few years I have only been able to find needle for my 306 W in one size. Anyone know of a source that has more than size 13 needles for this machine? This is a shorter needle than many of the singers take the original needle package ( my mom saved everything... luckily) is a 206 needle ( the shorter length).

    Same here. BUT I did do some searching and found Ed's blog:
    http://sewing-machines.blogspot.com/...n-needles.html

    Now I am off to Allbrands to see if I can find the 206X13 needles in sizes 12,14 and 16 he mentions.

    Caroline,

    All Brands carry size 11 and 14 I think. They discontinued the size 16s. I've found that Organ shows various sizes of the 206-13 needles, but I've not yet found anyone who sells them.

    If you run across a good source of these needles, please post it.

    Bit country-specific, but W C Jacksons (Sewparts) carries 12s, 14s and 16s at a good price. They're Schmetz needles.
