There are some places on e-bay where you can buy a box of 100 needles.....I bought singer type to use on my kenmores 100 for 20 dollars :wink:

Wow! Thanks! I think I'll check that out! I was sewing a rag quilt with demin and I guess my needle just wasn't big enough because they kept breaking...so I'm off to find me some needles! Thanks!

You can buy any amount and get "wholesale" price. I've used them several times and they are a great company!!

Hi just read your post, you can get special needles for sewing denim. Ask for them instead, because the denim is so thick it pays to get the stronger ones.

I used the jeans needles and worked great. No more broken needles.
