So I mentioned before I broke my last needle. Thing is, I'm a quilting newbie so I've never had to buy needles before (that one was one of two my MIL gave me).

So I have a couple questions...

I have a Singer Futura II sewing machine - do I have to buy a certain kind or brand of needle? What size is good for piecing and quilting? Any ideas where you can get the best deal?

I like the Schmetz 80/12 for piecing, 90/14 for machine quilting, you can pick them up at your local quilt shop.

And those will work okay with my singer? Looking at them on JoAnn's website right now.

Yes, they are universal

Excellent - thank you SO much.

Going crazy not being able to sew - might have to head out right now and get me some new needles!
