    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.
