When should I replace my needles?

Replacing Needles

Needles can lose their finish over time and damage fabric. Experiment with the different finishes available to find the one that lasts longest and works best for you. Don't hesitate to throw out wornout needles that are loosing their finish and/or are bent. Needles are inexpensive and the better needles you use the easier it will be on your hands and your finished piece!
