    Sewing Machine NeedlesAlong with thread, needles are very important to stitch formation. Manymechanical problems and damage to fabrics can be traced to a bent,damaged, or incorrect size or type needle. Approximately 60% of allneedles made are discarded at some stage of production. When select-ing the correct needle for any sewing project, consider the following:
