Preventing Broken Or Bent Sewing Machine Needles

  • Clean and oil the machine per manufacturer directions and make sure throat plate is properly aligned.
  • If you use pins to hold your fabric, pull the pins before the fabric goes under the foot. Pins are the number one cause of needle breakage.

  • Buy a better grade needle.
  • If all else fails, take it in and have the timing checked.

I've seen many students break and bend needles by using the wrong size for the fabric they are trying to sew, and by trying to pull the fabric through as the needle is moving through the fabric.
