Okay, it's been four years (I know that it's a major sin) since my machine and I last spoke to one another.  How often do you change titanium needles when sewing?  with embroidery?  I'm finally retired, I gave myself a Pfaff Creative Vision as a retirement gift, and we want to get to know each other really well.  Thanks, everyone.  =

You deserve it. Congratulations on your retirement and your Pfaff.

I have an older CV, one of the ones with a few kinks, and I have found that I have fewer thread breakages when I use a titanium *quilting* needle for embroidery. Before I switched to this needle style I had thread breakages sometimes as often as every hundred stitches, with several different needle types and sizes (embroidery, top stitching, metallica) and almost every kind of thread in the known universe. Don't know how often to change--I don't seem to have needed to yet. But I do mostly very light-density embroidery on garments, not the jillion-satin-stitch pictures. Does anybody out there know what embroidery symptoms call for a needle change?

Happy sewing!

Nancy

I wonder if the people at Nancy's notions could answer your question. I do know tey are supposed to be very durable. Titanium is the metal of joice when bones need a strong repair.( just thought I'd throw that in.)
