GETTING READY

Replacing the Needle

This section provides information on sewing machine needles.

Needle precautions

Be sure to observe the following precautions concerning the handling of the needle. Failure to observe these
precautions is extremely dangerous, for example, if the needle breaks and fragments are dispersed. Be sure to
read and carefully follow the instructions below.
CAUTION
Only use home sewing machine needles. Use of any other needle may bend the needle or
damage the machine.
Never use bent needles. Bent needles can easily break, possibly resulting in injuries.
