Titanium needles?

Have you heard of titanium needles for your sewing machine?  My friend Pat (Life's a Stitch) told me about them so when I was at the quilt show recently, I bought myself a package and finally had a chance to try them out.

OMG.  They are amazing.
Either that, or the oil I put on my machine made a huge difference!!
Just wondering if anyone else has tried them and likes them?

So far, I'm sold on them!

Love to you all,


  1. Never tried them, but sounds like something I need to check out.
    Are you home already or haven't left yet?

  2. I use these needles on all my machine embroidery. I have used them for a couple of years...maybe more. I love them. Are you using them for embroidery or regular sewing? Just curious...if you are maybe I am the one missing!

  3. I've used them for about a year. They're advertized to last about 5 times longer than regular steel needles and I've found that to be true. The titanium coating seems to stay sharper longer. The only thing I would caution is that they shatter rather than break, or so I've been told. I haven't broken one yet. (I bent one rather badly, but it didn't shatter.)

  4. I use titanium needles when I machine applique. They are very sharp and don't leave big holes in your fabric. They do shatter when they break so you need to be careful when moving your fabric as you work.

  5. My embroidery teacher told me about these needles! She really likes them BUT she told the class, when they break - it is shocking loud and they BREAK!!! Lots of pieces!! So, since I do not break needles often, I just might have to give these 'new to me' needles, a try!!

  6. no I haven't tried them next time I am out I will have to buy a package to try them out
    thanks for telling us about them
