How to sew #2 Changing a needle

Knowing how to change a needle is crucial. If you're working with the same needle that came with your machine you probably need to switch it for a shiny new one. Shoddy dull needles are bad news. They can snag your fabric, cause skipped stitches, or make the thread break. All of which are super frustrating.

It's also important to note that there are specific needles that should be used with certain fabrics. Choosing the right needle is important as the wrong needle will/can cause the same sort of irritating problems that I mentioned earlier.

Replacing a needle is pretty darn simple. So simple that the pictures mostly speak for themselves.
