Needle systems used by industrial sewing machines. Organized by manufacturer and model

Our Sewing Machine Needle Use Guide helps you find and buy the right needle for your industrial sewing machine. It lists thousands of machines and models and the Groz-Beckert needle systems that work with each model. It also shows compatible needles from other manufacturers.

Using the right needle is important because bad things happen when you use the wrong needle. If you are lucky, the needle will just not fit; if you can make the needle fit it is likely that it will damage your machine or work.

Needle packets, like the one on the left, show the needle system. Up to now, a lost packet meant calling the dealer or manufacturer. Our Sewing Machine Needle Use Guide lets you find and buy your needles on the spot.

Home / Domestic Machines - Our guide is for industrial sewing machines. Manufacturers like Babylock, Bernina, Brother, Consew, Husqvana-Viking, Janome, Juki, Pfaff, Simplicity, and Singer make machines for the home / domestic sewers. These machines use universal, flat shank (see below) needles. They are called Groz-Beckert 130 / 705 or HAx1 or 15x1 needles

Our Sewing Machine Needle Use Guide is organized by manufacturer and ranges of models. Scroll down to the manufacturer, click on a model range, and then locate the needle system for your model. Remember, we only show needle systems for industrial machines. Click here for domestic / home sewing machines that use flat shank needles.
