Absolute Sewing in Hastings Hawkes Bay offers a range of high quality Janome sewing machine needles that perfectly complement our sewing machines. When it comes to accessories for sewing and stitching, few tools are as important and functional as the sewing needle. If you’re sewing along at 600 stitches per minute, your needle is piercing the fabric TEN times per second. It’s no wonder a worn needle can cause problems for your machine. You should always start each new project with a new needle. Even better, you should choose the brand of needle engineered for your machine.
