I tried replacing the one needle that broke, only to have many others break straight away, so I renewed all the needles as the others were quite old but even so I have already broken one of the new needles. I've checked that they are all seated correctly, the pleater turns easily when there is no fabric in it so I don't think it is they way I am putting the needles in. I used light fabric which the house of smocking kindly provided so it was not the fabric that was at fault. I wonder if all the needles are as sharply pointed as they should be.
For older machines, it is always best to supply an old original needle for me to match as needles changed when newer models came out.

Needles were purchased to replace those in an old machine. Following advice, these proved to be perfect for the task. Fast, efficient service!
