Colonial Needle Giveaway and Sewing Maintence

Have you ever been sewing and your machine
starts making a thunking noise?
Thunk, thunk, thunk - seems like
it is really having an issue sewing?
You my friend have a dull needle
and need to replace it.

I recently took my two machines
and had them clean, oiled, and adjusted
for $15 a machine. A group of sewers from our library
called a man and he came to the library
and did machines for 3 hours one after another.
We got a better deal than if we sent our machines out.
A few needed parts and he took those back to his shop.

Speak to your Guild about hosting a clean out!

Once every couple years it is a good idea!


The wonderful people at Colonial Needle sent me
the new Machine NeedlePack II
to try out and give one away to one of you.

I really love mine to store all the
different sizes I have been getting!

Once I start using them I can store them in the pack by type/size!
It came with great chart for choosing the correct needle for the job!

The quilted fabric pack just folds up for easy storage!
With so much to learn about needles it is
nice to have a product that make it easy to identify
the needle once you take it out.

I have one in my pincushion and have no idea what type it is?
How about you?

Have you ever tried to read the writing on a needle?
Almost impossible!


Colonial Needle also makes one of my favorite products ThimblePads! Best thing to use when sewing down a binding!

I am so glad they sent one to giveaway with the Machine NeedlePack II!
You are going to love these to products as much as I do!
Will it be you?

  27. This looks like a great way to organize needles that you have used. I generally stick them back in the original package -- way to the left so I know which are used and which are not.
