There has been much talk about the new generation of "chrome plated" or "titanium" sewing machine needles; they are advertised as lasting longer than traditional sewing machine needles. After extensive research with chrome/titanium coated needles, we have found absolutely no evidence whatsoever that these more expensive needles are any better than standard sewing machine needles. Sewing machine needles are meant to wear out, they must be replaced frequently for optimal results. We suggest investing your money in replacing standard sewing machine needles frequently and pass on the marketing gimmicks of chrome and titanium needles.
