You may have heard or read about my approach to knowing what kind of needle is on each of the 15 different positions on my Happy 15 Needle Embroidery Machine. I found some really bold, ugly nail polish and swiped it across each pack to assign that color to that type/size. Then when I put a needle on my machine, I would swipe that color across the top where I could see it but it wouldn’t get rubbed off during the embroidery process. This has worked well for me for quite some time (unless I was in too big a hurry to paint the needle). Unfortunately, it never solved the problem of how long that needle has been on the machine. As I am a Hobbyist with my machine at home, it might be days between my embroidery sessions so the weekly or daily change-out of needles employed in production shops is pretty wasteful in my environment.
Well, why didn’t I think of this!?
