When should I replace my sewing machine needle?
So, how often should you change your needle? It’s recommended that you change your needle every 3 full bobbins or every 2 pre-wound bobbins used, as well as after each project or if you’re working with a fabric that naturally dulls the needle, such as leathers or heavy fleece.

What kind of needle do you use to sew leather?

Medium-sized needles, such as the 80/12 and 90/14, are ideal for quilting cotton fabric, lightweight upholstery, denim, silk dupioni, and other fabrics of similar weight. The needle’s eye is sized for general sewing threads like all-purpose polyester and 50-weight cotton.
Do I need a walking foot to sew leather?
You can solve this problem by using the right sewing machine foot: a teflon (also known as an ultraglide foot) or a roller foot. Do not use a walking foot with leather.
