Q : I have a few ball point needles and they have gotten mixed up with my universal needles. Is there any way to tell them apart. If it helps they are singer brand needles for home sewing machine. - Preeti (4 years ago)
A :

It is difficult to differentiate between the different sewing needles unless there is color coding.  May be you could try sewing on scraps of stretchy fabrics and check.

A :

Schmetz home sewing needles are compatible with all Electric home sewing machines [table top].
