How many stitches on a titanium needle?
Wondering if I should change after each design

I'm just getting back into embroidery after over five years. In fact, this is the first I've embroidered on my 730 since my guide class

I'm sewing a design that has over 18000 stitches, and I need to make two more of them (nothing like last minute placemats for Christmas dinner...). Can I get all three out of one needle, or should I change in between?

Thanks!

I wouldn't generally change out after 18000 stitch design, in design terms that's probably about average.

Its probably a good rule to change for each project. When I was into embroidery that would mean about every 75-100,000 stitches.
