Being the proud owner of the brother CS8060 and having resolved a few mild problems with the help of a sweet lady here at PR I now have a new request. Where to buy the needles for CS8060...I cannot find them anywhere on the internet, not at Allbrands or the brother site and I do not have a dealer in my area. Being that my machine is new I don't really need them now but I am one to plan for the future and do not want to wait until a needle breaks and I am then frantic. Oh yes also a small pkg of them came with the machine, but I still would love to know where to buy them.
Any help would be appreciated. Ria

I don't know that machine, but I might be able to help if I knew what specific needles it needs.

Hi Debbie, thanks for the quick reply. The book says that the pkg of needles that came with the machine in a variety of sizes is X58358-051
Twin needle is X59296-051
Also they give these individual numbers
75/11-90/14
65/9-75/11
90/14-100/16 (these are from med to stretch)
75/11-90/14 ball point
90/14-100/16(topstitching)

I have this machine and use Schmetz needles or any generic brand without any problems.

You don't need Brother needles for your machne. Schmetz work great..as do others.Hancocks and Joanns carry them in many varieties.

I wondered about this too, when I got my Brother machine--because the manual very sternly warns you that using a non-Brother twin needle could cause it to break, etc. And it's my understanding that Brother does actually make their own brand of twin needles.

But I took a chance and used Schmetz twin needles, with no problem. (And I use Schmetz brand needles for everything else too. )

I use only schmetz needles now in my Brother 8150 . I didn't have too much luck with other brands, such as missed stitches and breaking thread. The problems stopped immediately using the same exact thread when I put in the Schmetz needle. My mother has the same machine as you and she loves hers.

You know the manual on this machine keeps warning that the machine can break or do injury. when using the twin needle. On one page in the manual says to use only the N foot and another page says to use only the J foot. I mean how confusing can this be to a new owner of this wonderful sm. If not for Tigger on this site who has helped me so much I would have been afraid to even use the twin needle. I ended up using it with the N foot. But I carefully turned the wheel manually and slowly to be sure it did not hit the plate. I wish the mfgs would make better manuals that we could understand. Now I know why my hubby cusses whenever he is trying to follow instructions to put something together. Once we bought a swing with a huge canopy over it and the booklet of instructions in the box was all in chinese....LOL....did we ever have to wing that one...heh heh heh....thanks ladies. Ria
