I keep a clip attached to a suction cup (found a places like Staples) on my machine it is located directly over the stitch adjustment lever. It hols the little plactic case containing needle perfectly. When I change the neelde I put the case in the clip. It's very handy>

Clever idea... do you put your used needle back in? or ?? I presently use green painters tape and write on it. On my trusty bernina - not plastic, I write on it in sharpie fine point. cross out, add next needle. When full, a damp cloth and a tiny dab of soft scrub removes all and I can start again. I like your idea.

That's brilliant! I used to just keep the case next to the machine, but they get lost. Love the suction cup idea.
