First post-forgive me for any errors.

I have recently found a Singer Mod. 150. I need a new sponge bar and a few needles for it. Can someone offer any tips are where to aquire these and perhaps some tips to get started on this machine? I have done some searching and found a place that sells Singer SK150 needles. Will these work? I'm totally confused about what the SK means. Help a newbie with anything else I might need to know and dont realize yet!

They should be the same- I have the Singer 150 and have been told it was just marketed under a different name. Sharron

You might try Angelika's Yarn Store LLC, 500 N. Dodgion Street, Independence, MO 64050 www.yarn-store.com (they were the cheapest I found although not what I would consider cheap LOL). I believe there is a store in Philadelphia, PA also but the name eludes me at this time. You can find sponge bars all over the Internet for almost any machine - you shouldn't necessarily buy the cheapest - check them out first - some folks will literally send you a piece of cut sponge rubber.

Good morning....For ALL my knitting machine services I use Needle-tek. They are in Washington. It would be rare if they didn't have what you need. I have the SK 155 and I really love this machine. The website is http://needle-tek.com/. The owners are Jerry and Bea..You might want to call instead of email. They are really busy all the time. The number is: 360-892-2304. They are the greatest and they do GREAT repairs if anyone should need a machine repaired.

SK150 is a 9mm steel machine. The LK150 is a plastic 6.5mm machine.

Hong Kong Knitting is a great source for our machines. I have made several purchases from them and never been unhappy. The shipping price is figured into the item so you don't have to worry about that. He also sells on eBay, he used to use the name Sunny Choi or something like that. If you purchase from his site you will pay a little less than you would on eBay.
