You asked: What causes sewing machine needles to break?

If your needle gets too bent, it can hit your feed dogs, throat plate, or bobbin case, and break. To avoid bending your needle, try to slow down while you’re sewing or use a sharper needle. Sewing machine needles also have natural flaws or burs that happen during manufacturing.
