I have seen designs using a winged needle and was wondering if these needles be used in any embroidery machine.

Thanks for all the information, I will check with my dealer just to be safe.

I agree with anne55. You need to have a throat plate and foot that allows for the wider needle. If you don't currently one for your machine, then I would check with the dealer to make sure your machine allows for the needle and/or if they can order you a different throat plate and foot. Better safe than sorry.

I'd check the throat plate and embroidery foot. If you aren't sure, ask the dealer you purchased your machine from or ask on the manufacturer's website.

They are so pretty.. I believe you can also run these designs just using a standard needle with just a little less effect.
My brother innovis 700 will take the wing needle
but my brother PR600 will not :-)

No you can't. I have a Janome MC300E and the hole in the plate for the needle is not wide enough. You will have to have a look at the needle, which has "wings" on each side, and see if it will go into the opening of the plate.

I use a wing needle in my Janome machines & have seen the same one used in Bernina. I think it is pretty well standard size. The design itself is digitized differently, mostly heirloom style. Very pretty on linens.
