Upon showing me the difference, he highlighted to me that there are many fake Singer needles in the market. And he showed me a whole range of fake needles and I'm surprised there were so many and I bought some before from the sewing shop thinking that "who wanna sell fake Singer needles?".
Look at the S logo.
The left packet is showing the entire head and the head on the right packet got cut off?
And notice there is a Singer button at the middle red strip?
A packet of original Golden Singer needles is rm10. And you know.. Some of the smaller Singer outlets are also selling fakes. I bought some bobbins from a Singer outlet before and it gave me so many problems and I didn't know that the bobbin was giving me problem until I showed it to the ppl and they told me its fake although there were Singer Logo printed on it.
Aih... This is crazy. Even needles have pirated ones nowadays. So don't think cheap and small stuff like this wont have pirated ones. It will affect your time and sewing outcome so look properly before buy ya :)
