A sewing machine needle takes birth from a coil of high grade carbon steel wire. It is made two at a time. The wire is straightened and cut to the length of two. Though the process looks simple, the wire is required to be heated, pressed and then cooled before we actually take it further. After the wire is cooled, the next step involves making points on both the ends of the needles. This is done by using a grinding stone where the needle is turned repeatedly until the point is fine and even. This process was fairly deadly, as there were always particles of jagged steel and stone dust thrown in the air. This was also the point that decided the quality of the needle.
