Changing needle with heavy embroidery?

I was having a lot of problems with the threader, so I changed the needle often trying to get it to work.  Does anyone have recommendations for how often to change it?

When you were embroidering the hoop sisters how often did you change your needle after all that intense embroidery

Well that’s why I thought embroidery was included in the on time, because I embroidered for hours when I was doing Hoopsisters, but the machine only showed 8 hours.  I guess I was spending hours changing the thread, lol!

I mean the embroidery registers as machine on time, not as sewing, right?

Registering an opinion, Jim says:
Sewing time means any time the needle of the machine has been going up and down, whether that be doing embroidery or sewing. Power time is measured as how long the machine has been powered on. Typically it will be many times more than sewing time.

Yes, Cas, Embroidery time counts as I have a lot of sewing hours and most of those were from doing a HoopSisters quilt when I first got my 15000. I think I had 37 hours of embroidery in a few weeks.
