This is a component in a sewing machine. It is something which "grabs" the needle. I just can't find the right Chinese term for this. Can someone heeeelp????

Though this is a "guess", it is certainly a good spark for me! I thought a grabber grabs the cloth!! I did some research on my client's products and it seems that "grabber" indeed might be for the needle. Anyway, I will ask for clarifications from my clients... hope they won't sew my mouth up!

Kevin...!!!!! I am still sewwwwwwwwwwwwing!! Becoming the "Little Seamstress" soon!!
