It’s that time of year when we open the windows, clear out the clutter and begin to clean our personal space but what about our machines? With each stitch, small fibers break off and build up on the inside of our machines. Overtime, these fibers can cause havoc under the hood of our machines. So, it’s important to take a few minutes and clear these out.
Not only will a few extra minutes keep our machines purring like kittens every time we turn them on but basic sewing machine maintenance can extend the life of our machines.
Not sure where to begin? The Sewing Loft has a great step by step tutorial for general maintenance.
So consider this our Public Service Announcement to you and be sure to check under the hood to clear out those dust bunnies!
