A few tips for maintaining your sewing machine

  • Keep your machine clean and covered

Household sewing machines are easy to store, so they can be kept anywhere in the house, but like other devices, they quickly become covered in dust. Particles can get inside the machine and spoil it, so it is advisable to keep the machine covered when not in use and clean it every time after finishing the job.

The needles do the maximum job, so it is essential to keep changing them at intervals as they become dull and cause stitch skipping as well as thread loops. They should be changed each time you finish working on the machine or on a project.

A well-oiled machine always runs smoothly, and even sewing machines benefit from regular oiling. Oiling the parts of the machine will help it run, choke, faster and for a longer period of time.

  • High quality wires and spools

Particular attention should be paid when choosing threads for a home sewing machine. High quality threads are best for these machines as they prevent lint from forming on the sewn fabrics and also for the device. Bobbin cases should also be industrial grade so that they do not break easily and cause machine running problems when sewing.
