How to Care for Your Sewing Machine

Sep 21, 2012
Article Image
Everyone can do regular home maintenance on his or her sewing machine. Once practiced, it is easy and quick. Regular home maintenance should be performed after every 10 hours of actual sewing time. Think of home maintenance as brushing your teeth and flossing. They’re vital to your health and well-being but do not take the place of going to the dentist. Here, Jim Jacobson teaches you six simple steps to keep your sewing machine running at its best. You’ll learn how to use the basic service tools used in the industry and how to inspect, clean, oil, and adjust tensions on your machine. It is a rewarding and enjoyable process that fosters self-reliance, saves time and money, and extends the life and functionality of your machine. from Threads #163

    I had no problems downloading & opening. My web browser always does a virus scan before downloading. I would try to use a different web browser. I use Chrome & Opera. Some websites work better in certain browsers. You may need to update your browser too or update your pdf reader. The article was very informative. I really liked it.

    Downloaded and opened in seconds with no problems. I have very good antivirus and none were found.

    Looks great, I'm now off to read it in details with a cuppa.

    Good article with some great tips beyond what my manual showed me. Very clear and easy to understand. Opened fine on my iPad.

    Still can't open it. Ugh.

    My computer virus protection (AVG)found a Trojan Horse Virus on every page of this article. You may not want to open it unless you have a good virus protection running on your computer.
