How to Care for Your Sewing Machine

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 they 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.
