This is a reminder post to clean your sewing machine.
All too often this gets neglected until there is a problem or obvious build up. I was one of those people who just kept on sewing – never hanging the needle until it broke or I had issue, even if I had multiple needles on hand!
Make a habit to give the bobbin area a quick dust out whenever you change a bobbin. Wipe down the machine itself beforehand and after each use, especially if you don’t cover it.
If a quick clean becomes a regular habit each time you sit down to sew, projects will run smoother and you may find less issues overall.
And change your needle!
