It is important to keep your machine workings clean of lint and dust that just seems to accumulate…..
So Let’s Clean!
What you need:
In your machine tools you should be able to find these: a brush and a screw driver
Make sure the machine is turned off.
Remove the Bobbin Cover
Make sure the needle is wound to its highest point (or now might be a good time to replace it) and remove the Foot out of the way.
Take a screw driver and remove the screw holding the Face Plate.
You can already see dust!
Remove the Bobbin
and then the Bobbin Casing
Now we really see the mess!
Take your brush – I always say if you needed a vacuum cleaner it would be in your tool kit – and brush away!
and check down anywhere you can see
and the other side
Even on the Feed Dogs
That looks better! Now I’m pointing at an arrow that shows us how to replace the Casing
There is another arrow on the Casing
When they are facing each other, we know it is in the correct position
Replace the Face Plate
Tighten the screw
Replace the bobbin, the bobbin cover and the foot
Give the outside of the machine a wipe over with a soft cloth and
now you are ready to start your sewing in the new year!
‘HAPPY NEW YEAR’
