Machine Tune-ups

Hello Friends,

I got my sewing machine back – Yay… it wasn’t too bad, it just needed a little TLC… But now it’s running nice and smooth – it’s a happy stitcher again AND so am I!!! :-)

Keeping your sewing machine clean is important, but so are regular
tune-ups. I clean my sewing machine every two to three days, depending on what I am working on… Plan on getting your machine serviced at least once a year if you put a lot of hours on it. If you sew infrequently, you can stretch it out to 1.5 to 2 years between tune-ups.  Happy Sewing!!



  1. Wow I never knew that about a sewing machine! Wishing you a lovely weekend and Happy Halloween!

  2. Oh yes, it's very important to keep your machine clean... It also depends on how frequent you quilt on it - regular sew is OK, but it's quilting with the batting that get's inside the machine and needs to be cleaned out.
