Machine TLC

Quilting is a messy business - seriously!

My "bobbin almost empty" message stopped appearing on the screen which could only mean 1 thing (well 2 things, but I don't even want to contemplate number 2). It meant the sensor wasn't sensing.

I opened it up and pulled out this pile of fluffy stuff.

Impressive, no? Especially considering I cleaned it out only a few weeks ago.

So I thought I'd ask - Have you given your sewing machine a little bit of TLC lately?



PS I {heart} my iPhone. It's so great for quick, spur of the moment, blog posts :-)

  6. Oooh, a few foofy gremlins in your bobbin casing. I must be anal because I clean it with every bobbin change.

  9. I try to do mine every time I start a new project, I change the needle then too. Luckly my Bernina tells me when it needs oil.

  10. My machine usually only gets a clean up when my mother comes to visit and sits down at it... thankfully that's at least once a year these days ;)
    Although I did get into it the other day. The auto thread cutter was catching the tread, so whilst it cut, the end didn't come out without a good tug. I think I cleaned a similar pile of fluff out of the underworkings. I guess you gotta show a bit of love to your babies in order to get love in return.
