Clean your machine before storage

 

With the use of a soft lint brush, clean your machine in all areas including bobbing case area and needle bar areas. Clean the outside of the machine too using a mild cleanser to ensure it’s completely dry. Once dry, you can store it carefully.

 

Oiling

 

Use the white sewing oil to oil all the movable parts of the machine which contain no paraffin content in it. Before oiling you should sew a scrap piece of fabric by bringing your machine into best temperature operation. Oiling your machine will have some good benefits as it prevents it from rusting easily hence saving your money too. janome 660

 

Covering your machine

 

Cover your machine when storing it whether in cabinet or in the case. Make sure you cover it using a towel or either a large piece of fabric. This helps in eliminating dust which could affect movable parts.

 

Moderate temperature

 

Store your machine in moderate temperatures. Extreme temperatures may cause condensation hence making the oiled parts to rust.

 

Change your needle

 

 A good machine needs needle changing. Old needles may be bent or dull which may make your work difficult. You may find some skipped stitches as the needle is too old. This may in turn damage your machine as well. accuquilt fabric cutters
