clean and oil your sewing machine !!! wipe out all the large fuzzballs and then oil all of the moving parts with sewing machine oil ( preferably not 3 in 1 oil )also , if you have been using the same needle for more than 10 hours of sewing, you might want to change that as well !!! have a great day :)

Absolutely right on all counts, according to my sewing machine repairman husband. Also try using a Q-tip for removing lint from the bobbin area of your sewing machine.

We need these little reminders. If anyone has access to the brushes used on typiwriters, these work great. It has a bulb that covers an expanding tip. It is not as forceful as the aerolised can of air and has no moisture in it. Since typewriters are not sold very much anymore, I am not sure where these can be found.
