Has your sewing machine been acting rude?
Is she causing your thread to break, bunch or nest? Is she being loud and unruly?
Well... It may be time for a quick cleaning.
I had a few minutes this morning, so I decided to give my machine a little cleaning. When my machine starts to run a little wonky, I clean her innards and she's good to go!
I keep a few swabs stashed with my sewing notions so they're always handy when I need them.
Start by turning off your machine. Sounds silly, but you don't want to lose a finger or ruin your nails. ;)
Take your needle out. I do this to make the process easier. I can get into the area without worrying about a poke from the needle. I turn the tiny black knob a couple times and the needle drops down easily. Set it aside, don't lose it!
Want to look as cute as a button? Want to avoid a bad hair day? Or... do you just want to sew up something quick and easy? This is the project for you.
I reach for my headscarf whenever I need to fix my hair quickly or am on day 3+ hair. There's no time to wash and dry it, so I'll wrap my hair up in a bun and put on my head scarf.
Quick fix, yes!!
Hi there, I'm Annette and I love eating and sewing. I usually have a cup of coffee or tea with me, but not next to my machine because I'd probably spill it. I am the reason we can't have nice things.
