Dust Bunnies and Gremlins: The Importance of Regular Maintenance
- Do you only take your machine in for a service when something goes wrong?
- Did you know that you can do regular maintenance between service visits?
- Do you know when you should take your machine to a professional technician?
These and other questions will be answered in this interactive lecture created to show you tips to keep your stitching friend happy.
I am an independent service technician and a certified service technician for APQS longarm machines. In my experience, there are things that you can and should do on your own to help keep your machine in good shape. Our sewing machines are much like our cars. You don’t need a full service every month but routine maintenance will help it run smoothly for the time in between.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced sewist, understanding what you can do and when you need to see a professional technician are important to the wellbeing of your machine and providing you with a smooth sewing experience.
There is a companion workshop, Featherweight Spa Day, that can be given a day or so after this lecture, if desired.
