Even though many of our readers still have snow on the ground – with more on the way – it *IS* officially springtime, and that means it’s time for spring cleaning. When was the last time you cleaned your sewing machine? That long, huh? While you’re cleaning and organizing your sewing space, take a few minutes to clean and oil your sewing machine, too. It’s a good idea to do this after every sewing project; more often when working with fuzzy fabrics that create lint build-up under the stitch plate. Today’s video tutorial demonstrates cleaning and oiling a BERNINA 7 Series sewing machine, but the steps are basically the same for all machines. Check your owners manual for more information and to see where to oil your particular make and model. A cleaned and oiled sewing machine is a happy sewing machine!
