Tips from the Tech...

  • Surge protectors….a MUST for all computerized machines. 1000 joules is recommended protection.
  • Please, Please DO NOT SEW OVER PINS!!! You risk breaking a needle which could injure you and damage your machine. If you do break a needle, please be sure to find and remove all the pieces.
  • Oil your machine and change the needle after every 6-8 hours of sewing. Oil your machine at least weekly. Please discard dull or damaged needles.  Replacing needles are the least expensive thing you can do to take care of your machine and prevent damage to your project.
  • In the event your fabric is pulled down into your throat plate and the machine jams, TURN OFF YOUR MACHINE and remove the needle from the needle bar. DO NOT USE THE HAND WHEEL to pry the needle out. This could affect the timing on your machine or damage the hook in the machine.
  • Remember to remove the throat plate and clean the lint from the feed dogs and bobbin case area after each project. And please DO NOT USE canned air duster to clean out the hook area of your machine. It may move lint farther into the machine, and may also fly up and damage the computer boards.
  • When cleaning the computer screen, never use abrasives on your touch screen. Use a mild cleaning agent such as 409 sprayed onto a soft cloth. Never use acetone or mineral oil to clean your screen.
