A New Year’s Suggestion

January 2nd, 2010

If you are looking for a good new year’s resolution, why not resolve to keep your sewing machine in good working order. Dig out your sewing machine manual and give your machine a good overhaul. Follow the directions to remove lint and add machine oil to the suggested moving parts. Change the needle if you haven’t changed it in a while. It is a good idea to clean and oil your machine after each large project. Because some of my doll projects are small, I try to clean and oil my machine once a month rather than after each project. Changing needles is a little trickier, because I use several sizes when I am making dolls. I save the exchanged needles for reuse. Trying to remember how long that I have used each needle is a good memory exercise.
