    Exclamation It's the 1st of the month . . .

    When I'm sewing, I clean the machine with (almost) every bobbin change, depending on the type of thread and fabric I'm using. Monthly just won't cut it. Now the smoke alarms, that's another story. They get new batteries only when they start screeching, usually in the middle of the night.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I clean out my machine with every bobbin change, no way could I wait once a month. Not my job to change batteries.
    We start day light savings time next weekend, when they tell people around here to change batteries and again when we go back to central standard time. I like this time better.

    I would never wait a month before cleaning my machines. Every bobbin change for me.

    It's a great reminder It just happens that I had to open my machine yesterday as the thread kept catching. A lot of 'stuff' was removed and now it sews so much better
