    Q-Oil for Innova

    Can anyone tell me what oil they use to lubricate their innova LA and where they purchase it from? Also, I heard about an oil that you put directly onto the thread ( a line down the spool) to prevent breakage; does anyone know what I am referring to, where I can buy it from and what it is called?

    Thanks a bunch:-)
    So many quilts, so little time :-)

    The lubricant for the thread is SEWERS AID. It is a silicone base lubricant for the threads. I use sewing machine oil on my HQ16. But you should contact your dealer to confirm what to use.

    Wouldn't you like to live with my mind just for a moment? I wish you would, I think I need to get OUT OF IT!

    Sharon Schamber dips her thread cones in white pharmaceutical-grade mineral oil. It won't leave residue on your fabrics.

    You use regular sewing machine oil on your Innova, the same as on your DSM.
