While reading yesterday's topic about how you're supposed to cut the thread near the spool and pulling it through the needle when changing spools, I realized that there must be many more tips and tricks like that which would make my sewing life easier and my machine work better and longer without being serviced. I do have a fantastic sewing machine (the Pfaff quilt expression 4.0) which at the moment is being serviced because I had so many troubles with the tension. The shop was so kind to give me their demonstration model of the Pfaff 2.0 so that I could keep sewing.
But before I keep rambling on, let me get to the reason for this topic. How about collecting all our tips and tricks for daily sewing machine maintenance here? I'm sure it has been done before but a quick search produced no real result. What I did find, though, is one single post topic giving this link, which seems a good starting point:
I look forward to reading further tips and tricks which my machine would sure welcome.
