It is almost like taking yourself to a luxury spa as a part of your maintenance regimen. Keep your machine and space clean, clear off all the stray threads, lint and keep it dust-free. Ensure that you regularly oil the bobbin case of your machine. Keep a count of the number of bobbins used (about 5 to 6 empty bobbins are enough to remind you of the oiling routine). Remember to get a regular cleaning done at least once a year to maintain the machine long-term. A well-oiled and maintained machine provides you with a hassle-free experience and lasts you very long!
