       Maintenance

 

It is amazing how much lint, debris and sometimes foreign objects can accumulate deep inside a sewing machine. This added material displaces lubrication and increases friction resulting in mechanical strain. 

 

A yearly Full Service is recommended to keep your sewing machine in a youthful state.
