How do I care for my Sewing Machine?
Sooooo...How do I care for my Sewing Machine? My singer instruction manual isn't very though rough. It is written as if I should know all this stuff already! Where should I squirt oil on it? How often should I clean it? What is that weird smell it makes when I'm sewing, is that normal? It doesn't quite smell like burning...but doesn't not smell like burning!!! What is a good setup for sewing(table/chair/light ratios)? Does the dust jacket really do anything besides keep dust off the machine, does dust matter? What is the deal with metal and plastic bobbins, is there a difference in uses? How long should a needles life usually be? After I pinned the fabric should I take the pins out before the needle reaches them? So many questions!!!!!
