Frequently Asked Question!

How often you clean your sewing machine depend 0n, if you use the machine frequently or sew also the type of garment you operate on. we would recommend that you clean your sewing machine every three (3) months for light usage and every month for heavy usages.

A bobbin is the part of a sewing machine on which the lower thread is wound. The machine makes a stitch by catching the bottom thread, from the bobbin, with the top thread, from the needle.

The thread in a bobbin is only one of two thread sources needed when using a sewing machine. Together, the two threads create the stitching.

The reason for breaking needles are many here are a few.

  • The needle may not be inserted in the machine correctly.
  • Pulling on the fabric while it is sewing creating tension and break the needle.
  • The bobbin case may not be inserted correctly.
  • You may have stitch something and broke the needle causing the machine to miss timing.

The feeder maybe loose, meaning one the screws may have gotten loose that can cause the feeder not to pull the fabric. Also depend on whether the fabric is thick or soft the feeder maybe too high or too low. Pull the screws where the feeder is and remove anything that there and then raise the feeder higher or lower.

whether you say pucker or bubble its the same thing, one of the main reason is that the to thread and the bottom tension are not balance. Maybe one is to too loose and need to be tighten.

Another reason for the puckering sometimes loose thread get into the tension or between the bobbin and cause the fabric to pucker.
