Sewing Machine Quick Tips:

Keep your sewing machine covered when it's not being used. This will keep out the dust (dust
is bad for sewing machines). You can get an inexpensive plastic cover from a sewing store or
you can make your own cover. It’s a simple thing you can do that could save you potential
problems in the long run.

Don’t Sew Over Pins. Sewing over pins can be convenient (it’s easier to take them out all at
once after sewing a seam than to take each one out as you come to it), but it really isn’t a
good idea. Not only could your needle hit a pin and break but sewing over pins can cause your
stitches to come out distorted.

Sewing Quick Tip:

Tape measures can
actually stretch over
time. Therefore,
periodically check the
accuracy of your tape
measure by holding it
against a yardstick. If
all of the
measurement lines
don’t match up
precisely, buy a new
tape measure.
Sewing Quick Tip:

It’s important to
use a sewing
machine needle
that’s appropriate
for your thread.
Using a needle
that’s too small
can cause your
thread to shred or
break. And using a
needle
that’s too large
can result in
uneven stitches.
