Free Video - How to Clean a Sewing Machine Bobbin Area by Jennifer Evans
Jennifer Evans of Sewplicity demonstrates an excellent cleaning technique in this video tutorial. More from Jennifer:
"If you are new to sewing, or just haven't ventured into the mechanics of your sewing machine, this tutorial is going to walk you through the simple steps to clean out the bobbin area of your sewing machine.
"How often you clean out your bobbin area really depends on how often you sew and what type of material your sewing. For me, I try to clean my machine once or twice a week because I am a heavy user and I sew a lot of batting which creates LOTS of lint. If your sewing mostly cotton, and are more of a weekend warrior, you can probably get away with twice a month."
