Visitors: 145

When embroidery systems were introduced several years ago, hundreds of people rushed to get one for themselves. This is very understandable because machines really do help a lot in making embroidery much faster and more convenient, especially for the busy individual who does not have the time to do traditional needlework.

If you are one of those lucky people who have their own machine, you must know a few things about caring for your equipment. Your embroidery units has definitely done a lot to help you out in your daily life. If you want your embroidery machine to last for a very long time, it's about time you start thinking about its maintenance.

Providing the right kind of care and maintenance for your embroidery machine is not difficult at all. It does not have to take several hours nor does it require a lot of effort. It's just a matter of being consistent and vigilant.

Every time you use your embroidery machine, do not just leave it after finishing your work. Make sure that it's clean and kept properly. It is very important to remove all the lint and dust that may have settled on your machine while you were working.

When you work with cloth or fabric, it is inevitable that some lint from the material may be left behind on your embroidery machine. Some of it may stick to the oiled components of your embroidery machine. Some lint may also attach themselves to small parts of the machine such as the bobbin springs.

A single piece of lint may not do much damage to your machine but if you let them build up, they can possibly cause several kinds of malfunctions. It is best to remove the lint and dust regularly to avoid this problem.

A good way to avoid getting too much lint and dust on your embroidery machine is to always keep it covered. Even if your embroidery machine is always in an enclosed room, dust still has a way of getting in. It is always better to provide all the protection you can to your embroidery machine.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you should oil your machine regularly. If you take a close look at your embroidery machine manual, you will see that the parts that need regular oiling are indicated in there.

The manual might also tell you what kind of lubrication is needed for your particular machine model. Some embroidery system brands have their own oils. If this is the case for your embroidery system, it is better to use the compatible lubricant to make sure that your machine will function perfectly.

If you clean and lubricate your embroidery machine regularly, you can be sure that it will last for a longer amount of time. In case something does go wrong with your machine, do not try to dismantle it on your own. It is best to bring it to an embroidery expert as soon as possible to avoid any further damage.
