4 Reasons to Have Your Sewing Machine Serviced Regularly

For most people who use a sewing machine, this is an investment they cannot do without. It is, therefore, important that you properly maintain the machine. If anything, since the machine can only remain in service for as long as it is able to function.

With proper maintenance, you will be able to have a clean and long lasting machine. But what are the subtle reasons why servicing a sewing machine is important? Read about them below:

Dust and Other Particles

When the sewing machine is left uncovered, it tends to attract dust and other particles such as pet furs. When dust, furs, lint, and other materials find their way into the sewing machine, they can adversely affect the inner working mechanisms. An experience sewing machine maintenance expert should be able to help you keep your machine covered to prevent internal damage. Of course, they know where to get the best covers for your type of machine. Covering your sewing machine is key, especially if you stay for a long time without using the machine.

It is also important that you get into the habit of regularly cleaning your machine after every use. It is not recommended that you use a can of compressed air but a diminutive nylon brush to remove any debris. Don’t apply moisture during this procedure.

Friction

A sewing machine has a number of movable parts which brush against each other. If left without oiling, these parts begin to wear and tear because of friction. An experienced maintenance expert knows the type of oil to use when lubricating your machine. If you are unsure please get in contact with us.

Needles Breaking Too Frequently

Never try to use the same needle for all your sewing. This is advice that an experienced service provider will give freely. The type of needle you use depends on the fabric and thread. The major cause of needle breakage is using them for the wrong purpose. Watch out for broken needles are they can cause greater damage to the machine. That is why you should replace your needles after every four hours of continuous sewing.

Other Issues You Cannot Handle Yourself

No matter how much you carefully use the sewing machine, it is still possible to miss a few things. That is why you should call a professional to help you with the service once in a while. It should be someone who understands the mechanics of a sewing machine. After all, you have done your best to take care of the machine. Now allow the professionals to also do their work of checking for things you may have no knowledge they even exist.

My 40 + years singer machine had stopped working for me but after SewingDirect replaced some parts & serviced it for me it's running like a dream. So pleased I found this little gem of a shop in Beeston who also stock all sewing needs & knitting wool.read more

I found Duncan at Sewing Direct to be extremely helpful and generous in helping me find a particular set of Dinosaur fat quarters I wanted to purchase. Despite them being out of stock everywhere he was able to source a pack from his suppliers and gave me a 10% discount code. This code turned out to be a £10 off code instead and rather than expecting me to pay more towards my purchase he very generously honoured the £10 off. I would thoroughly recommend Duncan and his company for going above and beyond to help me. This is definitely a business worth going back to again and again.read more

Duncan at the sewing and knitting centre was always just a click away if I needed any assistance. Yarn came very quick and was vacuum packed for ease of posting. I have not used it yet but colours are spot on as to sample shown on website. They also do fabric which looks tempting. I would highly recommend this company.read more
