Hi friends sometimes I just like to reach out to you and share great products, deals, and a few tips! Machine Maintenance Be kind to your sewing machine, change the needle after big projects and clean it out often. If you see dust on the outside I can guarentee it is on the inside. If you don't know how to clean your machine - google your machine name, model, cleaning, and someone will show you on a blog or YouTube video. I use a paintbrush to get those dust bunnies out.

Colonial Needle Giveaway and Sewing Maintence

and had them clean, oiled, and adjusted
for $15 a machine. A group of sewers from our library
called a man and he came to the library
and did machines for 3 hours one after another.
We got a better deal than if we sent our machines out.
A few needed parts and he took those back to his shop.

Speak to your Guild about hosting a clean out!

Once every couple years it is a good idea!


The wonderful people at Colonial Needlesent me
the new Machine NeedlePack II
to try out and give one away to one of you.

I really love mine to store all the
different sizes I have been getting!

Once I start using them I can store them in the pack by type/size!
It came with great chart for choosing the correct needle for the job!

The quilted fabric pack just folds up for easy storage!
