A Clean Machine

Eeew! I got all this out of my machine, and I know I cleaned it out before I started quilting my last quilt!

If the lint was the same color as my thread I would think I had used extra linty thread - where did all of this come from?

I vacuumed it out with my tiny vacuum attachments, and put a drop of oil on the wick.

Now it is all clean and ready for the next project.  **And I have a picture for future reference if something ever comes off and I don't know where it goes!

  1. I do a no-no thing and open the bottom part of the arm, too. I do a deep clean after every major project.

    I don't understand the lint color, either. It doesn't match my thread.

    I quilt my own, so I am assuming it's the natural accumulation of dust on thread, fabric, and batting (despite keeping it all under cover). Plus bits of batting fibers.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
