Sewing machine works so hard for you that we know you want to keep her purring. Just a few hours of sewing will cause fuzz and lint to build up under the needle plate. Sometimes pieces of thread can get lost under there too. Learning how to maintain and properly cleansewing machine regularly can prevent broken needles and  costly repairs.
