So you bought a machine, what next !! Part 2
Part 2 of my post on starting to sew and care of your machine. In this post I am going to concentrate on solving problems and then a little light maintenance.
Do you suffer with tension, arghhhhh! Yes, the thing we hate the most. I spend more time messing about with machine tensions than anything else.
We all struggle with tension problems – particularly to start with, I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to throw my machine down the stairs over the years – its still beats us all sometimes!

Understanding Sewing Machine Tension from Crafty Baba also gives good advice on this subject.
and finally, a gentle video on sewing machine maintenance – from Easy Sewing for beginners. Get your tea and biscuits at the ready again.
