Paul Boody

Proper bobbin case maintenance is crucial to maintaining the correct tension on your sewing machine. Neglecting this essential task can lead to tension problems and affect the quality of your stitches.

Bobbin Case Maintenance

How to Maintain Your Bobbin Case

Follow these simple steps to ensure your bobbin case stays in optimal condition:

  1. Take a thin business card or a matchbook case and gently insert it between the bobbin case and the tension spring. Use a non-metallic tool to remove any debris that may have collected. Never use anything made of metal as it can damage the bobbin case.
  2. Once the debris is removed, check the tension to ensure it is set correctly.

Regularly cleaning your bobbin case prevents debris buildup under the tension spring, ensuring that your sewing machine maintains consistent tension. This simple maintenance routine can significantly improve the quality of your sewing projects.

Remember to perform this maintenance every time you replace every 2nd bobbin, as it helps maintain the tension and prevents stitching issues.
