There are many more specialty feet available designed to make your sewing projects easier. Ask your local authorized sewing machine dealer for a list of those made for your brand machine. Take classes to learn more about the feet and what they will do for you.
Be sure to use the correct bobbins for your model machine. Bobbins can be either made of plastic or metal so consult your sewing machine’s manual before purchasing additional ones. It is recommended to keep several on hand, wound with your basic colors. Avoid winding one color thread over another or using damaged or nicked bobbins, as they may cause stitching problems.
Keep your sewing machine tools handy, as they are an important part
of your machine. Needles and some presser feet may need to be removed
and attached with a small screw driver. If your machine needs to be
oiled, do so prior to beginning your sewing project rather than when
you are finished so the oil gets worked through the machine’s moving
parts while you sew. And, keep your bobbin area and around the feed
dogs free of lint for a smoother-working machine.
