Open Up Your Sewing Machine

Posted by Debbie Rodgers on Jun 29th 2018

I have always been intrigued with how machines work. It is fascinating to observe how clutches, gears, belts, springs, and switches work together to make a machine operate. I own nine sewing machines; I am familiar with cleaning and oiling all of them, and I know how to make a few adjustments on the older mechanical machines. So I was especially excited to work with Bernie Tobisch on his new book, You and Your Sewing Machine.

Bernie shares his knowledge and experience gained as a sewing machine technician of over 42 years. In the book, he covers the following topics and more:

  • How a sewing machine makes a stitch
  • The basic workings of a sewing machine
  • Various presser feet (including reviews!)
  • How to clean your sewing machine and lubricate the moving parts, plus other maintenance items
  • How to make adjustments for thread tension (Bernie even explains why the thread might feed better coming off a vertical spool pin)
  • Needles, presser foot adjustments, and how to adjust for buttonholes
  • Bernie explains everything in detail so that you will understand how your sewing machine should be working and what to do to fix it when it is not operating properly. And you won’t have to flag pages for reference, as there is a comprehensive troubleshooting guide and index included, too.

    No matter what brand of machine you have, whether it is a new machine or an older one, you will find all you need to keep your machine performing at its best.
