My husband is a mechanic, and I am always hearing him tell everyone that "Preventative maintenance now will save you money in the long run." So, just today I listened. I was attempting to shirr some fabric for a dress for a pregnant friend of mine and my machine kept jamming. I opened up the bottom plate and yuck! Look what I found!
Gross! Gross! Gross!
So I got out my handy dandy vacuum which has a million attachments, including a teeny tiny one perfect for sucking our all the lint!
