12 Days of Christmas Wishing – December 10

“On the Tenth Day of Wishing,
I need to clean my sewing machine.”

And when you go to do so, are you frustrated with the screwdrivers that came with your machine?  I have never found a screwdriver that came with a machine that actually fit under the head of the machine so you could get the torque needed to easily remove the throat plate.  Some machines come with a coin-shaped screwdriver, and they are impossible to get a grip of to manipulate to turn.  Yet, you should be removing your sewing machine’s throat plate regularly and cleaning out the build-up of dust, fibers, and threads that accumulate in and around your feed dogs and bobbin area.  It should be done much more regularly than at an annual machine servicing.

This little screwdriver is perfect for this job.  It can fit under the machine head, and has a regular-size flathead driver for unscrewing the throat plate.

“I could use a pair of thread snips at my sewing machine.”

It is much faster to use a spring-loaded thread snip than a small pair of scissors for cutting your threads.
