    I like to use a new q-tip each time I clean out the bobbin area. Its better than a brush because the lint clings to it and gets lifted up and out without effort. Also, I find I get alot of lint around & behind the bobbin area. I just stick the q-tip down and bring up all kinds of interesting bits. Its magic!

    even better to clean-out bobbin case area is a pipe cleaner! Lint stickes to it and you can reach deep into the underside of the case area, the more lint removal the better.

    Also, don’t forget to look at the backside of the needle plate for additional fuzz and crud!

      Jo Anne, I’ve heard a story about a lady who asked the members of a yahoo group how to clean the little gray mat that was under her throat plate. No one could answer her question. Then one member had her remove this little mat from the throat plate and she discovered that it was just packed lint that had built up over time since she had never before cleaned that part of her machine.
