Remove needle and presser foot (you can leave the machine on for this part so it's well-lit)<br /> 2. Disassemble/clean bobbin area<br /> 3. Clean machine bed with microfiber cloth<br /> 4. Clean needle shaft (rotate wheel to get to the whole thing)<br /> 5. Thread machine by knotting and pulling new thread through every time you change colors (prevents shredding and dust/fiber accumulation near the upper thread tension).<br /> 6. Pay attention to the way the thread twists when you're loading a new spool.<br /> 7. Turn machine off and clean the screen with a microfiber cloth that's slightly damp.<br /> 8. Make sure to put your machine back together properly (aligning all registration dots on bobbin chase, etc).<br /> 9. Consider purchasing a quality surge protector—some will even hold a charge long enough for you to save embroidery work if your power suddenly cuts out. Power surges can fry motherboards—make sure you never plug your machine directly into the wall."<br /> <br /> <b>Find the supplies you need here:<br /> <a href="http://sew-whats-new.net/1w2c">http://sew-whats-new.net/1w2c</a></b><br /> <p></p> <center><a href="http://www.shareasale.com/m-pr.cfm?merchantID=53072&amp;userID=643719&amp;productID=646278965" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://cdn.sewingmachinesplus.com/media/products/bernina/sewpink/newpics/resized/1-new_size3.jpg" border="0"/><br/>Bernina Bernette Sew Pink Sewing Machine</a><br/>from: <b>Sewingmachinesplus, Inc.</b></center>
