Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

Dust, lint, pet hair, and other nasty bits can get inside your machine and shorten its working life. Keep it covered and keep it clean. You can get basic plastic covers which will do the job (and many machines come with them). Or you can make your own. It’s a quick and easy project.

Here’s mine:

I made that charming (and slightly wrinkled) cover in an afternoon. It coordinates with the organizer mat under it, the cover for my dress form, and my curtains. You don’t have to be that compulsive. But it was fun…
