Do you want good tension on your sewing machine?

To keep your sewing machines tension in tip top shape, you need to clean the bobbin area regularly. My favorite way to do that is with these Micro-tip brushes by Quilt in a Day. They are tiny and fit into the smallest spaces. You can bend them..and either wash and re-use them..or just toss them out when done. They work so good that I also use them to clean my keyboard, and the vents in my car. Click HERE to watch a video of them in action. BUY THE BRUSHES
