Be You and Be Awesome
Keep your dogs clean - a pipe cleaner does wonders in de-linting your feeddogs and bobbin area. Bend back the tip so you aren't poking with the scratchy tip. This is a speed tip - I don't have time for tension issues!
Put your foot down! Make a habit of lowering your presser foot, when you are done sewing for the day. There's a spring that is at rest when the foot is down.
Change your needle often, make it a healthy habit! You don't wait for dental pain to start brushing your teeth. Think of changing a sewing machine needle with that same thought - it's a simple, inexpensive habit that helps you avoid something much more painful and expensive. Rule of thumb - NEW is a 3 letter word, give your project a fresh new needle after 3 hours of sewing.
Cotton Candy! Working with 3-d, think of the stuffing/fiberfill as if it were cotton candy. Pull off bite sized pieces (not giant handfuls)
