Madeira Webinar Features Two Techs Talking Machine Maintenance

Laconia, NH – On Wednesday, March 29, Madeira USA will host a webinar for embroiderers that will feature certified machine techs, Brian Chase and Marcia Chabot. With combined embroidery experience of over 50 years, each will be sharing information with listeners on the topic: Basic Machine Maintenance: Little Things Make a Big Difference…and May Save Big Bucks! Both technicians currently offer installation, service, maintenance of and training on embroidery machines. The webinar will include information on:
  • Establishing a maintenance schedule
  • Single head vs. multi head concerns
  • What tools and cleaning supplies to have on hand
  • Where to apply oil and grease
  • Cleaning the bobbin case
  • Proper thread tensioning
Madeira USA is much honored to have these two knowledgeable technicians make room in their busy schedules to share the basics of maintaining an embroidery machine with our customers. According to Brian Chase, “Very often, it’s the little things that can make a big difference. And by big difference, I’m talking about expensive repairs. Once an investment of dollars is made in a machine, the investment of time to keep that machine running smoothly is well worth it to your business.”
And bringing perspective – and appreciation – to the years of knowledge that will be shared in this webinar, Marcia Chabot points out, “Back in 1983 when I first began as a multi-head machine operator, there were no computers … automatic cutters and trimmers were unheard of … and machines were programmed with hole-punched paper tapes!”
