A Fluffy Sewing Machine Handle
When using a hand machine I always pad the handle with a bit of pipe lagging for comfort, but when I pulled one of my machines out of its hidey hole today and took off the cover, I wondered whether there was enough fur on the handle for me to forget the padding. Oh the joys of living in a damp country.
It was quite interesting from a (not quite micro)biological point of view. Once the cover had been off for a short while all the pretty downy fluff fell flat.
Moral of the story - check your machines at least once a year to check they aren't quietly festering. If you live in New Mexico and/or a centrally heated house, you might be able to ignore this advice.
