I got a new sewing machine for Christmas, its only a cheap one (£40 from Hobbycraft) as i just wanted to get some sewing practice.

But already its started squeaking while sewing, any ideas what could be wrong?
Any sugestions greatly appreciated.

Oil the moving part of the treadle to start with:)
Darcey you any idea what's squeaking? Can you post make / model.

Would it need oiling after only 3 weeks?

Tony, its Hobbycrafts own make, its called a midi.

I think its the top bit where the lever goes up and down.
See if this is any help, Darcey.

Thanks Tony, i will try that tomorrow.
Ok I'd just try a small amount of 3 in 1 oil, or light spray of WD 40.
Darcey these machines are built to a budget, and maybe some lubrication got left out in manufacturing process.
If that doesn't work maybe return for replacement or refund?
