Sewing machines need to be serviced once a year for an average sewer .
Yes. When a machine sets dormant the oil can get thick and working parts may freeze-up causing restriction of movement and may cause damage to the machine. When you're ready to sew, you want your machine in good working order.
Providing your machine doesn't require a part that must be ordered, you should get your machine back in a week or two.
