Allergy season is right around the corner. Did you know Miele dustbags offer many benefits to allergy sufferers?

Miele AirClean 3D Efficiency dustbags ensure that dust picked up stays inside the machine:
✅ Breathe easy: filters more than 99.9% of all fine dust particles
✅ Hygienic bag replacement: the bag closes when the appliance is opened to prevent dust from escaping when the bag is being replaced
✅ Securely contain dust: Thanks to several filter layers, dust that has been vacuumed up cannot escape into the room air
✅ Each box comes with 4 dustbags, 1 pre-motor filter, and 1 exhaust filter

Don't be fooled by its compact size - the Miele Classic C1 canister vacuum is small but mighty! 💪 The electrobrush provides optimum carpet care, and the stainless steel telescopic tube lets you easily tackle hard-to-reach places like ceiling fan blades or vent covers. Effortlessly vacuum large areas with the 29.5ft operating radius. The handle is shaped for maximum comfort, and the floorhead can be easily maneuvered thanks to the flexible hose connector. This compact canister vacuum takes up minimal space in your storage closet, and is lightweight for easy transport. Miele #immerbesser

I recently purchased a Pfaff Smarter 140. My stitches are a little loopy. I hesitate to fiddle with the dials. I have unthreaded the machine, taken out the bobbin and re threaded everything. I also made sure that the thread in the top and the bobbin are the same. Can you halp me?
I do not reccomend! they will not answer when you are upset! they ate my money
