About To Cry....

Actually...... I already did! 

I picked up my machine after paying 200 bucks to repair last Friday. They claimed it was an electronic problem, the pedal needed replacing, and they would do a general maintenance.

When I picked it up, it was working with the thread they had in it.  The needle up/down button was working again and the machine was no longer giving me an error/beep when I pressed the pedal.

I had to do an embroidery order last week and early this week was tied up with getting my house cleaned up.  It was a mess!

So I pulled out my machine last night.  I ran it through again with their thread and used the piece of fabric they had in it.

I was thrilled!! 

James was settled into his bouncy seat.
Picture taken with my iPad2...a bit grainy....but isn't he just darling!

I started laying out my quilt pattern.  Pulled out my fabric.

I chose my thread.
Re-threaded my machine.  Turned it on.  Pressed the pedal.


Nothing.  Same old beeping.  Same old error message on the screen.

I opened it up because I HAD to figure it out.  There was 7 years worth of crap/dust inside.

I think I have just gotten taken.

Now I have to go have someone else look at it because I don't trust this place.
And I need some courage to get my money back!

So my new challenge? 

To try to use the boys' sewing machine.

I am going to prove to myself that anyone can make anything with even the most basic machine.

At least that is what I am going to keep telling myself!


  1. Oh man! That really, really stinks! I hope you get it figured out soon. And yeah, James is adorable. :)

  2. I would have been so so so ticked. I hope you get it fix right and fast.


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
