My sewing machine is at the shop. The needle wouldn't move up and down when the pedal was pressed. Just beep, beep, beeped like crazy. I have had it for 7 years and am VERY worried. I really don't want to buy a new machine right now when I am saving for a longarm machine.
My sick puppy is a Singer Quantum 4440
I know Singer has gotten a bad reputation lately amongst the online community, but I have nothing bad to say about it.
It has a kajillion stitches including some special decorative embroidery stitches. It came with a lot of feet, including a walking foot. I have a separate machine for embroidery only. I love that I can be sewing on my Singer while my Babylock works things out!
They are worried that the computer is "off". Things might get really expensive.
Apparently, they see a lot of machines that are computerized sewing machines out there. They are wonderful, but like a car, you buy a fancy model, pay the fancy price, you are going to have to keep shelling out cash to keep them in shape.
In the meantime, I have been using my sons' sewing machine.
It is a Brother LS-1717.
I bought them the blue version though!
It is pretty handy, but VERY basic!!
Makes me miss my machine even more....
If it looks like I am buying a new machine, any suggestions?
