Keeping Calm and Carrying On
Bernie is on the floor where our junior repairperson is making her inspections.
Mattie is on the table while I get her free-motion ready. Two years ago when I tried I gave up after many broken threads. Now, however, I am a true Jedi, and I am not so easily discouraged.
My money is in my bank account and I do not intend to buy a new machine right now. I am lucky to have this amazing machine (two!) and while someday I would like to have a roomy extended arm fantasy machine, for now I will take Bernie in for repair. My decision was based largely on the expertise of Becki at A Common Thread who really knows her stuff more than anyone else in the area about these Berninas. She was very reassuring that the problem was fixable. Until then, I'm excited to share with you how I solved the breaking thread problem. More on that to come...
