Ahhhhhh


Back in business...

Is it a Bernina that you have? Re: the cost of parts and time to get them, it's the same here at the only authorized dealer in Humboldt County.

He also sells some stinky parts for other machines -- I bought an embroidery foot for my "replacement" Singer (meaning, available to use if/when my Bernina needs service) that cost me $30 at this shop. It broke quickly, as did the replacement foot. I ended up getting a universal foot that works better than the one he sold me, at my local little sewing/craft shop in Fortuna, for $9.

These dealers think they're gods.

p.s. I really love the piece you're working on in the photo!

Both of my machines are Husqvarna Vikings and actually this guy is really nice and decent. It's a Sew & Vac shop and frankly, I wonder sometimes how he can afford to keep the doors open. Perhaps repairs are his bread and butter. At any rate, I let him know I appreciate that he carries what he does and that he tries his best when I need help and doesn't try to soak me on anything. My next closest dealer option is at least an hour away and I'm well aware that my local option could be a nightmare - been there, done that elsewhere!

Thanks for your comment about the quilt. For something that I was so unhappy with initially, I am really warming to it in its cut & pasted resurrected form.
