Unwanted road trip
After him working on it all day long....and not being able to figure out what was wrong with it. He was on the phone with Bernina most of that time too...they decided my machine needs a new main computer because the shafts are out of sinc. See, the same little plastic piece keeps breaking inside my machine. This is the 4th time it has happened. Jerry says it is because the shafts keep pounding into it...whatever, the computers are still under warranty so they are being replaced. I love my 820. I do. But if you pay over $5,000 for a sewing machine, I bet you expect it to last for a long time. I do. Heck I have 2 little featherweights that are both over 60 years old and they sew perfectly with no drama at all. My New to me Gammill is basically just a motor on wheels, no computer frills at all and I love it much more than the babyloc I tired at the Bernina shop yesterday.
I think after my 820 kicks the can (which if they are already ((after only a year of ownership)) having to replace the computer inside, won't be too long down the road) I will just dumb down my machines. I have a dumb phone and I LOVE it. I ask my machines to do so much, and 9 times out of 10 my 820 can do anything and she does it beautifully, but when she is down, I don't have the skills to make her better. Oh well...that is just what I am thinking at the moment. I do have a wonderful little back up Bernina, so I am still working on my bags, never fear about that!
It is really cute...so is my Emma.
Speaking of Emma, she has really gotten quite tall. Not only is she quite tall, she is so very athletic. Some college basketball players came to her school earlier this week and she played with them and won this basketball, which she then had them all sign. She is so sweet.
OK, I am just waiting for a call from the kids school to go pick up one of my children...we have been stricken with the fall sickness, but maybe I can get some sewing in before they call.
Have a great day!
