I am now sewing this project on the third machine in two days. When the Singer 306 got a thread caught in the bobbin case which I couldn't fix, I packed it up and called the sewing repair shop that fixed the same problem in January. They have a three month warranty on repairs so I am hoping they will fix it after Easter.
Then today I was sewing with my modern Bernina when the feed dogs collapsed and would not raise into sewing position. This one will go to the local dealer but I have no idea how long it will take to fix. 😢
So now I am using the Bernette that really belongs to my daughter. Nil desperandum!
