Well.....He is home....and I am sooooooooooo thrilled. It did not cost me one penny. I was shocked! I was geared up to pay through the nose because just for them to work on a machine is 100 dollars.
When she said there was no charge, I just couldn't believe it. After talking to the JANOME on the phone and emailing customer service, I was sure I was going to have to pay. I didn't even have to pay for the throat plate. I was told by both on the phone and by email that the throat plate was not under warranty.
Now I am afraid to use it. She did mention something about the thread is not suppose to come through the needle plate (what no tail)....and said that I should use the automatic cutter each time but not with the foot up (that was if I forgot and then remember while the foot was up and went to use it). So to all of you who want one and was scared off....I would say it is the ignorance of the operator.....broken needle and all. I found out that she also gives classes.....I certainly am going to take them.... I also found out that with this machine you do need the classes.
Maybe if I had had a class or two this would not have happened. although, it was a needle breaking that did it.
I just want to say that "A Stitch In Time" here in Fredricksburg, VA is awesome!!!
So what am I doing while the boys are home? I am filling their orders for their favorite foods (for some reason Mr. Burger King lives here and they have to have it their way)..... this is all of my son's favorite and thier biggest request. Picture is a little yellow but my third son loves these. Yes...all by scratch. My husband says I spoil them....I won't tell you what he has been doing.....nope...I won't dime him out but he is just as bad, if not worse. Tomorrow it will be lasagna. So not much is getting done besides cooking and doing the dishes.... I am working on the second "Be Attitudes" blocks while the men are watching James Bond....It is not like they haven't seen this one 100 times. I am sure they can recite most of the dialogue. Maybe they just want to be James Bond, what man wouldn't, women flocking all over them, money, cars, guns.....yep....I can see it. Maybe I want to be Wonder Woman, with that waiste line and long legs...what woman wouldn't? A fourth son comes in tomorrow!
