When my girls were little, they had frequent ear infections. My oldest had trouble saying the word "infection" and ended up saying "too-fection" That's our go-to word now when something goes wrong--It has a too-fection.
Thank you for the laugh!
Lidia Merry Christmas for you and family. And Happy New Year 2017 Huggies Stella
Thank you, Stella. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
Pity I didn't read this sooner -I could have loaned you one of mine, not that we live *that* close, but closer than many! I'm not so sure my machines would be up to the beautiful work that you do, for that matter. They mostly get to embroider on dog lead webbing here! Fingers crossed for a quick return and a successful repair and I also hope that the not so helpful person agrees to be tested. I've heard there are medications available these days that can slow the deterioration somewhat. Best of luck, Lidia.
Thank you for your offer, I appreciate your kind thought. I rang the shop yesterday and they told me that my machine hasn't come back yet and I will be advised by email as soon as it arrives to their shop. I wouldn't be too harsh with that person, really, he is a nice person and could be on medication already.
That should do the trick and you will be back up and running. Hope you figured something to keep you busy in the mean while... cleaning the attic... Lol! It will pass quickly.
Thirteen days have passed and the machine hasn't been returned yet.... I don't have an attic but have so many other things to do so that's not a problem. Thanks for your comment.
OH MY ! Sorry for your troubles... I will put out the same invite as 02kar... You're welcome to come stitch with me !!!
Oh, you are so kind too.... thank you!
So sorry you have had all this trouble. But prayers this is the last time and it will come home bright shiny and in perfect condition. You're welcome to come stitch with me in the meantime.
Thanks for your comment and your offer, Karen!
Oh i hate machine problems hugs:(:(
I agree, Carolyn!
So glad they looked better the second time.
But it is easy so overlook or forget a step in the procedure.
I take my machine direct to the mechanic. Used to go through a department type store (read Hobbysew or Lincraft, etc) and had all sorts of problems. Then I met my mechanic at a Stitches and Craft Show and fell in love with him and his treatment of my machines and his honesty. It wasn't love at first sight, but after a nice beginning with him and a few hiccoughs on my part. I fell in love.
I should mention I now know his family & kids and he knows mine.
Our babies are so precious.
I don't know their mechanic and can only hope that he will do a good job with my baby.. Thanks for you comment.
oh Lidia, such sad news...on the bright side it will be back before you know it & be as good as new! ~hugs~
Thanks, Loralye. I love your optimism :)
I do so hope you are united with your machine soon. It is horrible when out machines are out of sorts.
Thanks, Sarah. I hope to get my machine back soon.
I hate waiting for my embroidery machine to be fixed. I hope these fixes do the trick and all will be well!!! Hugs to you, especially while you wait!
Thank you for your support :)
Sorry you had to take your machine back, but glad that they have finally found the problem...
I'm glad too and hope to get my machine back soon:)
I know your pain. It took 6 weeks to get my machine back. What on earth possessed. someone to spray the machine with a sticky substance? Did they mean to clean it and grabbed the wrong can? I hope your baby will be all better when she comes back.
That person may have Alzheimer but refuses to be tested. The machine has been sprayed outside and inside intentionally, to damage it, and I had to remove it from my sewing room to a safe place. Thanks for your comment.
I'm sorry to hear that you may have an ongoing problem to deal with. You are in a very difficult place right now and I hope that with tyour family and friends that you get the support you need to cope.
Glad you find the problem and the machine is working. Miss our babies when they are at the shop...
The machine is in the mechanic's hands and I hope that he will be able to repair it soon. You are right, I miss my machine.
So sorry to hear that it has taken so long to find out what is wrong with your machine. They are such delicate little creatures aren't they? Love Chris
Love your definition of our machines, Chris! I told that person: "How can I can survive 10 days without my machine? Then I asked if they could rent me a machine for this period but they don't do it anymore, as in the past they had a bad experience of customers abusing the beautiful high-end machines they were renting.
