Try and find something else to occupy yourself?
I sure sympathise with you. I have two machines, my brother spent most of last year at the dealers (6 hour drive each way to pick it up!) and still doesn't work properly. Now my Janome is sitting in pieces, waiting for a part, and has been for several months. I've just about given up!!!

Is it the same problem each time?

What machine do you own?

Yep, that would be my idea, take your overnite bag and a huge bag of fabric, sit down at one of the machines, and say, "I'll just be right here till you get mine fixed. Don't worry, it's no trouble for me to sew here." Hee hee hee. It does sound as though you either have a lemon, or an inept service person. Is this the dealer you purchased your machine from? After all this, I'd certainly tell them that I need a loaner till yours is fixed. My dealer would have offered a loaner the first time, and I would have accepted the second time. They are certainly not doing something right, 5 times in a month is more than once a week, for heaven's sake, just too much! Good luck, hugs, Marji

I would go there and ask to sew on one of their own machines!!! That should show them how much you miss your machine (LOL)..*****(Camp there if need be, hehehe).

I would go to a different repair shop, even if it was a tad further..

First, breathe.
Can you go to a quilt store and ask if you can use their classroom machines ?

Hopeful Hugs, Bonnie

I agree with the others, get a loaner. Or buy a used machine to use as a back up. I also think you either have a lemon or need to try another repair person. Good luck. I think you need to contact the company.

Tell the store you NEED a loaner and will keep it until you get your lemon replaced.

I had that problem when I first bought my machine. Turned out that it was a lemon. The company eventually replaced it after five major overhauls in just a few months. Talk to the store you bought it from. They may even give you a loaner until your machine is repaired or replaced!!
