Beware of Lightening

I've loved reading posts on this board for years now but have never posted one myself. However, I just had to share my woes with you all to hopefully save you the same problem in the future. Had my Pfaff sewing machine and Pfaff Fabric mover plugged into a surge protector and had the current turned off with the switch, or so I thought!!!!! Even though the swich was turned off when our house was hit with lightening last week the surge of power blew out the brains in my sewing machine AND the fabric mover (including a slew of other expensive items in my home). Obviously I am sick! As soon as I realized my "quilting addiction" was going to be affected and I wouldn't be able to sew I lost it. I immediately ran up to my local repair shop and am still waiting for a verdict as to if the machine can be fixed/worth fixing. The Fabric Mover is definitely shot. So a word to the wise, unplug your machines when not in use. Even the best surge proector isn't foolproof. Happy quilting!!!!
