Hi, from South Mississippi. I have been reading daily for most of the year... this is my first post. I need help. My Janome MC9700 is giving me fits. It had started skipping when sewing... now it has stopped picking up the three completely. I have re- threaded the machine, turned it off and back on again, removed the bobbin carriage/bobbin holder, dusted, cleaned, new needle, changed tension settings.... NOTHING seams to work. Do you have any Ideas! Desperate.
