DGD has been itching to try quilting on my Juki on a Grace frame. She is almost eight and very careful with sewing machines. I figured her hands would be away from the needle and all would be OK. I just got a speed regulator so she wouldn't have to worry about speed. She started out great. A little wobbly but it was looking fine........then.....snap......the free motion foot broke! Bent the needle and is in two pieces. I use this machine a lot and the little bar that holds on the bottom of foot broke. She was so disappointed. Just ordered another foot from Sewvacdirect so we will be off and running in a few days. I guess I just wore that poor foot out. She can't wait for the new foot. She is hooked on FMQ. What fun we are going to have.
