    Okay -- so I'm not all that mechanically minded....BUT, I can usually deal with a sewing machine. Yesterday I was quilting with my Pfaff....I put green thread in and it kept breaking!!!! It was the same brand bought at the same time as the blue thread!!!!! (doing a designer type of quilt) I got another brand of thread and it STILL broke. I went whining :cry:today to DH and said that I needed to take it in....SOMETHING was wrong!!! I re-threaded 3 times, changed the needle, cleaned the bobbin case out. :shock: He came over and I thought "oh sure...YOU can fix it"....wellllllllll :roll: seems some bobbin thread got caught up on the drum parts (whatever the heck he's talking about) and he cleaned it out...and now it works beautifully!!!! :thumbup: :mrgreen: The hard part is looking at that smirk on his face........ :hunf:

    Well, he did save you $$$$ by fixing it himself. So I guess looking at the smirk on his face is a small price to pay,lol!! I'm glad it's fixed!!

    Just think of it this way... the money that it would have cost for the repair can now be spent for fabric :thumbup:

    Glad it was fixable without you having to do without it :lol:

    I've had that happen to my machine before, I clean and oil, look all in the bobbin area, then I finally am able to see a piece of thread that got tangled. I remove it and all is fine. Hubby can fix lots of things, use to repair power tools, Skil. Doesn't mess with sewing machines.
    Glad it got fixed.

    I guess a few smirks is worth not having to give up your baby for a while to the repairman :wink: but it can still be a lttle grating on the nerves LOL

    The way we trouble shoot... ok, fine I'll try this, and then that, and then this, and then that. Ah hell - let him smirk - and then kiss that smirk off his face. He deserves it! You gotta keeper.
