I was my own mechanic. I decided to check the machine again before having a mechanic look at it. I saw a tiny bit of thread hung in the shuttle. I took a screwdriver and removed it and now it is purring again. I then made a set of place mats for my oldest daughter. She loves butterflies and I had a piece of black material with bright butterflies on it. I did the back in a solid gold. Each of the butterflies has gold except one and they look great. Which I could post a picture. I am on a borrowed computer and I don't have my all-in-one hooked up.
