I decided that I would not put up with any frustration but wait for the classes to sink in.

    It may be worth for your friend to check if there is a forum for the Pfaff Expression. She may get lucky and hook up with some nice folks like the QB.
    Yes she's had 1 class and the next one is this Saturday.

    She's spoken to the LQS service guy and he's going to look at it on Monday. He thinks something needs adjusting. She's pretty p.o.'d that he wouldn't do it today. But he said he had to leave early.

    I have had this machine for 12 months and have had no trouble with the bobbin. In fact I am very happy with it.

    I'm beginning to think it might be 1/2 machine and 1/2 her....lol.
    She's not good with "change" so maybe having a new machine is a large learning curve for her.

    She said she'd call me Monday after the service guy looks at it.

    I have the Expression 4 and it does take a bit of getting used to. It's certainly not error tolerant. When your friend is winding the bobbin, tell her to make sure she is threading the machine so that the thread goes round the upper part of the thread guide. If it goes round the under part that could be causing her problem. PM me if you need further details.

    I've actually heard something about this while I was at my dealer taking a class. I'm not sure about posting the dealer's web site but I'll pass it on to those I feel are in need.

    Can someone take my last post down, I goofed up and was supposed to send it privately. Never mind, I found a way to get the post down. Not perfect, but, it will work until someone can pull it down. I realized I don't know how to edit/delete my own message.
