Hope it's here now!
Hope it's here now!
It must be there by now. It is two days later.
She's a beaut! May you have many long and productive hours together.....Enjoy!
I got hubby to finish putting her together yesterday morning then had to run out to get a few errands done - it strongly advises you to use a surge protector and we didn't have an empty one - okay, we had one... but the light was flickering on it so there was no way I was going to use it... so in to town I went...
After I got back, I read how to thread a bobbin - funny... if you thread a bobbin while the machine is not stitching, the needle still goes up and down!! Go figure. That's weird. It's designed to fill a bobbin while you are sewing which is a cool feature but I do like to have a few bobbins ready before I start a project....
Well. .. after getting her up and running, I started to sew on a scrap sandwich and she didn't sound very good. There's something wrong for sure... then there was a clunk and I broke a needle. It also smells strong of oil in my craft room now. I'm not digging that. I'll be making a dealer phone call after they open. I think I want my training now.....I didn't think I'd need it but sadly I think I do. I must be doing something wrong and why is it smelling so strong of oil?...
She's bringing it back on Sunday.
My local Lizzie dealer called me today to let me know that they got their sit down model in... yeah, a bit too late now that I have purchased the machine elsewhere... I told her of my problems and she said that their machine is super quiet. I might have to go down there tomorrow to play with theirs so that I can have it fresh in my mind for when my machine is returned. If it isn't quiet when they return it, I will demand a new machine.
I'm really bummed and it is not starting off on the right foot.. first with my table being messed up - it felt like sandpaper... then with the machine being really loud and not sounding the way it should... then the replacement table arrived and it was damaged and then my machine being send out for repairs. I'm not sure what to make of it.
I'll post up Sunday after the machine comes back... :'(
Oooohhh, so sorry you are having so many problems. I hope all is fixed and you are able to play soon.
demand your money if they give you the fun around ,and check the other place maybe they have a new one that ready to sit up.
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!! Have fun with your fabulous toy!
The rep came by yesterday with my fixed machine. It broke 2 needles while she was sewing with it. The second one completely ceased up the machine. She said that she had another machine out in the car so we set that one up. It runs much nicer than the other one.
I will say it is a lot louder than I remember it to be. Part of me regretted getting it because of the noise - there is some sort of an echo/vibration that we think is coming from the table. My new table will be late here next week so we'll see how that goes... I'm going to quilt up a table runner today that has been waiting patiently for me to finish and then after that I need to set aside quilting for a few days and get working on the crochet designs for my website. I don't want to miss my December new design release date... I'm going to figure out how to juggle crochet and quilting yet...
But so far, so good. She's back... My craft room now has excellent lighting thanks to some flourescent lighting and I'll be a happy camper :)
