my little [and only] machine broke :cry: first sign something was wrong .... my top thread caught someplace in the head, but would pull loose when i tugged. i took the cover off after the second time and couldn't see anything out of the ordinary.
then .... my top thread threw loose strings under my pieces. took the cover off again; everything seemed to be o.k.
sewed two more pieces [these were all 1" seams] and the foot lifter lever fell down! and wouldn't lift the foot back up. the only thing that lifts is the lever - it's no longer attached. yuk! my sewing machine place is i20 miles away. a snow storm is coming. sigh
