    This comes as sort of a follow up to a thread yesterday. I wasn't too keen on posting it on the open board as I do NOT wish to come across as trying to be a "know it all". I just hate seeing people send their machine to the shop for two weeks, or totally give up on it.

    There are two manuals for sewing machines, one is an Operator's Manual, which comes with the machine. The Operator's manual is just that, how to sew with the machine.

    The other manual is a REPAIR Manual. That is the one that is a national secret. (Hey, repairmen have to earn a living too!) This manual tells you how to FIX the machine. You can Google to find a Repair Manual for your specific machine. Usually available for around $10-12. Voila, there's your magic.

    This info DOES come with a disclosure. I am NOT an expert on sewing machines. (Or anything else except chocolate.) My husband has ALWAYS repaired my machines using this method. My BIL does the same. My machines have NEVER been in the shop for repairs and I've been sewing, well, for a hundred years. Further, we've had no issues with my computerized machines, so the above information has NOTHING to do with the computerized machines.

    Ditto here too!! But on the other hand my DH does help pay for my fabric addiction and takes me on some fabulous cruises, at least one every year. We've even got the next three cruises booked, whoohoo!!!

    Additional thought to ponder.

    Have you ever noticed that when you go to your doctor, he talks to you in the exam room, leaves, comes back and treats you? Where do you think HE'S going? Yep, those dang Repair Manuals come in all forms!

    EVery women needs multiple husbands:
    1) The man who makes lots of money.
    2) The man with good "bedroom" skills.
    3) The man who can fix anything.
    4) The man who likes to travel and shop.

    Preferrably all at the same time but that would wear me out. Guess I will stick with what I have.

    whew! Thank goodness I have them all in 1. It would be hard shopping for 4 husbands.

    I'm going to check this out- I have a few machines that I wouldn't mind experimenting on with the tension.

    Thanks for the info!

    Well I guess I cover all of those bases so I am good!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    But you forgot to add:

    Takes the time to listen to your thoughts and problems
    Understanding/considerate of your feelings
    Makes time to share in your interest and hobbies
    And puts YOU and FAMILY first before him.
