    Great news. Now do you have anything else you can give to DH to "fix". Make it something you've dreamed of owning :wink:

    Sweet! I think your first project should be something for him - my husband would never have even tried to fix it!

    Just goes to show that something good comes from something not so good - sooner or later - in your case sooner. congrats

    Congrats, Lisaginger! Now you have to make a decision about what to do with the broken machine. Toss it, or keep it around just in case DH figures out how to fix it...

    Well, story is I have a friend who had an old machine (heavy)
    and asked her husband to bring it downstairs so she could sew
    ...he dropped it.....now she has a new machine..

    Congrats on your new Janome.
    I bought this machine for all my quilt classes. It is a dream.
    Light weight and it has the auto thread cutter....can't live without that for piecing.

    Hi there. I thought it I got a lot for the money. It is portable, has about 5 or so feet that came with it, has an a scissor built in, lots of different stitches. It was $697.00 with tax.
