I haven't washed it enough to get the fringes looking like they should. I only get it out when company comes. LOL
    I don't have anyone in the are anymore that services Husqvarnas as we lost our dealer about a year ago. I sold these machines, so I have a good idea how they work, so I do much of the maintenance on them myself. But if anything serious was to happen i would be hunting down a repair person REAL fast :)

    Just keep doing routine clean ups, be sure to clean out under the throat plate and bobbin case....keep changing your needles after 12 hours of sewing with them and you should be fine :)

    Don't think it would mail very easily but I'll sure give you the recipe if you want it. It really is simple to make.

    Thanks for the advise about the thread. I'm lucky to have a dealer that does work on about any machines. He worked at AAA before they shut down and now he works in Thornton, CO at Above and Beyond Sewing and Vac. Most of her service only cost $49 and if he does a full cleaning they he charges $99. The last guy that worked on one of my machines charged me about $268. A real rip off.

    ME TOO! Just don't get too much done with all the e-mail I get. My sewing room looks like a bomb went off today. I took two small quilts out to my quilter friend today. I hate hand sewing the binding on so she is gonna show me how to sew it on with the machine. She does such a great job on it and of course it hold's so much better than my crummy hand sewing does. Can't wait to get it figured out.
