    I have a few Vikings and found that you can continue sewing a bit more if you don't touch any of the buttons. it will continue to beep at you and you just sew a bit more until the bobbin thread is almost empty.

    I have tried that and it doesn't work with my Sapphire 875,
    it just stops and beeps at me . It won't sew anymore until I put another bobbin in it.

    Just what we need -- machines that talk back to us.

    Don't you hate it when you go to a class, with a full plastic case of bobbins, and a box of pins...and you proceed to drop the bobbin case and bobbins are rolling all over the floor in every direction, unwinding as they go, and while trying to pick up bobbins you tip over the box of pins and the lid comes off and they all spill out, and you didn't bring your magnet to class? You are definitely the center of unwanted attention. Ask me how I know.

    Oh, please, TWW, don't make me snort soda out my nose again. I'm going to a quilt retreat next weekend for the first time, and the image of me with the pins and bobbins all askew just won't go away. I hope it's not going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I admit nothing because I do not know how many needles I have lost in the sofa!
    They just pop out of my hand. I guess that is an admission.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Okay, the biggest mistake that I have made was to cut the strips for a log cabin twice as big as required. Then proceed to make the full amount of blocks. Only one person in the extended family had a living room/dinning room big enough to lay this monster out for basting. And I took off a row because it was too big.

    Yes, and the other day I was sewing on a quilt when the bobbin thread ran out. I had set up a few extra with that same color thread. Couldn't remember where I'd put it. I tore the place apart & when I gave up & went to make a new one? There was the full bobbin waiting to be needed!! Man, was I disgusted!!

    I hate it when I absent-mindedly leave my pin cushion out when I go running errands and when I get back I find that my kitten has found it and has scattered the pins all over the couch. Bless her little heart. Thank goodness the pins have the large over-sized heads on them, easy to find.
