    What I find amazing is the number of variations of this problem. Cord unplugged. Power strip not on. Stepping on the foot pedal for another machine sitting next to mine. :-) The possibilities are endless!

    Isn't it great to be human? I guess we need to laugh at ourselves sometimes.

    How funny! How truly indicative of the things we forget to do when we are in our sewing rooms.

    I thought my machine "died". I was at a class at the time. Turned out I had dimmed the display all the way down. Since I couldn't see the icons to press "sew" the machine wasn't going to do anything. lol! The dimmer switch (in my Janome) is right by the thread spool so I had accidentally turned it while threading the machine.

    I accidentally found out what I did after unplugging and replugging the connections several times.

    REMEMBER TO MAKE SURE THE

    So funny! I've done that too. You almost want to look around to see if anyone else saw you do that. Oh well you're ready to go now.

    Such a funny tale and I know we can all relate! If not with sewing machines...surely other items lurk in electrical infamy.

    I once cut out dress for my daughter , set up my machine on table and then remembered the electric was not on yet, as we had just moved in .Had to laugh at myself. Well could have been worse.

    LOL you are not alone as I even went so far as to call a friend who was an electrician. I knew my machine worked as I had been sewing earlier in the day. Oh well, it happens.

    I used to work tech support for Gateway PC. I had a customer call telling me her mouse didn't work. We tried formatting and reinstalling everything, couldn't seem to get it to work. I finally had the bright idea of asking if she had plugged in the mouse........

    LOL! Sometimes, the easiest solutions are the ones not seen.

    The PC did say "ready to go out of the box"

    Thanks for the chuckle ladies, I firmly believe we have all done something like. I was at a sewing session recently machine wouldn't work, called th4 dealer, they called back and we got it going, then couldn't get bobbin threaded, them came time to thread it again and the bobbin disappeared, went throught everything then I just got another bobbin then I found the one I had lost down in my machine. Everybody just had a good time laughing and I did too. What else can you do and they as well as me are still laughing. In addition, I put the machine needle in my finger , screws fell out of my sewing machine feet and the last thing when I was ready to leave, I broke my little finger nail down to the quick but I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO FINISHED HER PROJECT. They had no problems, I still can not believe it.
