    since my repair shop charges $80 just for you coming in the door, I'd guess $125.00

    It is $75.00 just to walk in the door then add cost of parts and then labor. Might bet as much as $100..... Just a guess.

    My shop charges $69 just to drop it off and if not under wrantee (sp) you pay for parts and shipping if they have to order. Currently I have my Janome 350E machine in the shop because the embroidery arm won't retract. So I too am waiting for the 'sticker shock' bill.

    OK - THIS is why I only own mechanical machines. I'm going to guess $59.95 because there is a local guy around here who comes to your house and fixes your machine for $40 plus parts. I'm betting the thread cutter is simply jammed and I'm also betting that wherever your DH took your baby that they will be fair. Fingers crossed for you ......... let us know!

    This is my first laugh of the day- "It's been gone three hours and I miss it already'.

    My guess is $40.
    Edited to add: Now I have read all of the responses I think I am low. Mine was just in for general service and it came back making a noise. (cost $90 plus tax) I took it back right away. It was something with the "hook" and there was "no charge". This was Byrne's sewing in New Britain, PA. This is my favorite shop.

    I feel your pain. I dropped off my machine on Feb.1st and I still haven't got it back! I would think $50.00 would be reasonable.

    Lets see, you live in Canada, Im going to say about 125.00 I live about 2 hours from anywhere, so when I need my Bernina serviced the dealer does same day service. I drop it off, go shopping out to lunch, and then back to pick it up. I can't imagine leaving her there!

    It is not working. Sounds like it is working but nothing moves inside.
    I have the same problem occasionally. I have found that I can fix it myself by cleaning out the bobbin area. I don't mean just the bobbin case itself, but actually taking out the bobbin, the bobbin race, and opening up that area of the machine so I can get out any and all small pieces of thread/lint, etc., that is clogging the machine. Sometimes the problem is thread getting under the threadcutter and jamming it. Easy fix.

    Can you send me the name of your repairman? I can't even walk into the store for less than $35. Annual maintenance on my old mechanical machine was $120. I am afraid to take my new computerized machine in. It will probably be twice that.

    Well since I am here I am going to guess at least 135.00. Not really sure as my Berninia doesn't have an automatic thread cutter and never had to have it fixed. But to have my machine serviced here it is at least 69.00 or maybe more now. Hope it really isn't that much though. Jennifer

    It would be great if you have a cheaper bill and a quick return! I would miss mine too!

    Best of luck!
    I agree in the area of $100. I have a broken machine right now and the estimates Iam getting start at $100 just to look at it not including have to change the part. It's a plastic part probably made in China for a .05 cents and they want to charge 50.

    I would guess $93 for parts and labor.
    $40 if he finds only lint.
    I hope that it is nothing if he finds lint, becuase he wants you as a future customer. We can only hope.
    Best wishes.
    PS I bought a Janome 3160 with thread cutter for class and back up in case my 6600 gets sick.
