I don't agree with her. I know that you can knock out the timing if you break a needle however it doesn't explain why the machine is so flipping loud.
    She's bringing it back on Sunday.

    My local Lizzie dealer called me today to let me know that they got their sit down model in... yeah, a bit too late now that I have purchased the machine elsewhere... I told her of my problems and she said that their machine is super quiet. I might have to go down there tomorrow to play with theirs so that I can have it fresh in my mind for when my machine is returned. If it isn't quiet when they return it, I will demand a new machine.

    I'm really bummed and it is not starting off on the right foot.. first with my table being messed up - it felt like sandpaper... then with the machine being really loud and not sounding the way it should... then the replacement table arrived and it was damaged and then my machine being send out for repairs. I'm not sure what to make of it.

    I'll post up Sunday after the machine comes back... :'(

    The rep came by yesterday with my fixed machine. It broke 2 needles while she was sewing with it. The second one completely ceased up the machine. She said that she had another machine out in the car so we set that one up. It runs much nicer than the other one.

    I will say it is a lot louder than I remember it to be. Part of me regretted getting it because of the noise - there is some sort of an echo/vibration that we think is coming from the table. My new table will be late here next week so we'll see how that goes... I'm going to quilt up a table runner today that has been waiting patiently for me to finish and then after that I need to set aside quilting for a few days and get working on the crochet designs for my website. I don't want to miss my December new design release date... I'm going to figure out how to juggle crochet and quilting yet...

    But so far, so good. She's back... My craft room now has excellent lighting thanks to some flourescent lighting and I'll be a happy camper

    Update.... My new machine is functioning perfectly. I'm tickled pink with it. I had to adjust the height of the hopping foot and since doing that, I've had beautiful stitches, front and back.
    She delivered my replacement table yesterday and it's nice and smooth.
    I'll be posting up some practice pieces later on in the week. I wanted to kick out a few practice pieces before diving in to my stack of unfinisheds...
