    My sewing machine locked up the other day. So my husband being a mister fix it decided to take it apart and fix it himself. Sure enough he managed to get it running again. Sounds like a purring kitten. To bad it is running in reverse. What was he thinking.

    This sounds like my husband! lol He is always willing to try and fix everything - but when it ocmes to my sewing machines, I stand right there and make sure it goes back together the same way it came apart. But I do appreciate him being able to fix it because the last time I took a machine in for repair, they screwed it up so I couldn't use it again.

    My DH had better not touch my machines. I fix and repair the old ones myself. He even tells his buddies, that when it comes to my machines that I now about them than he could ever learn. I will do small things on the newer ones but if I can't fix on the first try I will trust them to my repairman..

    I am going to give him another chance to try and fix it. If he can make it run forward as well as it is running backwards I will be very happy :P

    Okay, since it runs backwards when you try to sew can you use the reverse button and it goes forward. My DH is a fix it himself type of guy too, but not my sewing machines. He thinks it's okay to have a part left over.

    It does run forwards if you push the reverse button. How funny is that. He must have put a belt on backwards.

    How sweet, and the good news is you could probably get a new machine out of the deal if he can't reverse it.
