I haven't blogged about this yet,
and I am sure some of you are wondering why??
For those that don't know,
I finally got to bring this home...
Her name is Lydia.
And she and I are going to spend many hours together.
(yes, I name my machines. I used to name my cars too.)
She's been here a while, but she had a little problem.
When Janome designed this foot(the 'O' foot) for the machine:
You should have seen me stressing over it!
It can't sew over seams.
Not at all. Bunches, moves, bulks, rebels.
I was so upset that the machine couldn't even sew a seam!
Turns out, it is only this particular foot that can't.
It just happens to be the foot that I will use most.
So, I started researching what in the world I was going to do.
I had a high dollar machine bought for quilting,
that can't piece quilts.
My local dealer should have already handled the problem
before the machine ever got into my hands.
Only I didn't know it.
A bit of web research found me this:
Oh, yes, a newer version of the above foot....
and it works!
A quick email to Janome,
and they put one in the mail.
(Even though my dealer was supposed to include it free.)
I am now sewing right along. Whew!
This machine truly is a dream machine,
but I've much to learn about it.
And I am taking the time to do so.
A big thanks to Janome for being quick on sending the new foot to me!
The other machine-- you remember T REX don't you?
It is in the shop getting its timing all fixed.
I use it for Denim dog blankets and usually T-shirt quilts too.
It's a cheap little machine but it has a powerful chomper.
Once I get them both working,
there will be NO stopping me.
Well, until the next time Stephen needs something.
That happens alot.
But he's cute about it.
Have a Blessed Easter everyone.
I have signed off for the weekend.
See you Monday!
