My worst fear (in sewing land of course) came to fruition today. I cut the last pieces of interfacing, pined my sections of bag together, threaded the machine and then..........NOTHING!! Absolutely nothing. I checked the plug, the cable, the switch, the socket, the plug in another socket. And then after conferring with my StepDad ran downstairs for a fuse and screw driver.....changed it......still nothing.

Bestie is dead :(

She was only just serviced in January and for the first time in 9 years she isn't working.....starting to think I shouldn't have had her serviced!! No, what am I talking about, of course I should and tomorrow I will be calling the technician who serviced her tomorrow to see what they will do. I cant be without her for a long period of time so if its a long wait I will either have to hire one or loan one.

And on that note I'm console myself with a glass of wine.


  1. Have you checked the foot pedal? mine once had some loose wires, the sewing machine was running itself which was weird! so I ended up buying a new foot pedal!

  2. oh no! I know exactly how you feel.
    have you tried plugging her into a different socket? I can't think of anything else to try.

  3. Oh no thats awful, I've been in a similar situation and it was horrible, I hope she's sorted soon x

  4. Oh no! How frustrating! Why is it when ever anything gets serviced it always plays up after? Hopefully there isn't too much of a problem and it doesn't cost the earth! Sue x
