Yesterday was my full day at the quilt shop I work at. I brought my sewing machine for the down times. Even if I only get a little sewing done when the shop is quiet I have a little bit of moving along on a project. There was a problem with my machine when I finally had a few minutes to sew. I plugged it in and turned it on but it would not sew. I did a little adjusting and it wouldn't budge. In the little window that tells me my stitch length and width, there was an error message. I didn't know what it meant. All the info is in the owners manual at home. Fortunately, I was able to look it up online and low and behold the problem was nominal. I had my bobbin winder in the winding position. All that I needed to do was to move it over and I was good to go! How simple, but I was sweating it because I thought maybe my machine was a goner.
The lesson for the day: When you think something has quit working, don't lose heart, look into it further, maybe it is an easy fix!
