I was having difficulty this morning with my sewing machine. A piece of the plastic thingy that holds the bobbin had broken off, and the bobbin kind of flops around like a fish out of water. I called Brother Canada and after being told the bobbin holder thingy was a consumable (like a needle or lightbulb! That's what they told me, until I argued, politely about it!) they said they'd ship me a new machine and I could ship the old one back when I get/test out the new one. Seems like overkill when I expected them to just replace the piece, so we shall see how this goes. In the interim I have no zigzag machine, ARGH. I'm going to have to figure out some workarounds for decorative/zigzag stitching - I can't wait for a week to get these projects finished - I have time constraints. Wish me luck - it wasn't a very good day today, LOL!!
