I can't even tell you how far beyond miffed I am at this moment. Someone (and I do know who Dustin!!) decided to use my sewing machine yesterday while I was at work andwithout my permission. That same someone (Dustin!) preceded, in short order no doubt, to jam up the bobbin. Not knowing how to fix this, the suspect in question seems to have taken apart the do-dad that holds the bobbin in place. Now the worst part of this offense is that it was not mentioned to me, but instead, left for me to find on my own as the criminal was off at a babysitting job all evening. I am possibly the most mechanically UN-inclined person you have ever met, so can not seem to figure out how to put this back together. Could have something to do with the blood boiling in my eyes and ears, so I will calmly (yeah, right!) leave the room for now. All I can say is that it is a very good thing that the outlaw has a summer job and has been banking some money, because I can almost feel a new machine in my future!

Uh, oh. Run for cover, Dustin.

(I'm so sorry, Paula. Why is it always our stuff they get into??)

You need a coffee break. Want to take one soon??

When I was 12 or so, I decided to take apart my mom's sewing machine. When she found out,well let's just say it wasn't pretty!
Be glad it was just the bobbin thing it could have been a lot worse!

I'll bet if you fiddled with it, you could figure it out.
good luck!

My sewing machine is something NO ONE is permitted to even think about touching! Not that a certain pair of little fingers haven't managed to tinker with it though and luckily for me - and her pretty little princess self -I found the presser foot she had managed to snap off and cart off for a while! I'm not keen on allowing some people access to my computer either but the sewing machine is sacred territory not to be messed with by anyone but ME!

Hey, that looks exactly like my sewing machine. What are the odds of that? We have got to get our families together. With every passing month, I miss you more and more. Love, Melissa

Okay now don't laugh--but me being the sewing challenged thought that EVERY time you have to change your bobbin, you need to take it apart--totally a part just like that picture..LOL. It would take me upwards of an hour to get it right and to not have everything be tangled up!

Have you figured it out yet? If not give me a holler via email and I will try to walk you through it, as I have the same type of machine and by default have gotten pretty good at putting it back together! LOL

Oh my. That would have caused me to freak out also.
