Last week I was able to do a painting workshop with Bernadine Hine.
I don't say that I did it right but am on my way and after the flowers and bird are put into a quit and have some machine quilting added to them they should look OK.
Well I can hope.lol

Tomorrow I am planning on sewing most of the day.
I am been a bit upset one of my Pfaff machines went in for a service as I thought I had pulled the timing out. The repair man rang and said the clogs that control the dogs were worn out and would cost $400 for a new set and with the service $500. I asked was it worth it and he said no as if anything else went it was not replaceable. I am really annoyed. It is a 15 years old machine but cost $3,500 back then. I expected it to last 30 years or at least the parts be available. I have a Pfaff embroidery machine and it has already had a mother board ($1000) replaced under warranty. (4 years old) I asked if the parts for it would be available in 10 years time and he said he did not think so. Two expensive machine that I expected to last for many years.
My other Pfaff a 1222E is over 30 years old. He told me the parts will still be around in 10 years time and not to ever sell it.
I am thinking that the older machines are the ones to have.
When I buy another new machine it is going to be a Benina. I have been researching machines and their service and availability and they seem to be the best backup for service and parts being available for older machines.
Until next time
