in fact VERY NOT HAPPY. My dear little sewing machine is dead.
It just proves that This Quilter should not do buttons or mending. The Scot needed trousers turned up. Short legs he has. So early yesterday morning, I usually rise a couple of hours before him, I headed to the sewing room cut and turned, found the correct thread. Switched my new CD player on and the machine.
Sat down, put my foot down and
Not a stutter.
I did a bit of fiddling, well it is quite a few years old, Pfaff 1471. Deducted it must be the foot pedal.
The Scot has spent two days trying to fix it. A new foot (if we can obtain one) would cost around $100. Is it worth it? or a new basic machine. Decisions, Decisions.
In the meantime if anyone has or knows of a spare Pfaff foot Pedal going, or how to obtain a resistor board or piece of metal. Please let me know.
