Sewing machine update

Thank you to everyone whom commented and emailed me redarding my sewing machine. I know I told you  that my machine went missing for a short time period, but thankfully it arrived at the shops south location and their specialist was able to take a look at it. Not only that, but its repairable!
For $325 bucks, I will have a new motherboard installed and be able to get back to sewing. The woman I spoke with at the store told me the current one was all black from the fire. I do not know why it happened and I am hoping they can tell me when I pick up the machine.
The new motherboard has to come from Phaff and I did not get an estimated time as to when the work will be done - hopefully soon. I miss my machine =(
In the meantime - I made what I think is a good start to a brilliant pattern and some hexis.
I hope everyone if having a great week thus far.


  1. So glad that you were able to locate your machine AND that it is repairable. I hope you get it back soon, too. I look forward to seeing the brilliant pattern you are creating :)

  2. That isn't as bad as I was thinking it would be.

    It is terrible to have the machine gone for even a few days. Hopefully, you will be back and sewing in no time at all.

  3. Carolyn, I hadn't been reading blogs for a few days, and I couldn't believe what I saw when I read yours! I'm so glad that you were not hurt, and that your machine is repairable. Have they been able to give you any clue as to why it happened? Hopefully it's not a common thing with this machine.

  4. Good to know, because we were all sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear. Nice chunk of money, but worth it to have a nice machine back. Enjoy your hexies in the meantime.

  5. Ahhh, so happy for you, that the doctor can mend your machine! Hope they work fast, so you can get back to that awesome tablerunner!

  6. Glad to know that they were able to find your machine and the problem. It is good that they will be able to fix it- You will be glad when they get the part and can return it to you. Hopefully you won't be too long without a machine.
    I have the quilts quilted and the binding made- tomorrow I will finish them and put on a label.
    Then we are off to the coast.
    Talk to you soon.
