Boo hiss! I know from the message boards that, when others have had this issue, it has taken their techs about 10 minutes to solve it by reloading firmware in most cases, but of course yesterday was Sunday and the shop was closed. I have had this machine for 13 months now, so I was planning to bring it in for an annual "well baby" cleaning and maintenance soon, anyway, but she picked a lousy day to get sick and refuse to cooperate! I only had about an hour and a half carved out for one-on-one sewing time with Anders, and it will be two weeks before it's his turn to work in the sewing room again. He's quilting straight lines on his quilt with the walking foot on the Bernina, and I don't have a walking foot for the Featherweights so we couldn't just use another machine. If I had known ahead of time that Miss Nina would be indisposed, I could have planned and set up for a new project for Anders to work on. Instead, he watched episodes of I Love Lucy and The Big Bang Theory on the television while I scalded myself with the iron. NOT how I had planned my afternoon to go!
