My trusty machine came home from the QP Spa purring like a kitten. The foot pedal works, the beeping has stopped and the machine goes the speed it's supposed to. No comment from the tech except he said "I cleaned it" The look that came with that statement however spoke volumes . . . .
So my machine decision is put off again. Off to Bernina University and Baby Lock Tech, the dealer conventions, this summer - we'll see what they have coming!
