Well, not really. But my Janome 9400 is in the shop again after an unfortunate incident over the weekend involving my huge oriental stained glass quilt and a titanium needle, resulting in a very jammed bobbin holder, although to be fair it’s quite possible that the bobbin jam preceded the needle breakage. It’s been used a lot over the last fortnight but it’s only two months since it was serviced and I was a bit bummed about paying $150 minimum to get it repaired again until the receptionist told me that it was still under warranty from the service, so that’s good news.
As you can see, it is well and truly jammed (sorry about the focus). I tried to lift it out with my fingers but it wasn’t moving at all so I decided to err on the side of caution and leave it for the technician to get it out.
I don’t have all that much left to do on the quilt but I was hoping to have it finished ready for photographs on Friday 21st and that’s not going to happen now. Ah well, worse things happen at sea, as my mother used to say (and as an ex-Navy person myself I can vouch for that).
In the meantime, me, my Pfaff and I will be making some maple leaf blocks and maybe adding borders to another of my ancient WIPs.
