My sewing machine seems to be broken... I am most unhappy because I still need to finish up my Mary Poppins jacket before the Pattern Review costume contest closes on Friday! Why? Why does this happen to meeeee?!
And yes, I am aware that the melodrama is unwarrented and absurd but I DO NOT CARE! I have a head cold and a BROKEN SEWING MACHINE!
I think my main frustration is that I can't for the life of me figure out what is wrong. When I turn the wheel forward the needle is hitting an unidentified "something" in the bobbin assembly. Weirdly I do not have this issue if the turn the wheel backwards. I have unassembled and reassembled the bobbin assembly multiple times in past several days. There is probably less lint in the machine than when I brought it home.
I'm starting to wonder whether this machine has just seen it's last days. I mean, I suppose you can't expect a $150 machine from Walmart to last more than 5 or 6 years? My dear Brother C6000i has served me well but it may be time to consider an upgrade... hmmm...
