Well hubby went back to the shop the next day, Internet was playing up yesterday so couldn’t get on here. He had a word with the chap in there – which is a Bernina registered dealer – but he had no idea apart from saying he thought something was ‘snagging’ somewhere..hmmmm no offer of correcting it or even looking to see if he could spot anything. NOT impressed. Then he suggested we take it back to the shop we bought it from. ALSO did not have the screw in stock – registered dealer remember!! -. Said he could order us one hubby said not to bother he could get one probably quicker off the web.
He duly came home went on WWW and ordered the screw from the place he had seen it and hopefully it will be here tomorrow. Cheers hubby, soon be back to quilting. He is also going to take my machine back to where I bought it from – Birmingham – and we shall see what happens folks..
Meantime, I have been doing more FMQ on the new machine to see if I can ‘crack’ this, but no, it is not playing the game for me at all. So, I have reverted to just using it for plain old piecing and that works just fine, have managed to get yet more Amish quilts tops made plus my red and white ongoing quilt top assembled.
Today Annette took me out for a bit of retail therapy we had a lovely shop, got a couple of prezzies for that ‘thing’ that happens at the end of the year in December!!!! Had a good laugh, actually laughed so much I got stitch.
Made a complaint to one shop Manager about the entrance to his shop, it is a bit of metal across the opening and it was raised quite a bit and my wheels had a bit of a job getting over it, so I made him come out, get on my wheels and go for it himself. He agreed with me it is not good, Will be interesting to see if it gets altered…..I will be watching. I feel I am a one woman and her wheels crusade for fair treatment to us wheelers.
Actually I had a bit of a giggle to myself today as I noticed every time I passed another person on their wheels, they look and either nod or smile at you, some say ” you alright?” which I have to say I did find amusing, but if this is what they wish to do, I too will play the game. I may start to keep a scorecard, well why not. Let’s have some fun here. Does anyone remember the AA peeps used to always salute AA members if they saw a badge on their vehicle? I remember them doing it.
Well I have just been on EBay and done some more retail therapy, well as my daughter says – “It would be rude not to” Hope you have all had a great day, I have.
