Tippy needs a doctor......

I went to start sewing on my 16-patch blocks for the quilt along, and Tippy was not happy.  Oh, she pretended to be happy, but you could tell in her workmanship that she needs a doctor.  I tried giving her new needles in several sizes, and none worked.  She will need her timing adjusted.  I called my local Pfaff dealer and they charge $120 for a service, YIKES.  I was able to find a $10 off coupon on their website, but STILL.  Sheesh.  I've only been using her for like 3 weeks.  The last owner said she'd just had a service.  I hope she's not one of 'those' problem machine's that goes out of timing all the time!  If she is, then I will have to figure out something else.  I need a reliable machine for my hat business...... ::sigh::  And I thought she was ''the one''............


  1. I'm sorry to hear that Tippy is not feeling well. That is so frustrating! Here's hoping that it's only a temprorary ailment and that she's back to work soon.

  2. Did you end up taking her in? Do you know the last owner? If she said it was just serviced maybe the place she took it to will look at it for free? Just a thought.
