It has been awhile since I have posted. Stop to read updates everyday and love hearing from everyone. It has been very hot here in MI and we need rain badly. I have been doing a fair amount of sewing and completed several quilts for my charity group.
My complaint is about my machine. It is a Viking Saphire 875 and I have had problems with it ever since I purchased it 5 yrs ago. When I take it in they tell me I use it far too much and that it is always full of lint and that makes it not function properly. Since I have had a warrenty I have been taking it in every 3 months this year before it expires. The Tech claims it is my thread and it is not a good quality. I use CT thread and have not had any complaints about it. I also use it in my Mega Quilter. I do find that occassionaly it shreads in my quilter but often it is the needle needing replaced. So in the end they say to change thread and it is my fault the machine does not work properly.
I am going to try other thread for the next couple of months and take it in again, but I bet I will get the same run around.
Has anyone else been finding the tread "Linty" and causing problems?
