I bought a new Brother sewing machine almost 2 years ago. I've been working on the applique project posted earlier. Suddenly the darn machine doesn't want to work right. I tried cleaning lint out, changed bobbin, re-threaded I don't know how many times to no avail. I called the store that I bought it from and they said I could bring the machine in and that they would look at it. I asked how much sense it was over a year old. $179.00 Hummmmm I'll fix it myself thank you very much. Finally changed the needle and it works just fine. And to think they wanted to charge me that much to change a needle.
