Grr... My 3 year old messed with my sewing machine sometime in the past...not sure when, because I don't go in that room very often since I had the baby. But I wanted to try some embroidery I saw elsewhere, so I made the hubby watch the baby so I could use my machine. I'm happily sewing, when the thread underneath starts piling up. Well, I start checking settings (I had caught it quickly, so it didn't mess up anything else!!) and look at the thingie that sits over the feed dogs. It was canted. So I reset THAT, then try again. then the bobbin part is "tight"... so I pull out the case. And can't get it back in, so I call the hubby to try, since he fixed that prob before. Well, he put it in wrong (After I told him how it's SUPPOSED to sit) which I didn't notice until I try to rethread the bobbin, where the stupid metal disc that catches the tthread had caught my bobbin! So I try to ease it out, and the "ear" broke!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRGG GGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so ready to nuke 'em all from orbit, then cleanse with fire. After that, I'll take their stuff......
EDIT: Now I can't find a gorram replacement part...I am going to lose my ever loving MIND! Anyone have a spare bobbin case for a 4830? *curses the gods, kids, and everything else I can think of*
