... and my BRAND NEW MACHINE decides to stop working.  No idea what's wrong with it.  I'd spent weeks trying to find the right machine, and ended up spending $200 more than I had to just to make sure I'd get the one I really wanted (after returning another one - the whole story is here), and I finally had it and I'd finally figured out all the problems in my new top and done seam-ripping and resewn and gotten everything perfect, with just one seam left to go, and I run out of bobbin thread.  Well, no biggie, even though it's a completely inopportune moment (it's 1am and I have to wake up early tomorrow and I'm SO CLOSE).  So I wind some thread on my bobbin, get that all set to go, rethread and it WON'T SEW.  It just jams.  Every time the needle goes up something weird happens with the upper threading like it's stuck.  I rethreaded it countless times, changed the needle, reread the manual, tried to look inside, blah blah blah and to no avail.  I've no idea what to do.  It simply won't sew.  I'll take it in, but AFTER ALL THIS.  And I was making the top especially for tomorrow to go look at apartments (it's very nice but still casual; I wanted something in between a t-shirt and a blouse).  I'll just hand sew the seam and get it over with; it'll be a temporary fix so I can at least wear it, but UGH!!!!!!!  I am so frustrated!!!!!!

By the way, I never liked your face.

oh I share your pain and experience. I've had that happen to me too! It seems like it's always right near the end that stuff like this happens.
