My Brother is Dead!
Don't panic...none of my real brothers have been harmed in the writing of this post...My Brother ULT 2003D. That machine has been a lemon from the start. It has been in the shop more than all the other machines I have had in my lifetime...put together! I was just finishing a simple apron and the last 1/2 inch had no stitches...WTH??? The needle was still threaded but the needle was not moving! The part that links the needle bar to the gear has broke...AGAIN. This is the third time that has happened...it's been under a year since the last repair. Since I never use the embroidery feature on it anymore (I always embroider with the BMP6) I think I will see if they are up for "Let's make a deal". If I can get a good solid sew only machine I will be happy to get out from under that lemon! Although is is a big inconvenience to deal with today when I planned to sew all day, it is not the end of the world. Not to fear Kittens...I always have a back up sewing machine waiting in the wings (actually I have 4 now if you count the treadle which is still functional) The project was completed with my Singer which has moved up to the #1 position for now. Wish me luck...hopefully I will be bringing home a new machine today.
