Like a lot of computerised things sometimes all you have to do is turn it off, count to ten and turn it back on again.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to help. I’ve been using mostly straight stitch and zigzag and Susan (yes I name everything!!) appears to have been quite happy.  Until I decided to get a little adventurous and try a stretch stitch 🤦‍♀️ 

Over the last few months I’ve followed your suggestions and used post-its and notebooks, but she behaves differently every time 🙄.

Now no end of time in the naughty corner is going to sort her out. So she’s going to have to go off to the sewing doctor for a service or be replaced.   Didn’t really want to do this until next year, but maybe it’s time ...  don’t want to spend the money, but do love a shopping opportunity and my ever patient OH loves to research, so could be fun! x

Thanks everyone for your help.  My New Home has gone to a local repair man for a little TLC and my ever patient, and now definitely the best husband ever :loveit:, bought me the new Janome 5270QDC.  Think he’s slowly realising he’s not the only love in my life now :dance:

Enjoy your new machine.  Always good to have a spare anyway......or a few spare ;)

So my OH collected my New Home from the sewing doctor who has given it a clean bill of health and a 6 month warranty for £55.  Very impressed  :thumbsup:

OH thinks it’s going on eBay to help pay towards it’s replacement.  Now time to come up with reasons why that’s not a good idea!  :thinking:

You need a spare, what will you do when your other machine goes for a service?

Sooo happy today!  Hubby agreed that I could put my New Home machine which is now working well since it's service, back into my wardrobe and I don't have to sell it :dance:

So what have you named the new machine? (We name everything here too. Our Hoover vacuum cleaner, for instance, is named Herbert.)
You can't scare me. I taught high school for 32 years.

OMG we must be kindred spirits as I thought I was the only one that named inanimate objects.  My electric wheelchair is called Buddy and my manual one is Wally.  The OH has a hard time to keep up sometimes.  I could go on ....   :laughing: 

My original New Home was called Susan and my new Janome is called Jessie.  I'd love to hear what other people call their sewing machines x
