Absolutely horrid day Thursday and today - Friday - hasn't been much better. To say I am totally fed up is putting it fairly mildly. I think I have finally got through to hubby how I feel about this machine. It is getting me down. Thursday was spent unpicking work and screaming at it. In 1/2" sewing the thread snapped three times. I tell you if I had had a hammer near, it would have been put to good use. A row ensued. Very unpleasant. This was like rubbing salt in an open wound.
Friday - still very upset. My head hurts so much from yesterday. Annette has taken the machine away to compare it to her Janome. She rang me and said the thread was breaking for her too. Now it has gone from the house, I feel I don't really want it back. I feel so tired. People keep saying to me that I 'will get used to it' Sorry, but I really do not want to. I know I tense up when I go to use it as I am now expecting it to mess me about. I want so desperately to do my quilting, but not with this thing. It is truly making me ill. I feel I have wasted my money, and hubby's too, on all the bits he has bought for the darn thing, let alone the cost of the extended warranty. I guess if I smash it up the warranty will be null and void. He said he will take it in to the shop - when he finds time - I know he will, but to tell the truth, I cannot be bothered with it anymore. I surely cannot be the only person to have all these problems. Then again, maybe I can!
I know you will feel I am being overly upset about this but all I want to do is Quilt or sew, it is after all what I consider myself to be. I am being deprived of my hobby. It is making me miserable and ill. I am losing faith in everything I try to do now, I just feel it is all going to go wrong. I don't want to talk to anyone either, cos all people say is things like,
you will laugh at this in a months time ---don't think so;
oh it will be OK when its been fixed ---will never trust it to behave;
don't be so silly---you try using the blasted thing then;
no one else has these problems---no cos I have them all;
you get what you pay for---it was all I could afford;
you shouldn't compare it with the Bernina---that's a joke there is no comparison;
Do I feel better for putting all this down? Not really, I still want to smash it up.
I have tried so hard with this machine, I truly have, I have persevered to the point of madness I would say. I cannot cope with it any longer, enough is enough.
Would I recommend Janome to anyone? What do you think!
On a good note. I had my yearly review at the Doctor's today. I passed 100%
Mind you, I now have to start going twice a year! Odd that seeing as I passed. Oh well.
