I took my sewing machine to the hospital for a service this afternoon. They said I would get it back at the end of July. That's WAY to long! The service man asked why I was having it serviced. I told him that it was "clacking". He got out his oil and took it apart - within about 5 minutes there were no more clacky noises. And, he did it for me for free! What favour! I did buy some Olfa blades and some new bobbins - so now I'm ready to start some new projects!!!!
