Not I, I’m happy to say. My poor little Janome had a bit of a breakdown yesterday. For some reason it has started skipping stitches. So I gave it a good old clean, changed the needle (twice), experimented with different tensions, rethreaded it, tried a new bobbin…. all to no avail.
I think I’m going to have to take it in for a service. I have had it for a fair few years now and it has done some donkey work in that time (including making the sail for the “largest (fake) viking longboat burning in the UK”, which was part of the Hadrian’s Wall Living Frontier celebrations back in 2009…) and the poor thing has never had a service.
Unfortunately it does mean that all sewing activity is suspended until I can get it sorted.
If anybody has any other suggestions of what I should be trying, please let me know.
I have plans, people, big plans and they do not involve me being sewing machineless!
