Though it is not absolutely certain,
it does look like a different shop here in town can easily fix
my machine--hopefully within the next 10 days...unless they
have to order a part though that would be unusual for them.
He also mentioned they've never
had to ship one back to the factory for repair.
I'm trying my best to keep my
temper annoyance in check,
especially until I get clarification from this shop but it is looking
very likely that I'll not step foot in that other one again.
Of course, I just need to wait and see.
Keeping my fingers crossed it's fixed and back home soon.
Meanwhile, I got the ol' Bernina out and just maybe today
I can get caught up on my QAL stars for the week.
