:yahoo: You lucky girl Memaw! Did they take your other machines as trade ins? Forgetting the pedal sounds like something I would do? They should have made sure you had it..they should have known your head would be in the clouds over getting a new machine! LOL

If its a new machine chances are good you don't need the foot control...look for an on off button just above the needle.
Congrats!!! Post pics!!

Funny CC! I just put the picture of it in my album. I'm getting pretty good at adding pictures in my album. I gotta learn how to put them on here!

Yes, Annie I did trade back in the three I got last fall. He gave me a fantastic deal. I got the new one for $100.00 plus my trade-in's. I had paid $1400.00 for two of them and then he threw the other one in for free. So I feel I got a very good deal on this one. I had only wanted the serger in the beginning, but when he tossed the Pro-serger in for free what could I do? Then he said he'd give me the embroidery machine for the same price. I really thought I'd use it more than I did. I only used it 3 times and the Pro-serger 4 times.

I'm very happy with what I got today. I won't be tradeing this one in for a longggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg time!

CC if my singer ever quits working I'll be buying a Jamone sewing machine. They are great machines.

I'm going back to town today and getting the foot control! Maybe I'll even get use it today! I can't believe I was that stupid to forget something so important! When I called back in to let them know, they said Bob went out the door and was chasing our car trying to get us to stop.
We didn't even see him! doh I wish I had. That had to be hilarious.... lmao I say that because you just gotta know Bob. He's a funny guy anyway and to see him running............priceless.

. . . I had a different one and threading was a real B--ch angry I have made quilts with it...log cabin...drapes, clothes, table cloths, home dec and so forth..... I know some of the newer ones out there can do all sorts of wonderful things...but I like what I have and it works well for me

I bought a used one at a sewing machine shop. The test was to unthread it and thread it myself. If I couldn't do so in the store, I certainly wasn't going to buy it. I haven't used it much. Plan to make some polar fleece shirts for next winter, but no real hurry.

Luvsquilting, once you learn to thread them you'll be fine. I usually always tie mine off instead of totally rethreading the machine. Although when I got home yesterday with my foot control I thought I'd be smart and take out the 5 threads and rethread myself. Oh my gosh! Thud What a BIG mistake that was. I spent the entire afternoon AND evening trying to rethread the thing!
I was pulling my hair out and beating :hammer: myself up for doing something so stupid! But, like you, I wanted to learn how to do it so I'd know.

Well all I can say is it's where it's gonna stay till I can go and learn how to do all the different things it can do. Right now I can serge on it and that's all I care about right now.
