4th grade mechanics.

I had a brief panic today when I sat down at my sewing machine with a day of sewing ahead of me. I had just sewn 2 inches, and pressed down on the foot pedal, and nothing. The pedal had collapsed. After a minute of feeling defeated, I pulled out a screw driver and opened her up to what looked like an easy fix. Remember my broken bobbin band? Well, unlike that, which looked like an easy fix, but then was only semi fixed… this WAS an easy fix. The little door-pull-shaped-object between the V of wires had unscrewed itself, and that has the little metal plate that gets pushed forward to the two little plates to complete the circuit. Made me think of 4th grade playing with positive and negative wires with batteries. Happy that’s all it was! …and that the fix was quick and free.
