All's well that ends well...

Guess who came back home with me?

I went in to the shop this morning - 1.5hr drive each way which really was kind of enjoyable to be honest. The people in the shop were all so great, again. That makes it worth it to me. A number of different people looked at it, including the tech guy who even called the head dude at Baby Lock Canada, and no one knew what that mystery part was! Seriously, is that not the weirdest thing? He called it a "bonus part". ha! I hadn't tried the machine since my discovery yesterday, but they tried it in the shop it was running great!

So I'm trying to let that whole thing go, but still it was making a weird little noise since hitting a pin a few weeks back so they checked into that too. There were no obvious pock marks or snags in the bobbin case or needle plate, so what she tried was adding a bit of oil around the bottom edge of the bobbin case as well as the part that the bobbin case sits in, and you know what? That made a huge difference!! No ticking sound anymore!

They charged me nothing (awesome!) and I came home with my machine. Phew!! :) Thanks for all the encouraging comments earlier today. Onward......

A bonus part??? I don't know, sounds kind of like when someone tells you the fly in your soup is just added protien.....
