  3. haha! yes, it feels like it... is there *really* that much to them?
  4. I fixed my grandmas to do the curtains for our van, it was easy to fix needed a new cog, but it has to be re timed to make sure the needle and spool move at the correct time that was the difficult bit!!
  5. Does that mean that if its a 15min fix it only costs £11.25? Bargain!
  6. Seems about right for repairing domestic appliances

  7. yup, timing seems to be the issue with mine. May have to get the overlocker out but the way my luck's going today that'll explode into a fireball and take my eyebrows off. maybe. :D
  8. if only! sewing machine repairers are always really grumpy old blokes who seem to hate their jobs, but i've never been charged any less than a whole hour.

  9. That seems about right. Thats why I'm glad my dad sorts my machines. But no before you ask he doesn't do other people's machines. It's because he loves me.
  10. he could grow to love me too! :D
    i'm so bored without my machine, had planned a weekend of sewing but the sewing machine gods clearly had other ideas *harrumph*
