Anyway, a few days later I went out to the workshop and thought about what Mr Sewmaster had said - clean your sewing machines abut once a month. Alien concept but since I can't sew with either of my washing machines, I thought I'd give it a go. What a surprise! It would seem that 4 years of lint piling up under the feed dogs can make your machine jam, stall and snap! My Toyota is running like a dream so the hope of a Pfaff has gone up in (a puff) of smoke!!!

and if you're wondering where Jonathan is - she only had room for his hat!!
