I'm not dead

But my sewing machine and my camera are. Makes it hard to post to one's sewing blog! I'm so frustrated. Apparently the foot pedal on my Bernina record 830 originally had some overheating problems. My pedal has a "T" sticker on the bottom indicating that it's been fixed but it's a little suspicious that it gave out during our current heat wave! A new pedal costs $140. And I can't be positive that's the source of the problem without a working pedal to test it. What to do...

This is awful timing. I'm supposed to have already completed a commissioned quilt (more on that to come). I tried to take pictures of the stalled project only to find out my computer won't read my camera's memory card! WHAT is going ON?

Happier news to come...

Sounds like a dileman on both the sewing machine and camera - my son destroyed my memory card for my camera - now I'm on a smaller one until I can get a larger one. Always something, right? By the way, I need your address - email me at tkjtbair at verizon dot net.

Thanks
Kris

better grab that new pedal while you can I hear that the factory in Switzerland had a flood and few pedals are to be found...I too have a 830 and the overheating is a problem with the original pedals!
