Baby Lock Sofia Review
June 25, 2011 in Machines
I must say that I‚Äôm nervous and excited, in the same breath!
I‚Äôm nervous about my new endeavor that has popped into my life (my new Baby Lock¬†Sofia¬†machine) and excited that everyone will get to read about my new adventures on this journey.
Sofia was introduced to me as; ‚Äúshe can do everything for the beginner and intermediate sewing enthusiast plus embroider.‚Äù Once I got the box I was so excited just to get started, that I had visited the local fabric store ahead of time knowing I would want to begin immediately‚Ä¶ I did what I would do with anything; I‚Äôd set the manual to the side, plugged it in there was already a bobbin in the holder and all I had to do was tread the top stitch and I was ready to start. I grabbed a piece of fabric just wanting to practice with the LCD touchscreen and proceeded to just play with the setting. Once I was comfortable with that, I decided to embroider something (still not bothering to crack open the manual.) Placing the material in the loop, changed the foot, selected a design and pressed start!‚Ä¶.. Well‚Ä¶..that didn‚Äôt work like I had planned‚Ä¶ (this is what happens when you DON‚ÄôT read the manual first) the needle broke and the foot fell off. I thought to myself ‚Äúgood Lord! Please don‚Äôt tell me this is going to be a complicated process of changing functions‚Ä¶.‚Äù (I may have thrown in an expletive or two.) I decided rather break another needle I should open the manual and read how it should be done properly‚Ä¶Once I read the instructions, I felt better knowing that what I blindly did was correct and that the screw to the foot loosened and made it shift forcing the needle to not have a hole to go through and breaking‚Ä¶.
Until next time- Michelle
