What do you do when your sewing machine just starts working all by itself?
Well, you panic a bit, pull all the plugs out and then start un-knotting the thread that is wrapped around the bobbin case. Leave your sewing machine unplugged for a couple of weeks in the naive hope that the next time you plug it in it behaves.
2 weeks pass....
Plug sewing machine in. It behaves - great. Use it, and forget to unplug it. Get in the shower, and after a few minutes, wonder what on earth the noise it that you can hear above the shower. Pull back shower curtain. Shout and swear. Get out of shower and run to sewing machine being careful not to slip over or drip water in the plug socket whist yanking it out. Open the windows and remove Cat from sewing room because burning smell of bewitched sewing machine is foul. Be thankful that you were at home when this event happened and that you didn't need to call fire brigade whist sewing room is on fire and you are in a towel with unshaven legs.
So, what to do? I cannot believe my trusty Bernina is misbehaving. Perhaps this is an all out protest because I've never had her serviced since I purchased her (second hand) and she is very old.
I found this sewing machine repair guy via google. Has anyone used him?

I still have some of my cards on offer if you missed it in my last post. I'll leave it another couple of days and then draw the recipients.
