It Ain't Broke, So I Don't Have to Fix It!

I had a slight problem with the new embroidery machine. It gave me an error message. I knew there was an easy fix for it, but couldn't recall exactly what it was. No panic. I looked for an instructional video on line and had to push a few buttons on the screen and slowly turn a knob.


The Avance was right back to work.

While I was looking for the video, there was a subtext running through my head. A similar error on Mama Bernina, and she'd be in the shop for a week or two and it would cost a minimum of $100. My worst case fear was that I'd have to load the Avance into my truck and drive it to Tampa.

I'd heard really good things about these machines. I'm inclined to believe them now.

New Career!

I have started a business. Studio PALS, LLC. I bought an Avance commercial, 15 needle embroidery machine. I've gone through many hours of training on it. I got digitizing software to create designs to use. I've had many hours of training on that, too. While I don't feel cocky, I am confident that I can produce a quality product. Go me!
