It was a great day yesterday, spent all day sewing with Paige. Things were moving right along, had to use the seam ripper a few times but that's to be expected when you are doing a lot of talking along with a lot of sewing. Things went well till 5 pm. When this happened:

That would be the lever that lifts my presser foot. Snapped right off. I guess the look on my face was hysterical. I was very puzzled at first as to what had happened. My machine is 10 years old, a Bicor VX1005 made by Brother. After realizing the problem, I did what anyone would do. Got out my Packer tool box.

Turns out it will be an easy fix, if I can get a new lever. I emailed 2 companies who said no, and today I managed to find another one, and I called them. He assured me he will "fix me up" and he will call tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

My cousin would be very envious of your Packer tool box :)

I am soooo sorry!!! I can just imagine your face!
I'm quite sure it was about the same as if you had broken a double point needle with tons of stitches on it, right?
Glad you could find another one!!!
What is this yarn diet???
