Almost in Business

First off, a picture I snapped at the park today with my 3 little ones. It's kind of rare to actually have all 3 willing to be in a picture together. Must have had something to do with being up on the log near the river! Even if they make me go berserk at a grocery store, they are totally adorable (ages 7-1/2, 3 and 5). And now some shots of the weekend's construction...
table coming out of the boxes...all 400 pounds of it.

It's starting to look like a frame... especially after adding the rollers.
BUT...construction came to a screeching halt yesterday when we discovered the front rail has 3 mis-drilled screw holes. UGH...This means that the track that the carriage and machine roll on could not be screwed onto the table. I have left emails and messages at Handi Quilter, but there will be no response before Tuesday. This means I have a 12' rail to somehow get back to them, and get another shipped to me ASAP. I am SO ready to use this that this little setback is killing me. I had to settle on sewing my QBE blocks this afternoon instead of cruising my LA. ...sigh...
Soon, very soon

Oh geez that sucks, would you believe it's not the first time I've heard that trouble? Sorry. Take a couple of breaths accept that you wont hear from them until Tuesday and when you do reach them let them fix it for you, not the other way around. After all it's their mix up, whatever you do DON'T pay return shipping on the messed up piece. I'm sure they have a policy for problems like this, so breathe and try to relax (as difficult as that seems) they'll make it okay for you.

How wonderful to have your own long arm; but how aggravating to find the error! I hope it is all resolved quickly. Your children are adorable!

Oh in my house there would be lots of shouting and foot stanping about that! How disappointing

What a bummer, I would be having a good old fashioned hissy fit. Hopefully all will be well soon.

Are you going to be sewing in your basement? That is where my machine is. I painted by basement yellow. It was very hard to sew looking at the gray walls.
