Let us just say, yesterday did not go as planned ... sniff!
First, I want to explain that just a little over a year ago I made the switch from PCs to Apple computers. In the process I took a bunch of one on one lessons at the Apple store and now am pretty comfortable messing around, CAREFULLY, with computers.
So, when the lovely Bernina lady encouraged me, during my lesson, to just try all the settings "you can't hurt this machine", I took her at her word. Poor thing, I must have been driving her crazy saying "what's this do?", "what happens when I touch this?"
Turns out, I touched something on the screen that only the repairman (aka technician) is supposed to touch and totally froze up the computer. The lady couldn't fix it, even after she called her technician. So, I had to leave my machine overnight. It's fixed now, but the technician had to call Bernina central and have them talk him through fixing it.
I'm 99% sure of the thing I touched that I shouldn't have and won't again. And am glad it happened in the store instead of after I got it home.
But ... SEE!! ... this is why I've been avoiding a computerized machine for so long ... excuse me, a sewing computer ... ha ha!
And I am grateful for the 20 year warranty.
You know ... I just read over this and it sounds funny and in a way it is funny, but I can't tell you how SAD I was to have to leave this machine at the store after waiting for it for a month.
BUT, I'm going back today ... will report back tomorrow.
