I do so enjoy sewing on and maintaining my own FW.  Now that I have a new belt on my While FW she runs wonderfully.  I was using her today at a sewing event and the darn top thread kept breaking.  Now what?!?  After a number of times of rethreading both top and bobbin I couldn't stop it.  Hmmmm...  got to thinking...  Dummy...  last time you had a thread breaking issue the solution INSISTED I change the needle.  Hmmm...  so before he came over to see how it was sewing I changed the needle.  Lo and Behold!  Worked like a charm!!!  Will I EVER learn!?!?!  Try the easy fixes first!!!
