  5. I LOVE snowflakes. I don't see this is for sale anywhere anymore. Is it possible?

    1. I found it- on Etsy only in pounds, not dollars, not sure what is causing that difficulty, and then a search on Crafty- rather than using the link- brought it up. Yay!

  6. Hello. Not sure if this is the correct place to type but here goes. I have a Janome Decor Excel Pro 5124 which I love. However it is stuck in straight stitch, the Pattern Selector will not budge. Any ideas. I have followed all the limited instructions in the Manual but to no avail... As I live on Norfolk Island, we don't get a sewing machine mechanic here very often. Thanks Kerry

  7. Hi Kerry,

    When a mechanical machine sits unused for a while, it can freeze-up. The culprit is old oil. The best way to remove that old oil is to spray it with WD-40. You can get to the part you need to, by removing the end panel – where the handwheel is. There’s one screw in the center, and I think there’s one or two on the bottom (I don’t have one here in front of me, so I’m going by pictures I can find on the internet.). Spray WD-40 into the stitch selector, which you can identify by watching what moves when you turn the stitch selector knob. Work it around by turning the knob and by running the machine in different stitches. Set your stitch width to its widest setting. Keep working it until it breaks free. This may take up to 20 minutes, so be patient. The tricky part is removing the WD-40 and the gunk it removed. If you have an air compressor, that removes it very well. If you don’t, you may consider taking it to a car mechanic shop or a handy neighbor who may have one. Or, you can use flannel rags and a new can of air. I use a long pair of tweezers to get the rag in deep, when needed. Here’s a link to how I use WD-40 at the shop. http://shesasewingmachinemechanic.blogspot.com/2014/12/using-wd-40-on-sewing-machines.html When you’ve got the WD-40 removed, re-oil wherever metal or plastic rubs together.

    Good Luck to you!
