Default OK - I QUIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not OT - stupid Baby LockQuest Minus

I swear that the Baby Lock Quest Plus that they sent me "in exchange"
for that lemon Quest I had IS THE SAME
MACHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As long as I was piecing, or free
motioning on a thin wall quilt, which were the first 2 projects I
tackled, it seemed to work fine, though I did notice that the needle
threader caught and shredded the thread in THE SAME WAY THE OLD ONE
DID. Today I tried to free motion a larger, hug sized quilt and GUESS
WHAT?!?!?!? The stupid thing started skipping and the top thread
started breaking - Never more than a few minutes of quilting before
bamm - broken thread. changed threads. changed needles, changed
speeds. changed top tension. changed bottom tension. sometimes it
quilted for 5 minutes before the thread broke or skipped. I'm done.
with baby lock. I'm returning the machine. I'm demanding a refund.
Don't want to ever have anything to do with baby lock again. I refuse
to believe that I, of all the people in the world, CANNOT MACHINE
QUILT - having had lessons, classes, talked to the BL educator etc etc
etc. I'm not even disappointed - I'm just angry. Good thing I save
the letter for the President.

I just can hardly BELIEVE it! This goes way past organizing a pity party.
I think we ought to launch into a full-fledged rage! How dare they send
you a machine that was just as sorry as the first one? How dare they?
If the machine had been bought for $5 at a yard sale - that would be one
thing but as high as Babylock is priced ...this is just incredible.
It's been a while since we put your letter to the president together;
we'll need to edit it to demand a full refund. Their head on a platter may
be optional. Polly

I'd like to see you loan the machine to someone that has a machine
that does work and test it out for you. I can't believe that you
would get another lemon. This stinks. I have sworn off Janome
after the problems with the 6600 and the company's lack of help.
Do keep us updated on the mess.

I wish I could, Taria. The nearest dealer, who has been very helpful
in working as a mediator between me and BL, had never even seen a
quest until I brought mine in. There is an example of one of the few
disadvantages to living in rural midwest. I'm returning it, and
editing the letter as Polly has suggested. I believe that this is the
same machine. 3 reasons.
1st - it's doing exactly the same thing as the other one
2nd- I kept one of the screwdrivers that came with the original quest
cause it was so short and useful. The new machine came missing the
short screwdriver.
3rd, - the manuals are the same as came with the original.

I know a little bit about how appliances are replaced - the
replacement comes off the shelf, complete with all the extras that go
with it - they don't unpack the new one, trade the manuals, remove a
screwdriver, repack it and send it out.

I believe they only tuned up the original, slapped some pretty new
stickers on it that say plus, and gave it back to me.

I must say it smells bad from here. Did any of the documentation you
kept have a serial number for the machine itself (rather than the model
number) on it? That way you could compare with the one in your hands.

Rats, and double rats! I am so sorry to hear the' new' machine isn't
working properly. How very, very frustrating and disapointing.

Yes, do that if you can. Good luck!

Lizzy - thanks for that suggestion - I checked - and the serial number
is different
so my theory is incorrect - either the quest is not compatible with me
- or they need to go into the lemonade business.

I'm so sorry you are experiencing this once again! GRRRR.... I know
nothing about Baby Locks... and I'm a terrible free-motion quilter, so I
can't offer any advice. But I can send a gentle {{HUG}}.
