Accidents Happen

My three year old was hanging out with me the other day as I was sewing.  I had told him he could cut the thread scraps (with scissors I didn't think were very sharp).  All of a sudden my machine stopped.  I found that the cord to my pedal was snipped.  He wasn't hurt--thank goodness!  I called the repairman, but he was three days out.  No sewing for three days?  I decided to fix it.  I have seen my hubby do enough electrical work that I figured I could do it too.

Here is a pic after I stripped back the outer cover.

Covered with electrical tape.

I am happy to say that it works good as new.  And yes, when I can part with it for a few days I will get it professionally fixed.
