How many of you have hit the thread cutting button but meant to hit the back stitch button?
I know I can't be the only one who has done it (repeatedly) I hit it again today. Sometimes I catch myself and sometimes I don't. Kinda ticks me off! Jeepers!!!

It's happened a few times. On my primary machine this button is at the top of the row, just above the needle down button.

I haven't done that yet (I'm sure my time will come...) but it reminds me... I have one of those hybrid cars that has an on/off switch instead of a key that turns.

I'm in the habit of turning the radio on and off while I'm on the freeway... and I can't say how many times I've hit the power by mistake! Fortunately it won't turn off while driving unless you press it for 3 seconds... long enough for me to figure out why the radio isn't off.
