If there is any damage that occurred in shipping, please contact your local UPS office. They will come out and check the damage. Angelika’s Yarn Store LLC cannot start the claim.

Angelika’s Yarn Store LLC will not cover any damage to the machine that occurred during use. Angelika strongly recommends that pure cotton, rayon, and silk are not used on the machine. These fibers have no stretch, and the needles will struggle to knit them off. This often leads to the needle’s butts being shoved into the side of the bed and causing dings. These dings will cause future problems. Angelika recommends wool, acrylics and blends. As you learn your machine, wool and cotton blends may be introduced.

Angelika’s Yarn Store LLC also recommends that the carriage is moved back and forth at a sedate speed. Do not drive it back and forth fast. When jams occur, and there is a lot of speed and pressure on the carriage, the bed will be damaged.
Love your machine but start slow and easy during your learning curve.
