Does anyone have any helpful hints as to how to get the needle clamp screw back into the screw hole? I inadvertently unscrewed the clamp screw all the way when I was replacing the needle, and now it won't go back in. No matter how I try (and other family members try) it will not screw back in. I called customer support and they were absolutely no help...just told me to take it to a Janome dealer/repair shop. I've only used this machine 3-4 times, briefly, and this is the first time I've changed the needle, and/or messed with the screw clamp. It's not under warranty, btw. If I can't get this screw to work, I can't use the machine (unless, of course, I pay a Janome dealer to fix it, which would probably be more than the cost of a new one). Anyone else ever have this problem? Or have some tip for me?

I am sure if you take it to a good dealer he will do it at no charge.

Perhaps. That would be great if he did. I'll call my local guy and ask him what he thinks about it. Maybe he's had the same situation with other Minis.
