    Short Arm system

    I talked to a lady that has a short arm 12 ft frame/machine for sale on Craigs List Little Rock AR She has to move and wants very little for the set up, $500 for it or make an offer. She was asking $2000. The description is unusual but at least she was honest. LOL

    It would at least merit a look. Did she give an address that you can Google? I wouldn't want to go to some areas without a look see first or go with a buddy. Am I a little over cautious? Probably but better safe than sorry.

    If it's not too far away from you, I think I'd look. You could be looking at great bargain.

    I wouldn't go to any house that had something damaged by a bullet. I have always had good experiences with Craigslist, but wouldnt risk this one, even if it sounds like a good deal.

    The bullet mark or how it got there doesn't bother me at all. I have been in contact with the seller. It's a 1/2 day drive for me to go look so I declined. I contacted a ex quild member that moved to the area. She said the seller is a normal person. LOL. Everyone that quilts in that area seems to have a quilting set up so it's hard to sell one.

    There was no mention of a make or model. CASH sale? I'd be leery!
