Okay, after much soal searching and wondering, I bid on and won a brand new Phaff 1.5 Ambition sewing machine on ebay last night. It is still in its original unopened box. I bid 670.00 & with shipping the total price was 723.83. I am excited, but not sure if it is a good deal or not. Most Phaffs I have seen run over 1000.00. Too late to change my mind now, so good deal or not, I am getting a new machine. Can't wait till I get it. You opinions, please.
