I also posted this question on pattern review, so forgive if you see it there too. A local non-Pfaff dealer has a used Pfaff Creative Vision for about half the usual sale price. It's a trade-in. They offer only a bare-bones orientation to the machine and a 30 day return window. For the price, I could afford to pay for private lessons from a CV owner or dealer. Assuming that it were to perform well in a test drive on my samples, should I consider this? Would Pfaff dealers provide decent service for a reasonable price? I'm not (yet) into embroidery, so if it sews well, including the deco and maxi stitches and quilts well, that would be worth it to me. Since a new CV costs double and there is always the possiblity of a lemon or disappearing dealer support, it seems like no more of a gamble. What should I watch out for? What should I ask the dealer? I'll be very grateful for advice from CV or Pfaff owners or anyone with experience with this sort of thing.
