    I love ebay!! I just recently bought a BOM from ebay that was brand new. Each month was 17.95 when they bought it and I got the entire year for $30.00!!! You can get some awesome deals. They also have daily deals there that I get every now and then.

    I have bought a lot of fabrics and quilting notions and patterns from ebay. Prices in Canada are so high that I would have to slow down on my quilting if I couldn't get deals on fabrics etc. Now I have bought a lot of fabric, etc from people on this board so now I have 2 places that I get my stuff from.

    I've used E-bay for YEARS!! I recently got my Featherweight from there. Only ONE bad experience in all my transactions!

    I bought my 8700 on ebay too. The machine head was broken when it arrived so I had to send it back. The seller did not provide any customer service, and I'm so unhappy with them. However, the replacement is supposed to be sent out on Monday. If not, they are going to have all kinds of ugly comin'!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I've used E-Bay a lot. My latest find was a 1952 Singer 15-91 for $63 including shipping. It is in great condition. I've also purchased fabric, feet and other notions for a good price.

    I have purchased lots of sewing items from e-Bay. Sewing machines, presser feet,quilting rulers and templates,thread,fabric,you name it. After all these auctions, I had trouble with the seller only once. Sometimes I've gotten very good deals on e-Bay.

    I've been buying on ebay for years. If you are thinking about buying a longarm machine and want tops to practice on, there are lots and lots of flimsies.

    And many sad stories from estate sales: closets filled with finished tops that relatives didn't want once they found out the cost of batting, backing, and paying someone to quilt the tops.


    2013 will be my year of finishing UFOs: I don't want to be one of those old ladies who never finish their quilts!

    Just make sure to check the feedback. I was so excited to find an Elna SU (circa 1965) with the electronic foot control that I skipped that part. BIG mistake!!!

    Why was I buying another machine just like mine for $200? The electronic foot controller disappeared in our move to Kaua`i and the only dude with replacements online was charging that much just for the controller! My DH said we could use the ebay machine for any other needed replacement parts.

    Long story, short. He overcharged for shipping and replaced the electronic foot controller with a piece of cr*p. I complained and he blew me off. I complained to ebay but by then multiple complaints about the seller's business practices had got him banned.

    Eventually I bought a third Elna SU through ebay without any problems and got a whole box of cams included with the machine and the needed controller.

    Of course, six months later I found the controller in one of the few unpacked boxes. In a box marked "Towels".


    Sweet Elna is still my backup machine:

    Now I'm the proud owner of a Husqvarna 875Q. Bought at an AQS Quilt Show in Knoxville, TN.


    Sorry to be so long winded .....
    If life gives you lemons, make Limoncello!
