    I've been watching Ebay alot lately, hoping to get a good deal on a big lot of thread, and I did this past weekend. I won an auction for 100+ almost full spools of thread. Most of them are 100% cotton and a few are poly blends. For this I payed 15.50 and it should be here by the end of the week. So exciting.

    Do you get any quilting/sewing stuff off Ebay? What's the best deal you ever got?

    I got a new Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 870 quilt sewing machine. It usually retails anywhere from $1,800. to $2,400. I got mine for $941.00 including s&h. :)

    I must confess, I love E-Bay. In ten years, I've only had 3 incidents and after all was said and done, got my stuff okay. Most people are very nice. My best 'sewing' deal was a king-sized top I won for about $40. It's a standard pattern but the lady who did it was fantastic! Every point matched flawlessly! This was a couple years ago and somehow it got put away and I found it this summer and had my SIL quilt it on her long-arm. I still need to make the binding and attach!

    eBay can provide lots of things for cheaper than buying it elsewhere.
    Just be careful if you use PayPal. They charged my account $700 for a transaction I never made. We've had a heck of a time getting that straightened out! The really odd part of it is that they had flagged the transaction as "suspicious" but still tried to get the money out of my account. If we hadn't stopped payment on it (after I spotted it while checking my account online), they would have took it out anyway. I will never use them again & have closed my PayPal account.

    I have bought on ebay for about 6 years. Haven't had any problems and have bought a lot of things.
    I guess I am addicted to ebay and the quilt board. HA HA

    I have found great deals on ebay. I purchased my DDL 8700 Juki sewing machine shipping and all for only $865.00 what a deal I checked around town they wanted $2400.00. I am very happy. I always check the sellers feedback.
