I have been thinking I should join the fw world and get myself a machine I could carry easily to classes. Not every LQS I go to has a ramp and lugging the carrier up stairs is getting very old. I have found one locally for $185. There is no case which i priced out some on ebay. The machine works fine, scrollwork is in good shape, sews well..I have seen demo. and so I think I should just take the plunge and get it. The price is a lot less than ebay auctions from reputable sellers....any opinions out there?
