    Did anyone here know about this? Guess they want to get in on the success they see happening with featherweights. If anyone has purchased a vintage Pfaff (shown on their website) or other European machines, please share it with us.

    If they're only decorative then what's the purpose? That's a lot of money for something that does nothing. To me it would be sort of like having a cardboard cutout of a man for a husband. . . . . .on second thought....LOL

    Those look nice, but I think they're going to get a LOT of complaints from people...you have to click on the "dimensions" tab to even read it's for decorative purposes only! There is already a review from someone who is "so excited" to finally find this machine and can't wait to use it...not good customer satisfaction building for PB I think! :thumbdown:

    I think they do sell cardboard cutouts of men that can recline AND comes with a cup holder and tv remote control holder too! ha ha LOL

    The sewing machine is nice but a lot of money just to sit there and do nothing.
