    I recently got a settlement for a car wreck-not a whole lot and I still haven't found a job yet. I saw a Juki machine LA, with aluminum stand, stitch regulator,and QAC program, and about eight feet with it and plastic patterns for the stylus to follow, its all for $2700.00 does that sound good? I have sweatted over this for days, is there a better deal out there? Linda

    Got to be honest here, why are you looking to spend that much money if you are working yet?

    'Got to agree with this response. Prioritize! In this economy, there will always be a deal to be had. Take care of your family first.

    Are you considering using the machine to generate extra cash while you job hunt?

    I didn't think Juki made long arms? What model is this? If it's only a 9" throat I wouldn't pay that price for it. Job or no.

    I agree, with no job I would be scared to death to spend money for this. I don't mean to be a downer, this economy is just scary right now.

    First off, Jukis are not longarms. If you're thinking about doing longarming as a business, you need to buy a real longarm to attract most customers. (No offense to Juki owners, because it is a very good sewing machine.) And yes, there is ALWAYS a better deal out there if you wait long enough. Unless I had enough money in the bank to tide me over for at least 2 years, I would follow the advice already given and find a job first, and then I would make sure that job was going to last for a while before spending any "fun" money. (2 years because it can easily take that long to find a job in this economy.)

    It might be a good deal if you had steady employment. Keep the money. There will always be machines out there waiting for you once you get a job.
