    I am leery of factory refurbished machines, this can mean that it was only out on display, used a few hours to demonstrate, to it was abused and sent back and they may or may not have found all of the problems. I found many refurbished machines when I was looking for mine, and for not much more I found brand new ones. Saving a $100 or so now may not be such a wonderful deal a year from now.

    Good luck on your search, but, if at all possible go and try one out at a dealer first, even if you end up buying the same model online. My Singer has problems going through some of the seams, and I am only sewing 100% cotton fabric in my piecing.

    Good luck in your search! :D

    my bought-brand-new singer (different model) performs beautifully except for one thing: i still haven't managed to get any decent machine applique done with it - even with the lightest weight fusing product. i think the problem is probably me, but ... my other machine sails right through all weights.

    here was an ad at the bottom of this discussion page. It took me to :
    http://www.shopzilla.com/7S--Sewing_Machines_-_cat_id--13110105__keyword--quantum%20singer%20sewing__nwylf--

    There are a number of on-line stores that sell Singer as well as other brands. Do a Google search and you will be surprised at what you come up with.

    I ordered an inexpensive Singer for my daughter from Allbrands

    then there are others like: http://www.sewvacdirect.com/

    You might want to check these out before you buy something you are not sure about.
