    Hi everyone,

    would anyone know where I could find out roughly what my pfaff 2044 quilt expression would be worth. I have checked ebay with no luck, and have tryed to locate it on a couple of used sites with no luck there as well.

    Thanks

    I took this info from another site where someone had a similar question to yours:

    contact Pfaff
    (800-99-73233)

    and ask if they have a blue book value on the machine.

    They also list a 440 808 6550

    and an email of pfaff@pfaffusa.com

    I just went to my Pfaff dealer about my 7550 and hobbylock 788serger. They actually havea "blue book" as well and can look up the current value according to its condition. Call your local pfaff dealer

    Thank you, I was unaware of a blue book for sewing machines
    I have since contacted pfaff via email to get the blue book price for my machine

    i think that what something is worth is what someone will pay for it at the time. on tuesday it might be worth $500, because someone wants it. on wednesday only $200 because no one wants it badly enough. the blue book won't tell you that part. if you're trading up, you may do best by using it to get a better deal on the new one.

    the other best way to sell is by word of mouth. friends can talk it up for you. the people they know will trust their judgement and not feel like they're buying from a stranger who would take advantage of them.

    also, i did pretty well on craig's list, but it took a while. i was glad to get back just a little over 1/2 for a 9" quilter and frame only 1-1/2 years old. it may not seem a lot, but it ended up being the best i could do. so.......

    not new is not new. that's why we look for good bargains on ALMOST new machines.
