    I purchased my sewing machine, Janome 6600P, during a Christmas in July sale. I have never seen a package deal as good as I received. Christmas in July sales are worth checking out.

    I'm glad to see this topic! :D Couple months ago my Sis and I were getting fabrics cut at Joanns and I was standing there counting on my fingers :roll: Sis asked me what I was doing and I told her counting how long it will be till Black Friday. It dawned on me that we would be able to go this year because neither one of us is working now. We have never been to a BF sale before because we have always had to work that day. I can't wait! I'm saving a certain amount of money every week for this. I should have around $300.00. This will be a first for me and who knows maybe the last :lol: I can't wait!!!!

    Garage sales are your friend. I got a Pfaff serger for $40 and I don't even know what et al means.

    Yes, that makes 6 machines and 2 treadles I have now, and DH knows about 5 machines and 1 of the treadles so far.

    If you have sewing macine dealers in your area, check their trade ins. Many people trade in their machines often. The dealer goes through them an makes sure they work well. You can get a lot more machine for your money.

    Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving...at least from the retailers point of view. It is supposed to be the day that the stores have made enough to run in the black financially. Not sure that is the case anymore with the economy as it is, but...

Joanns had the Accuquilt for $199 and that is the cheapest I have ever seen it. I am still thinking that I should have gotten it, but ah well. I do know some of the larger Joanns do have specials on the machines at this time.
    Accuquilt is $199.00 at Amazon right now, so if your still looking.

    As for Black Friday, I have never gone out for one, ever, but my grown up kids love to shop that day. I just tell them what to look for, for me : )

    The only Black Friday sale I hit is Joann's. They have all quilting and sewing notions on sale at 50% off (they have for the past several years, anyhow), plus there's a coupon for an extra 20% off. I buy what I need for the year in needles, rulers, basting spray, buttons, zippers, velcro, pins, etc. at a significant savings. They will also sometimes has a loss leader item like a serger or machine, but maybe only one or two per store, if that. I try to stay away from the cutting counter on that day --- some of those ladies can be brutal about getting in line to have 1 yard of each of the bolts in their three cartfuls cut.
