Yes you can still get bargins but us quilters are driving the prices of FW up. Quilters want them badly to carry to quilt class and such. Many are willing to pay the $400 to $600 price tag for them. I was talking with a lady who repairs them that comes to the toga and she can't keep up with them. I really don't like the FW but I am a guy so what do I know. It is like one gets one at the quilt class then they all want one and they will pay.
