    How about this one:

    Twice what the price of it is new, and no pesky warranty to worry about.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Perhaps not. I sent a "reply" to their ad:
    A friendly note:
    Walmart has this machine on sale for $115, down from its regular price of $127. Singer's site says it should be priced at up to $149. That would get someone a warranty as well. You may want to revisit your price.
    Or one of the newborn suckers out there grabbed it.

    I sent them an offer - they refused - I wish them the best...

    It must be the sewing stool that jacked the price up so high. Hasn't the seller ever heard of spell check? Sowing Machine, coversation peice?

    Sowing machine will work in spell check ... strangely enough my husband and I own a company that manufactures sowing machines
