    no long bed - I sighted a black one though - north of here...

    Hummmmm, I was going to try to talk you out of one of the 301's if you had a long bed! I am hooked on the 301 for taking to classes, socials, and piecing! I have also used it occasionally here when I set an electric machine up on the counter so I can watch TV with DH. My 15-88 treadle, that sits behind the sofa, is being used for quilting a quilt as you go right now - and, I am too lazy to have to switch the feet and thread for a different project! Anyway, if I find a 301 with a long bed for a reasonable price I will get one! I'm feeling guilty as I use to only take one of my FW's on excursions!

    Just like I thought, I have not received a reply to my e-mail asking about the 262 Pfaff. I made that reply look like I was really excited about the Pfaff too - told the people I love Pfaff's and really want to see this one! I am about to give up on the ads with no phone number! I think our e-mails probably go into spam!

    Miriam, I didn't but I packaged the heck out of it! I wrapped it in bubble wrap with plastic to keep it tightly on and used styrofoam for protection. I think I have the e-mail from the repair tech that showed me how to do it that I can forward on to you, if I can find it? Basically, the odds of it getting damaged were pretty close to nothing after I was finished packing. But, it took over an hour to do and probably $25 of packing supplies! Packing supplies are not cheap:< And I wanted this machine to get there perfectly. Which it did.

    Nancy- I hate it when that happens. I usually don't put my phone number in my CL ads, because I hate to talk on the phone and because my kids are terrible about taking messages. But I do try and email back pretty quickly, and then I give people my number. It's funny, because, having just listed 4 machines on CL, it is a lot of effort to make a listing. So, why do people not answer when you email? One of the mysteries of life. Laura
