    THanks. I think this book would be handy to have when you go to garage sales etc. And it would also be handy to show people (sometimes) that what they're asking for the machine is WAY, WAY too high.

    O.K. I'll ask:> What's "binging" it? :P
    Oh sorry about that. Bing.com is a search engine. lol sorry!!

    Try this http://sewingonline.info/books/
    scroll down to about the bottom of the page and you will see the Blue book of sewing machines. This one says 2002 to 2004 but it may have an update.
    Oh Man just clicked on the buy button and it says product not found. :hunf:
    Well I tried....
    :XD:

    have you actually seen this? does it also cover tables?

    Do you mean cabinets? Not sure..
    Butterflywings site was pretty cool though. It covers longarms, but still alot of info.
    You may be able to go to different manufacturers websites to get ideas for used machines.
    But one problem, they (the manufacturers)are going to inflate their prices even for used and the abilities of their machines as well.
    I agree that a "Blue Book" would come in handy.
    Have you tried consumer reports? They are unbiased.

    Yes, Consumer Reports does do sewing machines, but just a handful of models and manufacturers on a given year. Not super helpful.

    Oh sorry Butterflywing. LOL
    Had root canal done today so must have spaced that part.
    I thought it was still a very informative site. It didn't just stick with the longarm. Also covered piecing etc...
    Faith :-D
