    I have no need of this machine. I have a 503, a 27 and a 185. I have a 15 clone and a Featherweight. I have 3 modern Pfaffs.

    Why does it tempt me so? What is so special about it? Yes, it's green, but it must fill some purpose besides good looks. This house is getting crowded.

    Someone please buy it so I can vicariously enjoy it and visit it on the board.

    What is wrong with me?

    Darren

    Darren, it is a beauty, but for $75.00 you probably could do better if you look at yard sales and goodwill. I bought 3 machines last week end for $8.00, a brother, a singer and one that was so old and heavy that I didn't even open the case, but gave away. There are a lot of good deals out there right now. Estate sales have so good ones too. Now go buy your baby~!

    But she is only $35.00 (not $75.00).

    Suchspace age design, combined with the soft green color - who could resist? I have an "old" Kenmore (70's) that opens up on top and in front so you can see the machine at work - and maintain it easily.

    I understand...

    No! Underpowered. Noisy. Clunky. The power cord is hardwired into the machine. There is no on/off switch for the machine or light. You can do soooo much better. It was a low end, cheap machine when new and it has not improved with age.
