    I've never been on eBay before, but last week decided to give it a look for a Pfaff Expression 3.0. There was one, never been used, and (I'm still pinching myself) I won the bid! This is a $2100 machine and I got it for just $913!! The only machine I've ever had is a Kenmore 12-stitch that I got 20 years ago. It's a real workhorse, but I'm going into business next year and will need the ability to machine quilt and machine applique. I'm beyond excited and can't wait for my new baby to arrive! :-D :-D

    Wow! Good for you. The Expression 2.0 is selling for $999 new, as it's being discontinued.

    I have to say, I was really nervous waiting for the bidding to close. I hadn't wanted to go above $840 but at the encouragement of my folks, who were watching on their computer in Texas, I bid higher. I'm so glad I did. Still have some butterflies in my stomach. lol

    You will love your Pfaff! I have 2 Pfaff machines and a Pfaff serger. They are wonderful machines. My 7550, I've had for 12 years and the only thing I have ever done is regular tune ups. It's a real work horse and it sews like a dream! Congratulations on you new machine.

    Congratulations on your Pfaff. If it is anything like mine you will love it to pieces. Glad to hear that you got one that you wanted.

    Good luck,
