    does anyone know anything about these machines? I'm seeing one on my local craigs list for sale and wondering if it was a good deal. they are asking 100.00 firm and say it's a "work horse" and has made many thick quilts. just wondering what your thoughts were. I asked her for a model # and year but haven't heard back yet. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! thanks!

    I have one, the Shark Intelli sew model. Heavy duty machine. Every time my brother buys a pair of pants, he asks me to hem them, I use the Euro as it does the heavy canvas nicely.
    I got mine a few years back at $300 new.

    I tried either 2 or 3 and liked them but they all had problems [diifferent with each machine.] All were somehow defective [parts broke and such] and had to be returned. I didn't want to try again. They seemed too good to be true and that was what happened to me.

    However, a friend bought one and hers was OK>

    I got to sew on my DIL's last year. I thought it was very nice. Very quiet. she uses hers alot and hasn't had any problems with it. I was not familiar with this brand but was impressed with it.

    I have a Euro Pro Denim Deluxe. Hubby bought it for me about 10 years ago. It's a strictly mechanical machine but it works every time. My sister borrowed it to make diapers or something it was filled with red flannel fuzz when I got it back but a trip to the sewing machine doctor fixed all that. My only problem with it has been a little tension spring that likes to get stuck behind another piece. I'm used to it now so I just deal with it. It's my bobbin winder for my Voyager quilting machine and it's my travel machine.

    I made my first few quilts with it and my daughter & son both used it to practice for their Home Ec classes. I wouldn't let them use my computerized machines until they learned to use it.

    The throat size on mine is about 7" maybe a smidge more. I don't think it's as powerful as my Elna 7200 but it will get whatever needs doing, done without the annoying "Stop for your Safety" message that the Elna will give when it balks on a seam and has to be babied to get through. The Euro Pro will bog down but it keeps going, slowly, but going.

    It's not as quiet as my Elna but is more quiet than my Singer.
