    Amathyst02, I agree with you there, even if they did make really great machines now who would know. I did talk to a lady that bought a singer quantum something on here and was very very happy with it and she had other machines as well. So you never know. Everyone has an opinion I think it is best to try them out and look around. Also one time a Viking dealer did the same thing to me, he asked what kind of serger I had and I told him, he preceded to tell me how bad of a machine they were, I thought jeepers this guy is nuts.lol Needless to say that in the Past 38 years I have never bought a machine from him. I shop elsewhere.

Before I purchased my Babylock (at the dealers) I was researching a certain Singer serger. Now I had already heard that Singer was supposedly not as good as the old one, but I wanted to test this particular serger. So I called our local dealer to make sure they had one I could sit down and test. And what do they do?? They start telling me how awful it is, you can't get parts, you would not be happy with this, you should look at this machine instead. I ended up sending Singer an email. I am sorry but if your a dealer and presenting that company, you should not bad mouth them. I did receive a reply to my email too. Singer was very dissappointed in hearing this was the way the dealer was representing their Brand.

    The sad part is, what if, Singer was good again, what if they were producing high end machines that work wonderful and no one gave them a chance because of Dealers like the one I ran into. I personally just think its bad practice for any dealer to do that. Needless to say when I went shopping for my new machine, I did not even bother to visit their store. I would never purchase from them, even if they were the only place in town.

    Personally I think they should post their prices online, and just explain you have to come into the store to purchase it. For alot of folks that would save alot of driving around from dealer to dealer. As it seems they all carry more than one brand of sewing machine, and some carry the same as others.

    That is so nice to know that you are happy with your machine! Makes me feel more secure in my decision! Thanks.

    I don't understand the price differences. I got mine in June 2011 for $1300--and it was purchased in Fairfax, VA, which is a high cost-of-living suburb of DC.
    Thank you Wanda. I don't understand the price difference either, because we live don't live in a high price suburb. She said that was their sale price because the msrp was something like 2400.00 I think a lot of times they just say that with the higher msrp. She is a Bernina dealer also and all of their prices were like 3,000 off of the MSRP and had been for several months.

    Just makes one wonder if prices are so hidden because they try and get what they can, sort of like new cars. Or make the machines seem more "valuable" because of what one has to go through to get one.

    I bought a 6600P 3 yrs ago & love it. I had 2 dealers within 1/2 hr drive in either direction & both had the same price & were very helpful. I eventually bought from the shop that I take my quilts classes from, not as big of a city to drive around in. An other reason for buying from her is I could go in @ any time & take my free lessons on the machine. Sells fabric also!!
