    If it sounds to good to be true

    ...it probably is? Saw this listing on Craigslist. I emailed requesting additional info, but have not rec'd any reply back, as yet. If it's for real, it'd be a GREAT buy for someone! I'm not affiliated, just passing on what I stumbled upon.

    So many quilters in that area, it probably is a valid post. But it may NOT be the machine you are thinking it is. I hope you will ask for a thorough demonstration first. Good luck!!

    Some of these longarm machines that are 10-15 plus years old are priced in that range. Most can't be retro fitted for stitch regulation and are tanks-heavy and cumbersome to move about. So....price of course is great, but many times they are only worth that amount!

    And if they ask that the money be sent by Western Union, it's definitely a scam.

    I don't know, but I wish I had the room for one!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
