    Went to a large fabric store yesterday with my cousin and had to go to the attached sewing center for bobbins. While there, I drooled over the Pfaff Expressions machines as usual. Then I noticed the 2.0 was on sale and was about $1100. On payments I could do that, just barely. The sales gal came over and we tried it, I loved it and then she said she had a returned 3.0 for sale for cheaper! A sewer bought it, used it a few times and decided she really wanted the 4.0! So she traded it in that morning!

    I got it for $1000 with all warranties, lessons and etc. as if brand new! Plus she'd bought a single-hole plate and other accessories which she will thrown in for me!

    Its on layaway and I've already paid $50! So in a year it may be home! Anyone need their car washed? need their garden weeded, dog walked....?

    Yay for you! I love getting a great deal and love to see other get a great deal, too!

    You are going to be so antsy waiting on it to come home, LOL. But, just think, it may take a little while, but it will be yours forever.
