    Anyone received their FW shipping in the case and NO box or packinging? It did have more tape on it, DH started to remove it when we thought about taking pictures

    Oh my gosh! I can't believe they would ship it like that, not even in a box. But, I bought one on Ebay, and the guy did put it in a box, but, with no packing, and it arrived in shambles. I couldn't even use the machine, parts were missing due to holes in the box, so you are really lucky!

    She is beautiful!! does need a new foot peddle with cords.

    Hope I didn't post to many pictures of "Lizzy".

    She has a perfect stitch, fabic is puckering just a tiny little bit. Haven't used her yet to piece anything.

    For crying out loud! What was the seller thinking?! There's a saying..."doesn't have the good sense that God gave lettuce". I think it applies here. We all know cardboard is very hard to come by...

    Looks like it's in pretty good shape considering how it was shipped. How does the machine look? Hopefully she had a good trip as well and you'll have many happy hours together.

    From eBay?

    I'd ding his stars for that when you leave feedback.

    Stupid seller. Took a lot of risk.

    If he got the wrong kind of buyer, he would have lost the whole $$$ sale AND the machine. I would have made him sweat for a few days.

    Didn't/doesn't he realize the case is part of the whole package? So if it's dinged or now has non-removable labels on it.......

    Also, for any sale over $250, DelConf ain't enough. It HAS to be signature confirmation.

    Idiot.


    Aside from that, she's lovely. I wish you decades of happiness. ;-)

    anyone know where I can order a new foot pedal with cords?

    Add said it had one small area with tape, WRONG
    3 places. plus worn cord and 2 of the 3 areas are 1; coming out of the foot pedal and 2; wires showing coming out of the plug. Easy fix, get a replacement.

    Importantly she seems to work perfect, and looks great!:) I am in love.

    Wow, that is amazing. Nothing like that, but I received a bundle of fabric from someone wrapped in a garbage covered with tape....that was a first as well.

    Holy Cow! That is almost laughable! Just seeing it taped up like that is ridiculous! Someone could of stolen it seeing it was a FW. I hope it was insured and you had to sign for it! I don't believe a PO or UPS would allow something to be shipped like that! I am happy you recieved it without the case being damaged! I hope the tape came off easily! She is a beauty and I know you can get the things you need for her. ! have a site that sells stuff for FW if you need.

    I can't believe that someone would ship a FW like that! Did the tape come off the case with NO problems? I'm glad that your FW made the trip in good condition. Enjoy your BEAUTY!!

    Very lucky to have gotten it at all. If someone really knew what was in there that what it is worth could have just walked off with it. Boxes aren't that hard to find. Enjoy

    i have never seen anything so ridiculous! I'm glad everything is OK. I KNOW you will enjoy her! I have dealt with the April 1930's website that people have mentioned - very helpful and quick, great to deal with! I even found a walking foot for my FW (Baby is her name!) on the April 1930's site!

    That is incredible! You are so lucky that all is well. When I received my FW last week, the seller had peanuts inside the case as well as peanuts in the box the case/machine was packed it.

    Enjoy your new girl! She's beautiful!

    I could not believe she shipped it that way! I was in shock!
    The tape did leave a little residual, or removed a little color. NO I did NOT have to sign for it, sorry I missed the mailman, and he left it out in sight for anyone looking. Good thing it was not raining like it was on Wed, it would have been ruined.

    I had another FW from ebay and boy that packaged real well! Not mine, bought on behalf of a friend.

    This is somewhat comical. I would keep all the stickers on the case as proof that it came shipped to you this way. This makes a wonderful story to share with others, all part of this vintage machine's history. I love it! :)
