    A nice steal in Chicago area

    Cabinet needs work, head looks in good condition. I'd steal this one myself if I had the space for a parlor cabinet.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That is a nice machine and cabinet. I don't see anything that couldn't be taken care of fairly easily.

    I'm in the same boat, I have no room for any more. Not to mention I'm too far away. ( Yeah right, says the knot head that's driven to Indy a half dozen times for machines.)

    If I could get to it, it would be mine! Last year around this time, I was in the middle of a shop hop, and my brakes went completely out in Batavia. I live in Lockport, and I'm on oxygen to boot, so it was a bit traumatic. I still drive the same POS car, so I couldn't even think of making the trip.

    If I lived closer it would be mine by now. Love it. I can always use a new side table and give the grandkids the one I don't want.....

    Sue/DogHouseMom,
    You had me all set to hop in the Escape and head out to get it....There's an Elgin in Texas too.
    I've always wanted a Free in a parlor cabinet. Still trying to get the transporter beam working properly.

    I would love it but to far from FL, no room and DH chemo treatments are going to break us, before Ins takes over. Chemo drugs are out of this world costly, but if the work it will all be worth it.

    So, I could get my hudsband's cousin to go get it for me, then store it until this summer. Then when we go to Montana this summer, I could let hubby go to sleep while I drive, and go the wrong way to Chicago. Yeah, it could work. LOL

    Seriously, it's beautiful. If I lived there it would be mine.

    Not me ... although I've been thinking about it so much I wish it had been. Alas ... I hope it went to someone that will love it and use it. It sure was a pretty head.
