    One or all?

    Another one of these "I'm having a hard time passing up" deals...

    I'd LOVE to collect these are reasonable prices, clean them and have them available to young (or older ) moms that are really wanting to sew. I'd love to have a ministry like that.

    and it says he'll entertain offers. It's a little bit of a drive, not too bad, so I might just have to make an offer!

    I'd afraid that I would definitely have to get them. Sorry I'm no help.

    If that is what has been laid on your heart do it and see where that ministry takes you. It make be the right path but you won't know until you try. Hugs and blessings and prayers for you and this new ministry that you are contemplating. Lorraine

    Make an offer. If he is thinking about scrapping them, he may take $50 (or less) for all of them just to get rid of them. Maybe offer $10 each? Let us know what happens...

    I had a MW clone that I loved - I wish I still had it. Buy them all - the 403 my go to machine - the Brother and the Morse are good... All worth the cash.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    A couple of weeks ago DD and I went to an estate auction, she was looking for a dresser that was low so she could use it for a changing table. Her DH was also in need of dresser. Well we hit the jackpot, she got both dressers that she wanted for $30.00. They had a couple of vintage sewing machines got them both for $5.00 brought them home and the one works really well and I think if the other is cleaned it will work also. side note this was her first auction and now she has been bitten by the bug she is always saying mom there is an auction ...............

    ALL If I was closer I'd be on their doorstep. I recently acquired the Brother and the Morse both are heavy-duty machines. My DIL has never done any sewing and wants to learn and she likes the old Morse out of all the machines I have to chose from. So for now she is doing mending. And wants to start making dresses for the 3 girls.

    My youngest daughter lives in Washington, but she doesn't sew, unfortunately, or I'd have her look at them...but I say go ALL of them. Whether you offer $10 each for them, or the full $25 each, they are a bargain! I have 7 machines in my house right now...8, really, but one is slated to be delivered to my sister.
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    What's the deal? How are these still available?

    I would have been there on day one and left with at least the Singer and the Montgomery Ward machines, and probably the other two as well.

    well, I did message him and asked him if he'd entertain offers on all of them. He didn't respond to me. I haven't tried again because it's a little more of a drive (gas $$ in my gas hog SUV not to mention an 18 month old along for the long ride ) than I really want to make unless I KNEW before hand that he would make me a great deal. Last week I didn't feel like I should spend the money on it. Maybe I'll think differently this week.

    Funny you should say this. I saw a great vintage machine on CL last night for $15 and thought it would be fun to buy a bunch in that price range that are working fine, and have younger women come into my home who want to learn to sew.
    Food, fellowship and fabric. I would take a good look at each one and offer a smidge less. Sounds like he's just wanting to unload them, and if the grandmother had 4 machines, she enjoyed her craft and probably took better than usual care of her stuff.

    Absolutely beautiful idea.
