    Too many FW's

    I have 5 FW's and a 301A and need to start downsizing for a final move near my children. I want to keep 2of the FW's and an extra 301 that I have. I am a "senior" who is not well versed in selling or shipping and wondered if there were someone in the Nashville TN area looking to buy. I love this club!

    You might want to post the machines for sale in the Classifieds here on the board (Items to trade/sale). The FWs are easily shipped...just need to pack them well. People are looking for the FWs all the time.

    Good luck!

    I would recommend checking out your local quilt guilds and possibly placing an ad in their newletters. It probably would cost you little or nothing to do that, and you would likely be comfortable with anyone from that group who might want to come to your house to select a machine. It is a better alternative than a newspaper ad or posting on Craig's List if you don't want to have so much contact with the general public.

    Another option is to contact your local sewing machine repair shop and ask if they know of anyone looking for a FW. If you absolutely do not want to deal with the public, you might be able to sell the machines on consignment through that shop or an antique shop.

    Selling locally has the advantage of not requiring packing and shipping, but limits your prospects.

    Good luck!

    How much are you asking for them? If I can afford them, I'm interested in them. I'm only a few hours away and willing to travel!

    How much are you asking for one of your feather weight machines? I do have a friend in TN and maybe we can work something out. Snowing in Wisconsin. Do you have pictures you can send?

    I too wish I lived closer to you, I am trying to get enough FW's to teach my three granddaughters to sew when the time is right. You should post them here on the board, many quilters would love to own one if the price is right, we would even pay the shipping charges
    happy to have enough stash fabric at all time

    Going thru your local quilt guild is the best and fastest way to get them gone fast. See if they can put an ad in their newsletter and I'm sure you'll have no trouble what so ever. Do your homework on the pricing though. Don't cheat yourself
