    This cabinet looks to be in very good shape but the machine, not so much. Seems steep at $350. http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/atq/3566859241.html

    Maybe it was a "top notch" machine in its day but good luck selling it at that price. http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/fuo/3644801091.html

    It wasn't even "top notch" in it's day. It's not a 401, as advertised, it's a 404. Straight Stitch only. That's what it says on the manual they took a clear picture of too! It might even be safe to say it would have been a "base" model back in the day.

    The price is completely out of whack too. I can't even sell a 401A here for a third that price, and it's a lot cleaner and doesn't need parts or a servicing.

    I love the table, but there is no way I would pay that much!

    So,.. it's sacked out too? That's what I've generally seen with the "seamstress owned" machines that have hit my desk so far.

    tad over priced but fully equipped

    I have a Singer Quantum XL-100 sewing machine for sale. It comes with a foot control, an ugly carrying case, a BUNCH of spools of thread, needles, books on patterns, and other stuff. I don't know anything about sewing machines, so please don't ask detailed questions about it. Yes it works. If interested, reply here or call/text me at 765-620-8887. My name is Josh. Thanks and have a good day.

    ad with attitude?

    Hey! I have a question. I've been seeing a lot of domestic "embroidery" and "Quilting" sewing machines lately, and the prices -seem- out there to me, but what's reasonable for something like that? (I'm thinking that $1k to $5k is a little much for used),... I would love an embroidery machine that didn't "suck", but I don't know how to pick one out.

    I figure they all suck - stick with your 411G, Tammi. Then go pay to have any embroidery you want done... LOL I haven't found any embroidery I want done or I would pay someone to do it. Much cheaper than buying a machine that would make me crazy. But my guess is you just want one to take apart and play with.

    I believe $40.00 would be a much more reasonable price, IMHO, than the $4000 listed.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I have that same cabinet with a 127-3 in it but got it for $100. The only issue with mine is the center drawer won't stay in the cabinet. I need to repair that.

    I saw a wreck of an old Kenmore today, in regular small cabinet, for $125 at a sale. I laughed. Then, I look on CL today and see this...500 bucks for a treadle, broken, minus machine.

    LOL! You might have something there. Learning how to do free motion embroidery is on my bucket list, but in reality, I don't think I've had a lot of things I've looked at recently that I've thought " You know what would finish that up just right? An embroidered design right there..." Though I do love the little featherweights you see on the covers sometimes...
