    Thanks Cari...I think the thread was going in the needle the wrong way! I'm going to check it as soon as I get home!

    Cari, where DID you find that blue free arm Pacesetter!? And with a table that appears to match the arm cut-out? I've never seen one, and I bet it would send the ShopGoodwill bidders all a-twitter!

    My son bought it for me years ago as birthday present. I bought myself the white one a few years ago. Both are from Ebay. The table is from a thrift store, I think it has a Pfaff label but yes, the Brother almost fits like it was made for it.

    You need to post a pic of your machine. With 18 pages in this thread, it's hard to know what machine you're talking about.

    A lot of it wasn't any more accurate than any other opinions anyway.
