and tried out both mechanical and electronic sewing machines.  I kinda
liked the expression 3.0...(yes Polly, i DID smile!) but....they are
all now made in china. And, i try very hard to not buy made in china,
if i can help it.

does anyone have a pfaff 1530 or 40 they would like to see live in
NJ???

Hi Betsey,
I have a Pfaff 1540 that I love! And yes, it makes me smile, too! I hope you
can find one- it's been a great machine.

Re: and so I visited the Pfaff dealer....
I looked over at ebay to see if anyone had a 1530 or a 40.  Nope.  Buying a
sm on ebay is, of course, taking a few risks but I have done it several
times with happy success.  There's no dealer within 50 miles of here - the
nearest is a Pfaff dealer and I'm a Bernina person so I really don't have
the advantage of testing and lessons.
    I could not, would not (Sam I am) buy a China sm.  Might buy one from a
glazed-eyed guy in a raincoat out behind BigHearted Eddie's Pawn Shop but I
do have a few scruples.  Polly

I will just keep my eyes and ears open!  Now remember, i have a lovely
little viking 350...so i should not complain.  plus some other nice
sewing machines (a featherweight, an ellure for embroidery) but I'm
just so tickled with that little pfaff i bought my DD.....

well, you all know the drill.  I must confess, i have lust in my heart
for a pfaff.  but a NON chinese made one!

My LQS had a 2020 for sale not too long ago -- not sure if they still have
it or not.  I have a 2030 and a 7570 and LOVE LOVE LOVE them both.  True
workhorses!

Where are you?   (location-wise) --  Maybe we could work out a way to get
this one to you (if it is still there).

Betsey,
Where in NJ are you?  I can check out my sm dealer and see if they
have any used Pfaff's next time I'm that way.  Unless, it's near to
you as well?
