You all know me, so please don't think I'm trying to sell something here.  I
know better.  That said, I have a question. I've run across the embroidery
unit to my mom's Singer 6268, and two manuals that I assume go with it. Is
it worth trying to sell it on Ebay, or should I just give it away? Mom hated
the machine, and traded it for the Phaff I'm currently using. Why she didn't
give them the embroidery unit will remain a mystery, but now I don't know
what to do with it.  All of you geniuses must have some ideas, so I'd love
to hear from you.  Thanks bunches,

Re: Singer 6268
I would Ebay it.  Even if you don't get a lot for it, it's better than
having it hang around the house.  If you can find a good home for it
otherwise and don't want the hassle of listing it, go for it!  Look on ebay
first, though, see if there are many similar units, and see how well they're
doing.

Re: Singer 6268
Maybe the store where she purchased the Pfaff (very
smart choice!!) will allow you to trade that Singer
stuff for some Pfaff accessories, such as specialty
feet. Worth asking!

Shipping is so expensive these days, you might have better luck
advertising locally. Does your LQS have a bulletin board?
I'm in the same quandary with this worthless Euro-Pro my husband
bought for me two years ago. (why do they do that?)....It's been in
the closet and I don't have room to keep stuff I never use. I've
seriously thought about putting it on Freecycle.

Sherry and TL:
You both might consider taking an advertisement in the
newsletter of your quilt guild. I bought my sewing
cabinet through such an ad. HTH.

Well, yeah, I thought about that. Except this machine is truly so
horrible, I'd feel bad pawning it off on someone else for money. I'll
probably give it away (and even then, warn the recipient!)  :-)
It's a nightmare to thread. The stitches are ugly and loose, no amount
of adjustment helps. It's just one of those ultra-cheap things. DH was
home with a broken leg watching the shopping channel and bought it. I
must supervise his viewing more :-)

Re: Singer 6268
You could try listing it on www.craigslist.com; they have quite a few
rather localized lists. If you can find a local buyer, you don't have to
pay for shipping.
