I just bought a new sewing machine after a couple weeks of
investigating.  I pick it up this morning - Yeah!!!
I finally decided on a Pfaff 2042 (second hand sold by the Pfaff
dealer).
He said he knows the lady who owned it...that she owns about 6
machines and hardly used this one in favor of her embroidery machines.
I havn't read a single bad review on it and everyone seems to LOVE
theirs.  So, I think it will suit my needs perfectly.  And it has the
integrated walking foot and tons of other features that my old Singer
didn't.
I know I paid more than similar ones on e-bay but I am getting a
warranty and dealer backing....so I don't feel slighted.
We found and reported so many fraudulent sewing machine listings on
e-bay this past weekend that you couldn't even believe!!!!  Red flags
really go up when top of the line machines are "Buy it Now" priced for
$200 with free overnight shipping....from Romania!  These sellers
hijack legitimate accounts.  E-bay pulls their listings immediately
and then by mon. morning they are re-listed with another hi-jacked
account.   Some that even looked legitimate turned out being
fraud....so I finally went with my local dealer (about 30 miles away).
Anyway,  again....Yippee - I got a new machine!!!

Pfaff are excellent.  I don't like them because they don't fit my
fingers, but they are good machines!  :)

That warranty and a good after sales team are worth the extra!  :)

Hopefully my fingers won't ever know if they "fit" or not - ouch!!

Pfaff is the only make that has ever threatened to sew a finger!  Mostly
it's just that the controls are very precisely placed just exactly where
my fingers fail to find them!
