Sewing machine from a friend, she said she thinks she paid $55.00 for it, I just paid her $25.00, unopened in the box. I like to sew curtains, pillows, lace onto my daughters t-shirts, stuff like that. Did I get a good deal...I am thinking I did? It is awfully light, unlike my 1970's Montgomery Wards!

I have that machine. And yes, it is very light, I like a heavier older machine but this one is a good little machine. I also have a Brother XL 3010, which I like even better, my hubby got me this one at a yard sale for $20. The other I bought at WalMart for $74, and I thought that was a good price too. I do like the older, heavier built machines, those are metal and I think last longer than these plastic one do.

It's just basic zig zag and straight stitch.. .My mother in law got a Brother at Costco a few years back and it is awesome! I have taken my mending there when we go on visits... I am actually just happy to have a machine again! I am really going to enjoy adding lace and trimming to my daughters bluejeans and plain t-shirts! She is getting her own room real soon too and curtains, bedskirts and throw pillows are in the future! I just love doing stuff like that!

I was just looking at the box, I totally overlooked the price tag, it says "$55.00"...yes! GOOD DEAL! Thanks all!

I think $25.00 is a good deal. I see sewing machine all the time at garage sale and thrift store for $55.00 to $60.00.

It sounds like a good deal to me, even if it only does the basic stitches. How very nice for you - I hope you have a lot of fun with it.

Its good that you know stitching. I dont know stitching so i dont have the need to buy a sewing machine. Whats the original price of the sewing machine?
