I've been looking at sergers for some time and just sold one old serger. The other one that I purchased, but then found was damaged, is going to be either sold for parts or just "junked" as a lesson learned not to buy sergers at estate sales. I just recently purchased the Janome Magnolia. I've only used it at a quilt show (from a local dealer) and have tried it out a couple of times, just practicing but like it so far. At the same time I've always wanted a Babylock & do have problems with hand tremors & partial vision loss due to past lupus flares. I just saw a Babylock Eclipse on a yahoo site that I belong to for $650 plus shipping, but my husband wants me to get rid of some other machines first, plus I just bought the Magnolia, although I don't think I would have much trouble reselling. In the past couple of years I've done mainly quilt piecing, but have bought quite a few patterns, taking classes, and into garment sewing for both myself, my daughter, and a baby she is planning on having.(I'm sewing in advance for the baby, as i made a baby quilt for each of my 3 children, because my disease progess is progressing although I've fought this disease for almost 30 years, have surprised the doctors more then once when they told my husband I wasn't going to make it, and now in strenuous rehab for when it strikes again I will be in a better position to fight it off. At the same time I want to sew several baby items for both my daughter & two sons in the event that God has decided that it's time. In the meantime I'm enjoying my new Pfaff 2140/2170. I've been working with a local opthomologist since May and he is very optomistic plus I have adjusted , and am able to sew with the help of magnifiers. When my hands tremor (they don't constantly) I'm not able to do anything that requires dexterity. Is this a good price for a Babylock Eclipse DX? I'm still considering. As always thanks. This group is great , and I appreciate all of the wonderful advice that you have given me.

I forgot to add that I have spoken to the person in length selling the serger. She only used it twice. She seems to me to be a very honest person & said she is willing to work with me if I can't pay for it all at once.

Just realized I posted this under wrong heading & rewrote under serger topics. Tried but couldn't delete .

Then, e-mails were written on paper and put in weird paper things called envelopes and the postal system delivered them. This was slow. Finally, e-mail as we know it came around."
