So I put the FW on CL. I know, I'm nuts. But she needs to be in a home where someone will actually sew on her! Already I've gotten 4 scam responses. I know because they don't put what I requested (and my request was in all caps) in the subject line.
And, when you click reply to their email, which only mentions *the item*, it's a different email than the one showing up initially in the yahoo inbox!

Just wanting to vent, cause I don't want to ship this machine! She's too precious to risk it, and it's such a hassle! I'll be patient. Someone local will want her!

Contact all the quilt shops locally and see if you get a bite. I bet someone is looking for just your machine.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Post an ad here on pattern review and specify the cities you will deliver to.
Its a good idea to meet in a public place like the library.

You could list it on sewitsforsale and state the buyer must be local .. listing .. I would hate for you to drive even 30 miles and have a no show.. thats the other CL problem. the no shows..

I was going to recommend the Sew it's for sale list too - dunno how local machine sales do on there but it's a well-trafficked list and I'm sure that folks are more legit than the craigslist boneheads.

Yeah I really hate that I have two and soon three lovely machines going up against the rusted out machines with no attachments, whose owners insist they are *firm* on a price not much lower than mine!

I just really, really hate the idea of shipping any of these. It's such a huge deal, and the cost is something no one wants to pay, unless they collect and understand I'm going to charge them for the bubble wrap, and tons of it - and boxes sturdy enough to withstand all the abuse.
When the guy shipped my Viking - wow! It took me 30 minutes to just get in there, much less un pack it all. It was the most marvelous shipping ever! I really don't want to have to repeat that. Ugggh. But, I know it would have to be done. I can collect air bags and styrofoam.

The 201 goes in her cabinet, so I'm really not shipping her. At. All.

Can you post your machines with your ASG group? They would be local and appreciate the machines. The previous suggestion of a quilt shop posting was a good idea also....
