I was only able to talk the dealer down $50 on the BLCS, so I am getting it for $925. It's the best deal I could find anywhere locally, and I think I'm going to like this dealer (even though they are an hour away).

I hope to pick it up tomorrow if I can get off work early enough. Working really gets in the way of my hobbies!

Also, it looks like my Mother's Day present from my children may be a subscription to PatternReview so that I can be a full-fledged member here!

I was just now wondering if you got your machine and there is your post! I am glad you are getting it. That is a good price, especially if you get lessons. How about the cleanings? Do they do a special with them?

I am picking up my machine tomorrow. I should be able to play around with it some.

Congratulations! I love my BLCS machine. Be sure to check out *Debbie Cook's automatic method* of pulling threads to the wrong side. :-D It works, whereas the technique in the manual didn't for me.

Lovely! Do you know if he'd take an over the phone order? My local Babylock dealer says he can't order and he doubles the price of everything. I can never get a deal with him.

Zaida, I got the last machine that (my dealer had) at this price. I guess the price that THEY buy them at might vary? I didn't know that. They did say that if I waited and someone else bought it, that they would have to order one for me and could not guarrantee me the lower price.

Of course, that could have just been a sales pitch. If it was...it worked!

Subject: IT'S HERE! Date: 5/10/06 9:33 PM

I picked up my machine just a few hours ago. I've got it out of the box and I've threaded it and tested the stitch. At first the threads were all loopy on the back, but then I realized that you have to really make sure that the threads are in the tension discs. Set them in firmly, and all is well. I can tell that this machine is going to be a joy to use.

I'm flipping through the manual right now to familiarize myself with the machine. I have to say, I was not very impressed with the manual when I took it out of the box, but we shall see how it goes. I wish the pictures were in color and a little bigger.

I'm so happy!

Here's a link to the method. (Debbie hates for it to be called her method -- She learned it from someone else, but she's been educating a lot of folks with her great explanation and visual aids.)
