Okay,  I am hoping for a little reassurance from anyone who will give it
I just bought a BabyLock Imagine Serger and please, please oh please tell me I got a good deal. I paid $799 and including the serger and got 6 feet (ruffling, elastic, cording 3mm and 5mm, blindhem and beading) workbook, video, reference card and four spools of Maxi-lock thread.
After I bought it, I came across some bulletin board that said babylock was lowering the prices and now I am worried that I paid too much! Thanks in advance-

I'm curious about this too as I think I'm going to buy the Imagine sometime in the next few weeks.  I went in today to test it out but they were closed.

I think that is a great price, I paid about that for a babylock eclipse, no extra feet, and the imagine is a step (or 2 up) from the eclipse.  It has the air threading, which I think is awesome.

I got my Imagine about 18 mths ago. First - I love it. Second I'd say you got yourself a really good deal.

Thanks for the reassurance!  There seems to be big differences in pricing and now that several companies don't allow prices to be listed on the internet, you never know what everyone else is paying.  I feel better now and am so glad I ended up getting this paticular serger. I haven't heard any complaints! Thanks again!

I'd say you got a terrific price! I've had my Imagine for about a year and a half and I paid $1100 for it! But I have loved every minute of using it and hope you'll love yours . . .

It looks like you got an excellent price, allie. By the way, what state do you live in?

I went into the dealer today to try out the Imagine and they quoted me 1099.  I said "thanks for your time" and proceded to leave at which point she discussed alternative pricing but she didn't want to budge on the price though she was willing to throw in the box of 6 feet.  I asked if she'd throw in the lace foot and she said no.  

I mentioned your $800 price and she warned me of the dangers of buying online.  :rolleyes: Why does buying a sewing machine or serger feel so much like buying a car?  

I told her I wasn't buying anything until the end of the month at which point she waffled slightly and said if the owner got a better price later in the month they could lower the price down to $999 or if I got a lower price in writing from another dealer they would match.

Incidentally, I asked the same question on sewing world and the cheapest answer I got was $999 in Mesa AZ (I'm in Phoenix...same area).  

The truth of the matter is I don't mind paying $1099 if that's the going rate. But if it's not I don't want to end up feeling ripped off.

Yahoo!  I bought my Imagine today for $999.  That included the set of six feet.  I also bought the lace foot using my 10% ASG discount.  

I've been playing with the serger for the last hour and am so impressed with how easy it is to use.  Now I want to make something.    :tounge:

Hello fellow Imagine owners - do any of you have tips for making curves? I keep trying, but my efforts so far have been dismal failures! I've tried both with the cutting blade running and in the locked position, but no luck. Any suggestions?

mezzobean, when serging all shapes should be pulled into as straight a line as possible.  If serging a circle (circles smaller than a coffee mug are nearly impossible) simply use your left hand to pull up the center a bit which will pull it into a straighter line.
