Subject: singer 4166 - PRICE DROP Date: 6/15/09 7:34 PM

i read a couple of reviews here on the forum and in the reviews section.

i'm soooo tempted.

has anyone had any problems with this model?

i already have a kenmore 3/4 machine and a janome (can't recall the model, but it's a basic one). DH would freak if i came home with yet another machine.

ETA: i also have a singer serger which i use and love.

price is now $99.xx!!

i remembered that the sale price was going to end around
7/31/09, so i went to costco and saw that it was even lower. there were only about 6 more boxes on the pallet, so i grabbed one! DH was supportive.

the "deadline" on the little price poster said "until 8/17/09" but i think it's just so that they can clear it out.

That is a fab price. I paid almost twice that last summer for mine. I'd buy it again. I just last week used it to make the Sassy bag by LazyGirl (while the xl6000 was making a matching in-the-hoop wallet) and it had no problem going thru the layers of batting. Even topstitching over the area where the front, back, flap and handles all meet was smooth.

Have you ever used or know anything about the basting functions of this machine?

The singer website mentions that this machine has a basting stitch but I can't figure anything more out about it.
