3. What items in your house can you trade for a new machine? Think Cash In The Attic !
4. Ask your friends and family to donate items to your sale, with the promise you will make them something ultra fabulous after you get your machine. (People are more willing to donate items than cash.)
5. If you don't quite raise enough money, keep checking the internet for discounts. There's always someone out there who bought an expensive machine and never used it. Be ready with the cash to pounce on it!
Here are some places to find used, or discounted machines: Craigslist; Ebay; local fabric shop bulletin boards, and newspaper. Look for new machines at Overstock.com & Amazon.
Local: Check the machine to make sure it has the bobbin casing, cords, and ALL functions sew correctly. Buying a machine from a major internet retailer is usually protected, but many are refurbished.
Refurbished has a wide variety of meanings ranging from a damaged box to being thrown out the window by HULK. Be an aware buyer and look at everything in the description.
Until next time.......
