A post from Kelli–
For quite some time now, I have been adoring my mom’s Pfaff 1200 Grand Quilter. When she originally bought the machine, she actually bought it for her original quilting frame. After she upgraded to her Millenium, she didn’t quite know what to do with her machine. She ended up keeping the machine and getting rid of the frame. And ever since then, she’s been in heaven and I have been jealous!
I’ve been stalking Craig’s List and Ebay looking for the same machine. I know it’s a beastly, heavy machine, so I figured that shipping would probably cost an arm and a leg. I had found a few, but they were a bit more than what I was able to spend at the time. I looked and longed. I even told Jason about my search and encouraged him to look on Craig’s list to see if he could find me one.
And two weeks ago, I found one!
I stalked it religiously on Ebay and hoped…and prayed… I had never bought anything on Ebay before, so I peppered the seller with questions about the machine and shipping and was super excited to find out that shipping would be the max of $50.00.
I even set an alarm to get up early on the morning of the ending date of the auction. I stalked and watched–And it was mine!!!! Wahooo!!!! Needless to say, I was just a little excited.
I stalked the ebay sale bill waiting for the shipping details and got a response the next Thursday. The seller had gotten an actual sewing machine box from a dealer in order to get everything packed up tight. I had it by Saturday and I was ready to play!
After a quick trip to Waterloo with Mom on Saturday, I came home and was just putzing away like a madman! I even told Jason that if he needed to work later on Sunday to go ahead because I wouldn’t get mad!
And play I have! I’ve been working on some string blocks and going through bobbins like crazy! So needless to say, I’m a happy, happy girl! Oh so happy! If you are ever looking for a machine and want a smooth, fast lady, this is your girl! She’s a pretty nice one!
