I am looking to buy a new Sewing Machine and have gone to two different shops. One sells Pfaff/Bernina and the other is a Brothers Dealer. Both offer comparable services and warranties. The machines I’m looking at (a Pfaff Classic 2025 and a Brother NX 400) are comparable in price ($100 difference). Most avid sewers I know are biased towards the German/European machines. My husband, who is into electronics, thinks the Japanese produce superiour electronic boards. Any recommendations??
Also, I am trading in an old Pfaff 46 (late 60’s, early 70’s) – decent condition but needs to be tuned up. One store is offering me a $50 notion credit, the other store doesn’t want it. I’ve looked on Ebay and found an almost identical machine that is currently being bid on that started at $150 and is up to $285. How do I know if I’m getting ripped off and find out how much this machine is actually worth?
Any recommendations/thoughts/reviews/opinions are helpful – thanks in advance!
