Sewing Machines for Sale

Are you participating in the FabShophop? If you don’t win a sewing machine from the FabShop, I know of several that are for sale by local people. John Wilkinson is selling a Bernina Artista 170 with all sorts of extras and the cabinet for $2200. For more information, call him at 518-295-7352.

If you would rather have a Huskavarna Designer I with all the goodies, a Huskylock Serger or a Singer 221 Featherweight, call Grace Whitbeck at 518-827-3150. I haven’t actually seen any of these machines, so be sure to put them through their paces if you go to look at them – or any other machine, actually.
