    plenty of stores have in the past year
    Sewing / Embroidery machines have been difficult to get

    this looks to be a floor model

    Well, it does have a camera and screen--I can't say I've seen a high-tech sewing machine like that before. Then again, the last sewing machine I looked at was probably using tech from the 90s.

    Looks like it operates automatically? That's neat.

    I sell sewing machines all the time. Send them my way

    My wife has one of those with very little use - maybe good time to sell...

    I still think pinball is overpriced. I have a bunch of commercial grade embroidery machines and we make hundreds of thousands in profit off of them yearly. Hard to do that with a pinball machine.

    Time to summon CrazyLevi -- [insert car analogy here]

    I hope there is a sewing forum where people bitch about overpriced machines, show off their mods, talk about upcoming releases, and share pics of their sewing rooms.

    I assure you, there is, lol.

    My wife enjoys sewing, as much as one can enjoy sewing, and her Singer is probably 40 years old and running like, a, uh, well oiled sewing machine.

    Just for the sake of argument......

    A pinball machine is the end product of many other processes, including CNC machining a playfield.....

    The sewing/embroidery machine could be viewed the same way, no? With the end product being a quilt etc.....

    So when comparing the price of a CNC machine to this fancy sewing machine.....

    Yeah, all this shit's expensive.

    Is that 7999.99 or 1999.99?

    #19 66 days ago

    if only they could solve the clear coat bubbling and chipping issues on those embroidery machines... Are you listening SINGER! we know you don't stand behind your product.

    My mother's quilting machine and all it's attachments cost a hair under $20K, which was also a hair over what my parents paid for their first house in 1967 or so.

    Shit's nuts.
