used machines for sale
I am streamlining my studio machines and liquidating most of my current ones. Why? It's simpler for me when teaching groups if every studio machine has the same features and functions. Eventually all of my studio machines will be the same.
I love each of these machines and have kept them professionally maintained. Please let me know if you'd like to "test drive" one!

This is a great starter machine with several utility and stretch stitches. It comes with 4 snap-on presser feet, 4 bobbins, bobbin case, the owner's manual and has only been used occasionally by sewing students for the past year.
Features I love for beginners: left or center needle position; 4-step buttonhole; adjustable length and width; storage compartment on removable free-arm table.
Note: I have two b33s at this price.
This is a computerized machine and is about 10 years old, very lightly used. It was a personal machine belonging to my daughter, who used it 2-3 times before she went to college, and then it sat boxed up for several years. I purchased it from her for my studio but only pull it out occasionally since it's my only computerized machine (esp. for students who have a difficult time controlling their speed).
What I love about the b20 is its speed control (beginners can have it at crawling speed!) and its many decorative stitches including multiple styles of buttonholes. It's a lot of fun to sew on, and comes with original manual, soft cover, and a couple of extra bobbins and presser feet. Like the others it has been professionally cleaned.
Pfaff Select 1540
This is a higher-end, heavy duty machine with lots of extras from the early 2000s. Pfaff is known for quality and this machine sews smoothly and can handle heavy fabrics. Features I love include multiple needle position options left to right, many utility/decorative stitches, Pfaff's famous IDT system which feeds the fabric from above the presser foot as well as below.
Comes with 10+ extra presser feet, lots of bobbins, the original manual, built-in accessory storage, a hard cover, and a recent professional cleaning. I find it's easy for new sewists to control the speed. This machine is no longer made, but if I could find several it would probably be my studio machine of choice.
