Hi,

this looks like a nice condition Pfaff 81, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pfaff-81-sewing-machine-elite-various-feet-spares-or-repair/182725798459?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

apparently the stitches arent forming, it could be that its threaded wrong, needle in backwards, or the timing may have slipped... Well considered machines tho and this one is very cheap and you can negotiate!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

It looks like it would be a good buy, apart from being quite dirty I would think anyone with a basic knowledge would be able to fix that in no time and no I'm not going after it, I'm still waiting for my Husqvarna 21e to arrive.  I know it was collected this morning so hopefully it'll arrive one day next week.  Can't say I'm too happy about it being stuck in the couriers depot over the bank holiday but I've insured it so fingers crossed it'll get here without damage.
