I just bought a similar machine a month ago. Tonight, I sewed through my finger. If you buy a new machine that you're not familiar with, please be extra-cautious for awhile. [Sigh]

OMG. I followed the link and went to the Brother Sewing Machine that was supposed to be on sale. It was listed at full price, so I went on chat. Wow, are they daft. Here is a copy and paste of that discussion.

Victoria: I see that we won't Price Match with deals woot, Jamey.
jamey: The woot deal IS SEARS DEAL. Good heavens, take a second and look at the woot deal. The deal is for a SEARS product.

Victoria: I am sorry for the advertisement. The current selling price is $249.99.
jamey: LOL, well, you might want to have someone that handles your marketing to pull the add from Woot. I seriously wonder if you actually understand that SEARS had to be the one to contact Woot for this add to be placed. Woot does not go out and pick a product and say it is on sale. SEARS had to make this contact.

Good grief, intelligence abounds. Someone at Sears had to contact Woot to do this. No wonder they are financially having problems. The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing.

@queenjava: You do realize that the deal was posted by a community member and not by Sears right? Odds are a deals.woot member saw the $149 price and posted it and it was later fixed by Sears before you clicked the link. Hate to tell you, but the sears employee isn't the only 'daft' one.
