Only one more sleep!

My 12000 is here and I get to pick it up tomorrow...yay! I'm trading in an MC11000 which has been upgraded to an SE; it's six years old and in excellent condition. Would anyone know how much I might expect for a trade-in? (I should point out that my dealer is offering me a good price on the new machine - comparatively speaking!) Feel free to email me privately.

At six years I would guess you can expect something close to half the price of a new 11000. Of course every dealer is different, your mileage may vary, yada yada. One thing working against you is that the 11000 price has been steadily falling, and as more trade-ins come into the market, prices will drop even more. You might survey the market (Craig's List, eBay) to see what they are going for now to get an idea if you are being offered a good price.

Thanks for the advice, Jim, I'll check the market. I want to be prepared
cuz any little bit I can save tomorrow will go toward goodies for the new
machine at some point. Have a good weekend, all...I won't be leaving my
sewing room!

May I suggest a menu of flat food, i.e. items that can be slid under the door to the sewing room? Pizza, cheese slices, thin bread. crackers. Spaghetti would fit, but it's so hard to push after it's cooked!
