Marie's Sewing Center at the Woburn mall (intersection of 93 and 95) has a good selection of used sewing machines.  Last time I was there, they seemed to have some decent stuff in the $100 range.  My guess is that this might be worth the extra $ over the inexpensive ones at Target?

sears bought the kenmore name and has been cheaply manufacturing awesome sewing machines with great warranties for a long time now!  i originally bought a necchi lydia (from the 50s) at a local store here in providence and then realized i needed something much more capable, i checked out tons of stores, and sears had the best deal.  i've had my machine now for about 3 months and i LOVE IT.  i use it almost every day.

love,
susie

Well, I know you are looking for something cheap, but sometimes the extra $ makes it worth while. I have a Husqvarna 230, it was originally $800, but the last of a discontinued model they had in the store and I got it for $400. which seems like a lot still, but 6 years later and it is still working great, I haven't ever had it break down on me, and I really push its limits by sewing things like fur fabric with it.

Anyway, you can also check out salvation army stores, and get an oldie but goodie, stick to brands like phaff, or singer, and get it fixed up at sewing machine store. That might be a cheaper way to go, and you could get a really good quality machine that way too.
