    I highly recommend this model as well. I have 3 Pfaff machines and they are reliable, easy to use and have great features. Good luck!

    Just found quilt with very close design at
    https://civilwartalk.com/threads/the-quilt-trail.76615/
    Made by a Louisiana Lady during the Civil War and called the Confederate Star Quilt within her family.
    Am I wrong to believe the same lady made my quilt?

    Any information related to Seven Star/Seven Sister/ Confederate Star Quilts welcome..

    I have several Pfaff machines. My daughter has the one you are looking at and she loves it. I love Pfaff machines and would highly recommend them. With the IDT you don't have to have a separate walking foot which makes it wonderful.

    what about a large apron? Aprons are super simple to make and you can make it high and wide in the front and it won't be quite as dorky as a bib. I would do a cotton fabric on the top at least, you could back it with synthetic if you want, if it's something too slick on top then a spill will roll right off it and onto her dress, you want more of a sacrificial type thing it seems.

    Love my brother. You just have to try them out to see what works for you.

    I have found that in many times that you might be using the wrong bobbin for the machine. I have found this three to four times with my sewing buddies.. and twice they didn't have the machine threaded right.. and YES they said Oh.. I thought all bobbins fit if they fit in the hole!!

    Clean out the bobbin area. You might have some lint that is causing the tangles. Make sure you are threading it correctly and the tension is set right. Make sure your needle is in all the way and that the pressure foot is down all the way (that machine has two lift settings for the pressure foot)

    Where did you get the stitch regulator for the Janome 1600P? Really want one. Would make using it on my Handy Quilter easier.

    I have 2 Janome machines. MC 6600 is my favorite machine. Not an embroidery machine but it has many specialty stitches and monograming. It also has a built in walking foot. Best feature for sure. I have quilted king size Quilts on this machine. I take it in once a year for a cleaning and tuneup. Love this machine. The only thing I had to have fixed is the needle threader $10. And the bobbin case wore out $25 and the knee lift needed adjusting $25 in the 8 years I have had this machine. Still runs like a champ. These are some of the pro's. I wish it had a bigger throat. The inner distance between the needle and right side of machine. It measures about 9 1/2". It is good, but could be better. Also it is a heavy machine. Which is good because it is made well, but makes it hard to transport.

    My other machine is a MC 1600 straight stitch machine. It has a knee lift and needle threader and is a well made machine. I use it on my Handy Quilter. If has a 9 1/2" throat too so I wish it was bigger.

    Hope this helps you decide. Happy Quilting.

    I made that quilt and I quilted it with meandering squares.

    I have the same machine, but I have not experienced that problem. I use the walking foot when piecing my blocks. That seems to help because you can dial in how the fabric is put through the walking foot. I don't know if that will help, but I hope so. Happy Quilting.
