    Smile I bought a new pfaff expression 4.0!

    I'm so excited. I just picked up my new Pfaff Expression 4.0 today. I have been looking for a while. I narrowed it down to the Huqvarna Sapphire and the Pfaff. I had heard good things about both and tested them out. I was nervous about deciding, but the built in IDT (dual feed or walking foot) was the deciding factor. I hope I made the right choice for me!?!?!? I'm hoping all Pfaff owners will think I did!

    I have a little Brother cs6000i that has been a good machine for me, but it's just too small for machine quilting! I'm going from a teeny, tiny space to a 10 opening, so now maybe I can try my hand at free motion quilting instead of just SID. It has the pivot foot and thread cutter too...yippeeeeeee! I was lucky to get a special pricing from the AQS show here in Michigan. It also comes with the Quilter's Box (on back order) that includes the extension table, special feet, etc for no cost.
    Tonight I'm going to sit down and read through the manual and check this beauty out! I don't have my owners classes until October, so wish me luck!!!
    Thanks for letting me share !

    I bought an Expression 3.0 just over a year ago and love it. Thought about going up to the 4 but I don't like to do the quilting so will stick with what I have.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    Congrats to you on your new machine! I have the Husqvarna Sapphire 875Q and wouldn't trade it for the world. I have heard that Pfaff is a great machine too so I am sure you will be satisfied with your purchase.

    Like MobridgeMom, I bought my Pfaff 3.0 just over a year ago and you'd have to tie me up to take it from me - unless you were bringing me a 4.0! I want the knee lift presser foot and the low bobbin warning.

    ENJOY!!!!!!

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Congratulations. I hope you love it as much as I do. One of my favourite things about that machine is that if you have the needle down option engaged, a little tap of the presser foot makes it go up slightly so you can slide you work in and chain piece, hands free. it is a fantastic machine.

    My fmq got decidedly better using the sensor matic feature.

    i am happy for you that you got this machine, Grandma Mary!
