I love mine because of the larger throat space.
    Yes, that's the Acufeed system, isn't it?

    Yes, it is called the Acufeed system. I love the way it works. They also have a SITD foot that uses that system and I just tried it. It worked beautifully! I have the the open walking foot, closed walking foot (came with the machine) and the quarter inch foot that all use that system. I now need to get that SITD foot.

    My understanding is that the higher end Pfaff are made in Sweden, but still German engineered, and the regular line (still darn expensive) have been outsourced to China.

    Still German design though, I would hope?

    That's my understanding...I believe Pfaff sold out to Viking, or some other Swedish outfit...I could be wrong. I spent some time on a Pfaff board much like this (only geared to Pfaff users!) and that was the talk.

    But are there any machines that AREN'T made in the far east these days? And is that a BAD thing? I've got a machine from a UK supplier - not any particular brand - and it's made in Asia and it's built to last! Like a Land Rover! Solid as a rock.
