    Do any of you ladies/gentlemen have a Pfaff 2058 and if so, do you like it?

    What other machines have a wider throat?

    I have a Pfaff 2056 and don't exactly know what the differences are (not much, I'm sure).

    What I like about it:
    Pfaff's built-in walking foot.
    It sews great on regular fabric
    Has needle down and sideways position setting
    Does a good job on the blanket stitch and other fancy stitches.
    You can set the motor speed to half speed. Great for tricky corners.
    You can set the foot to raise when you stop sewing which is great for pivots or adding pieces in strip sewing. The foot sets down again when you start sewing.
    It has a knee lift also (which I am not comfortable with - but that's me)
    The display is easy and intuitive to read/follow.
    I've used the Alphabet in some labeling. Not quite familiar with proper setup but when it worked, it worked well.


    What I don't like:
    The lighting is very dim
    The low bobbin indicator is driving me to drink. (Once you see the message on the display, the machine sews the next three stitches with a pause between each stitch. Then you can sew a foot or so and then the stitchus interruptus starts again. arrrggghhhh!)
    It does not appear to like thin fabrics and sucks them into the feed dogs even when I use a leader.
    The bobbin winding is iffy at best.
    Small throat opening.

    I got a really good deal on mine and should not complain. If I had to do it again, I would also check out the Janome 6600. Not sure how large its throat is but someone did a point by point comparison between the two and the Janome came out ahead.
