    Pfaff Creative Vision 5

    I am contemplating the purchase of a Pfaff Creative Vision 5 that has been upgraded to a 5.5 from a Pfaff dealer. It has all the features that I like, does anyone own this machine and if so are you pleased with it? Any input would be appreciated.....thanks!

    Hi Nikki,
    Do not touch a CV5 updated to 5.5 look for a genuine 5.5 The CV5 had a lot of problems I should know I had two and ended up with upgrading to the Full 5.5 The full 5.5 has different feed dogs and these cannot be changed in the CV5 so even though they are saying you have the same machine you do not. Since I got my CV5.5 I have not looked back I love this machine. To tell the updated machine from the full 5.5 is the screen has CV5.5 on it at the bottom. The lids can be changed but the screen badge cannot.

    That's not what I was hoping to hear Jenny but it is the input I needed and I thank you for taking the time to share with me. I think now that I will look ahead to the Creative Performance model, I love the IDT feature that they offer and definitely want to stay with Pfaff. Thaks again

    The last time my 2140 was cleaned he updated it. I'm still having issues with it, so I don't think I would either.

    I have the CV 5.0 and really love it. Yes, there have been some problems but my dealer has always stood behind it and had it repaired. I prefer Pfaff machines over any others, but the dealers are really what are the most important.
    Good luck,

    I bought the CV 5.0 and upgraded to the CV 5.5 and I love it! Mine has been a great machine and my first Pfaff. It is my only piecing/sewing machine as I have a Brother Duetta for my embroidery.
    PM with any questions.

    You are so right about having a good dealer, I am driving 3 hrs today to try out this machine because I've been burned by the dealer in my home town where I purchased my Creative 2140. I have a lot of faith in the dealer that I'll be seeing today. Thanks for your input.

    I have loved the last 4 Pfaffs I had but the new ones are now made in Taiwan or China, not like my first ones from Germany. My latest is the Smarter C1100 Pro. Sometimes the dealer can make a LOT of difference. Make sure you LIKE the dealer and can talk with them and they listen and are still helpful AFTER you purchase your machine.......................no matter what brand.
