    I have found 2 Pfaff machines for sale in my area that I am interested in. I have a great pfaff for sewing and quilting. Am interest in the embroidery features for the most part . . .

    #1 ... Never used, new in box. Pfaff Creative 2124 Embroidery machine. (asking $1,000)
    Comes with standard accessories.
    This Machine has a suggested retail value of $2699.99
    The Pfaff creative 2124 is the perfect embroidery and sewing machine combination. Its ease of use will free your creative energies - turning your ideas into reality will be a joy. and exclusive from Pfaff... IDT - Absolutely even fabric feed from both top and bottom.


    or:

    #2 ... Pfaff Creative Fantasy 7570 Embroidery/Sewing Machine - $800 [slightly used]

    Do you have any advice for me? Thanks!

    If you have a Pfaff dealer in the area I would talk to them about those Models. Go online and check them out. Do some homework before buying second hand. Ask to test drive them before buying.

    I have a Pfaff Performance 2056 that I use all the time. I also have the Pfaff Grand Quilter, that only sews straight stitch and I use it for machine quilting.

    When I was looking at embroidery machines, I looked at Pfaff and various other models, most of them were combination machines, sewing/embroidery. I already had a sewing machine, so I decided on the Janome 200E machine, it's embroidery only, it has a 5.5X5.5 hoop and it does what I need it to do and it fit the budget which now a days is a big consideration.

    I've done some online checking and they both look pretty good. The dealer is closed today, so will check tomorrow. I was just looking for any personal recommendations here. I appreciate the input.

    If you buy a machine used, in the box, would it still have a warranty?

    That's my main concern about buying used - for what it's worth.

    I have the 7570 - I purchased the machine many years ago mainly for sewing & it sews great - no problems. I took lessons for the embrodery part - did a lot of embrodery. I think the newer models have a much bigger area to embrodery and you can change and "edit" your pattern. Also haven't checked in a long time to see if the Creative Cards are still available for the 7570.

    I also have the Pfaff Grand Quilter - use it for quilting my quilts - only had it for a few months - but am very pleaseed with it.

    I have a Pfaff 7550 and wished I had purchased the 7570 back in Germany. They are wonderful machines and I love the IDT features! Good luck!

    if pfaff has a blog or website, find it and lurk. or sign in and ask questions. best way to find out what people are complaining about or raving about.
