You probably already bought your machine but I wanted to tell you I have a Pfaff 2036 and loved it. So when they came out with the Expressions 4.0 I bought it because I quilt my own quilts. It had the longer throat and thread cutter which I really wanted. Terrible machine. Nothing but problems with it when free motion quilting. The thread breaks about 8 times when quilting one block. I am so disappointed. I hate it and spent quite a bit on it. Piecing your quilt or using the decorative stitches is great. But DO NOT buy it for free motion quilting. I just don't know what to do now since I spend so much I can't afford to buy another one.
