    I'm absolutely stoked. :) I just picked up a vintage Pfaff on ebay!!! It's almost identical to my 1222, except it's a flat bed instead of having the skinny body that lets you hem pants and sleeves.

    A little back story:

    A retired gentleman on an automotive board where I also post is looking for a used sewing machine. He's local, and since he is older and retired, I asked him to trade me for his used slacks and shirts that he no longer wears and I'd scavenge any of the useful material that was in it.

    I'd been planning to pick up another Pfaff, so this was a good excuse to get the Kenmore out of the house, help a guy, and get more for my stash in one swoop. (I hadn't touched it since I bought the machine I currently use.)

    I'd looked for another machine for several months, but wasn't finding anything in my price range. :) I'm writing this off as a cosmic/divine "atta girl" for making the trade that I did with the local guy.

    I'm a sucker for vintage sewing machines. The old Pfaff's are supposed to be very nice.

    Don't know about the vintage Pfaffs, but I certainly LOVE my Pfaff 2038. I always say that if someone broke into the house, I'd let the burgler walk away with just about anything but my Pfaff ...... they'd have to fight me for that ......ha ha.
    Is that a pic of Sedona on your avatar???? What a beautiful place to live. We visited a few years ago.

    That is Sedona. It's on the same street as the church in the mountain, I think. I live in the Phoenix metro area, and it's one of my favorite places to go during the summer for a little relief from the heat.

    I'm considering a Pfaff 1212 I saw in a consignment store, and I was wondering how you like yours. Do you need a walking foot with it; I hear the Pfaffs have a built in walking foot? I'm a little confused so would appreciate any information. Thanks!

    I have the Pfaff 1222E and it has the built in walking foot, I find invaluable.
