I have a Pfaff Creative 7550 that I purchased in the late 90's. I seem to have alot of problem with it pulling fabric down into the feed dogs as I start while piecing or joining blocks. This is not a new problem as my machine has always tended to do this and when I only worked on 1 or 2 projects a year I just dealt with it but now that I am trying to complete more projects it has become very bothersome. Now here are my questions;
1. Have others with this machine or similiar experienced this? (or does my machine need to go the the Pfaff doctor?)
2. I know there is a single hole plate available, has anyone purchased it and did it solve the problem? (I don't mind spending the money to solve the problem but if nothing changes I would rather buy fabric.)
3. While piecing do Pfaff owners have the IDT engaged or disengaged?
Sorry that this is so long, but I really like my machine and if I could get a solution for this little issue I like we can be happy together for years to come.
