    I have one and absolutely love it. It has a lot of features for the money, sews straight and true, and best of all has IDT. No problems or issues with it.

    Can't recall what it stands for. It's a built-in walking foot that you can engage or disengage at your choice. It helps transport all layers of a project at the same speed/time. Makes a big difference in quilting and in matching patterns between layers of fabric (plaids, stripes, etc). It is really the only thing I miss on my non-Pfaff machine.

    I believe it is Integrated Dual Technology. In other words bot the presser foot and feed dogs move the material together. It is easily disengaged if you want it off. I usually have my 'on.'

    I wouldn't be sewing but for the IDT and the 1/4" flange guide foot ... or at least a sem guide.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    And once you get use to the Pfaff with the IDT, you won't want to sew without it.
