    Anyone have a Pfaff 1222 E in an original case?

    My friend has given me her Pfaff 1222 E on long term loan with the option to buy it sometime before she dies (she always says she is dying. She isn't. ) She gave me the machine and the case and 2 boxes and 2 bags of the attachments and assorted parts for the machine. She said she didn't want the machine to get scratched up by all the stuff in the case, so she kept it all separate.She does this to every machine she gets. I told her if she does decide to die her DH was going to call BFI to bring a dumpster because nobody would be able to figure out what part went with what machine. I had to make 2 trips to her house because I was missing accessories for the Pfaff - even bobbins!.

    I'm of the opposite opinion, in that everything is going to get lost if it isn't all kept together. I have everything back in the case except the slide on bed extension. I don't know how it goes in the case. If someone could help me I would really appreciate it.

    I'd be curious to know this too...I've got this machine and I didn't think the extension bed fits in the case.

    No, the slide - on extension does not fit in the case. I lost mine during a move - poof! gone after all these years. Take good care of it, they are no longer available. I love my 1222E - I keep my accessories in a zip lock bag, in the sewing cabinet drawer - my family would have the same problem not knowing what to do with all the sewing stuff.

    Well, that is just stupid manufacturing and design.

    I can get past it only because this machine is so freaking sweet! I love the built in walking foot. It is making the quilting for the quilt from Hades almost bearable. Most of it is straight line or STID and it just waltzes over it. Now I really want a Juki industrial with a walking foot!

    I don't know how it goes in the case, either, but will be finding out--probably try beside it in the case--under the machine? Moving soon. Anyway, I never worry about that as mine stays out to use all the time for basting to frame leaders and binding the 100 quilts for American Hero Quilts in 12 months!! I am proud!

    What age is this model machine? I am working out of town for the next couple of days, but have the absolute heaviest Pfaff made in the 60's, has original case and the extension table, bought it to sell, but have not advertised it and it also has lots of attachments and the original manual (which the front cover has turned brown from age). It sews very well, but I am amazed by the weight, made of total metal not plastic. Is this anything similiar to what you are asking about? When I returned home, if you will e-mail me, will be happy to attempt to help you with the extension table.

    No, this model Pfaff was made in the 70's.
