    Does Anyone Have a Pfaff sewing machine?

    I've been looking to upgrade my traditional sewing machine and had a Pfaff about 15 years ago. Loved it and then am wondering if anyone has one of the newer models and how they like it now.

    I don't have a Pfaff sewing machine but my friend has had two - one from years ago (1980's) that she still uses sometimes and a newer Creative Sensation 4.0. She loves both of them.

    I have a Pfaff 7550 and a Creative Sensation Pro. Love them both!! I have a fantastic dealer who keeps me up to date on the newest things that Pfaff has to offer. I love my Pfaff!

    I have a Pfaff Expression 2.0. It is 7 years old. I guess that isn't one of the newer models, but I love it. Can't go wrong with Pfaff.

    I have a Pfaff C.V. 5.0 upgraded to a 5.5!
    I love this machine.
    I use it mostly for piecing but love the embroidery.
    I thought it was dying this week with the mystery quilt but after updating, it seems to be working well.
    I am looking for a replacement, as in another Pfaff on Offer Up and Craigs list.
    The Creative Sensation seems to be a great machine as well.
    Hope this helps.

    I have one of the 7500 series, and I love it! It's not new, but a real work horse!

    I have a 2 yr old Pfaff 4.2 Quilt Expression which I love love love. It has a built in walking foot call an IDT system. Talk to your dealer or go on line to Pfaff.com.

    I have an older Pfaff Quilt Expression and I do like the IDT on it, also it has been a good all around machine and I havent had any trouble with it in 15 years. I also have several other machines, Bernina, Janome and some vintage Singers.

    I have one of their more basic machines - the Ambition Essential. I love it for piecing. I could never get a consistent 1/4 inch seam with my much more expensive Janome. I have no problem with the Pfaff. I just finished making 140 9-patch units. With the IDT system, very seam nested perfectly.

    I own three... the first one I bought in 1998 and it remains a reliable work horse to this day (Creative 1475).
    Second, Quilt Expression 4.2 (wanted an upgrade and I love it)
    Third, Passport 3.0 (small, lightweight & used for classes/workshops).
    I just can't seem to part with any of them. I'm a loyal Pfaff owner. You can't go wrong. Good luck with your purchase.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    I have a Pfaff 7570 which I love. Bought it about 1995 and have never had a problem with it. Then bought a Bernina Artista 180, and a Baby Lock Elegante, which I've had problems with. But a few months ago bought another Pfaff Performance 5.0, which I love. I think Pfaff machines are the best!

    Six months ago I purchased a Pfaff 4.2 Quilt Expression. I really like it. I have a very old Pfaff (1970's) and always loved the smoothness and quietness. The new one makes more noise (only disappointment). I also have a Babylock Esante and Melody. Also like both of these but would definitely choose Pfaff over Babylock.

    We currently have 3 Pfaffs: a new 2038 was our first purchase, a used 1475CD came next, then we bought a Grandquilter 1200 with a frame, which we have since sold, and lastly, we bought a new Creative 3.0. All have been excellent machines and we would purchase them again in the same circumstance and budget. You can't beat the IDT for accuracy and the machines just work. We are strictly quilters. No garments, embroidery, etc., though my wife does want to start using the embroidery module on her Creative.

    Edited to add: when my wife wanted to buy the Creative, I had my doubts about it because all the other machines were purchased when Pfaff was German owned and European manufactured. She had her heart set on this machine, though, so we did buy it, even though it was made in China. It has not seen heavy use, but has performed as well as our other machines since we took it out of the box.
