    I have Pfaff Expression 2.0. I love it. I got it four years ago and paid $1500, which put me in shock. I was just starting to quilt and my husband bought it for me for Christmas. It has been a workhorse for me though. I just finished my 84th quilt.

    I am not sure how that helps you with a 4.2 though.

    I have the 4.2. I LOVE it. I paid $2,000 for mine. It was a lot of money, but I don't regret buying it.

    I have the Pfaff Performance 5.0, which is essentially the same machine as the 4.2, but with some additional features and some wider stitch options. I absolutely love mine!

    There are 2 pfaff 4.2. Which one are you talking about? 4.2 at about $900 or the pfaff quilt expression 4.2 at about $2400
    not exact conversions from sterling pound approximates.
    i would love the expression quilter but it is expensive.will keep watching this site.

    I love it and have had no problems. Have watched this video which gives a good overview of it?



    You might still be able to pick up a QE4.0 for less than half the cost of the 4.2 which doesn't have enough new features to warrant the extra cost.

    I have the 4.0 and Performance 5. The main difference between the 4.0 and 4.2 is the on/off switch, some extra stitches and another quilting mode. As the above poster says, if you can get a 4.0 for a reduced price, you won't be disappointed. Good luck

    I went to my local dealer to buy the 4.2 but when I got there the performance 5.0 was on sale for only a couple of hundred more. I tried them both and came home with the performance. I'm sure that I would have been happy with either they are really nice machines.

    That's a good price. At my local Pfaff dealer the 5.0 is $1500 dearer than the 4.2 and that's the sale price difference between the two. When I bought my 4.2 I couldn't see the value in paying $1500 more.

    I hope you get as much enjoyment from your new machine as I'm getting from mine.

    This is exactly what happened to me! The Pfaff Expression 4.2 was priced at $1999 and the Performance 5.0 on sale for $2299 with 48 months free financing. I tested each and really liked the 4.2 (I was a bit scared of 5.0 at first)! But the more I played with them and with the low difference in price, I sprung for the 5.0. They are BOTH great machines!

    I bought the 4.2 last summer for around $2,400. Absolutely love it and haven't regretted the purchase one bit.

    I'm thinking of buying the QE 4.2 as well. I'm so disappointed with my Brother. Any other experiences with the QE 4.2? If I can get the 4.0 (used) over here it's only a small price difference.

    Purely,
    do you mind me asking which Brother you have and why the disappointment? I'm trying to decide between Pfaff and Brother which is why I ask.
