    Smile Pfaff Embroidery machine - gifted to me

    I was gifted a Pfaff embroidery machine - complete with discs and hoops.....and have absolutely no idea how to use it. I will contact a dealer (hopefully there is one in the area) to see if I can set up some lessons. Ever be excited and scared at the same time?

    congrats, that is a nice gift, enjoy your new machine. I do recommend classes because there is a lot involved with embroidery, I have been doing it for 6 month and still feel so new to it and unsure of things sometimes.

    You can also check with shops that sell Viking, ours had just started selling Pfaff, but they have always let any machine take classes.

    Try utube. If you can't find classes, which I'd prefer, sometimes utube has tutorials.
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Still neeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrvous about this.....thanks for the info on Viking...they may be able to help. I have granddaughters with the 18 inch dolls, I like making the outfits for them to match - and thought the embroidery would be a great little addition.

    Congrats! I'm saving up my $$'s for a quilting machine. What a nice gift! My dealer gives free machine usage classes no matter where you may have purchased or how you received your machine and whether they sell that brand or model or not. Smart - gets new clients in the door and of course when you take a class they show you all the other notions and gadgets you just have to have! And like me, you see something bigger and better and end up trading up. So definitely check with a dealer near you and see if they offer free (or low cost) machine usage classes.

    Even though it was gifted, I feel that I should offer something $$......any thoughts on this?

    This depends on the situation I think.. without knowing more details it's really hard to say. I would at the very least make something with the machine as a "thank you" for the person who gave it to you.

    I was the Best man (?) at their wedding, and when the grooms mom passed, he and his wife (best friend) asked me to come and look through the mom's 'stash', and take what I wished, which turned out to be 11 boxes of fabric and 6-7 books and he asked me if I wanted the embroidery machine.......girlfriend and I sew together, I teach her different quilting things, she is a great student!

    Hey, lucky girl you are. Have fun with it. I had no idea there was so much involved with using an embroidery machine. My SIL just bought one and is having loads of fun.
