I'm thinking about buying myself a new sewing machine (Ive saved some mony because I stopped smoking earlier this year!) Ive settled on a Pfaff machine but can't decide which one! There are 2 which I like ....the Select 2 and the Smart 200c.....has anyone got either of them? and whats your opinion? It would be great if I could get some advice! Thanks

Karen

Karen,

I don't have either of these two machines, but I do own a Pfaff Machine and I love it. It is a simple machine, like I am a simple girl, and I would not trade it for any other machine that is being sold. I just love mine. I highly recommend Pfaff brand.

Karen,

I also own a Phaff sewing machine and I'm very pleased with it. Mine is the Tiptronic 2040. It's 7 years old and has never given me any problems, aside from seeming to be a little fussy about small things...but my previous machine was my mother's 1949 Necchi, which is built like a tank and, believe it or not, still runs like new...the only reason I bought a new machine was that the Necchi didn't have any of the fancy stitches.

I Think you will enjoy the Phaff..they are good machines...I'm told that the Levi Strauss Jeans company uses Phaff in their factories. Good Luck!

Thanks ladies, I think youve helped me make my mind up...I'm going to put the order in as soon as get back from my Weight watchers meeting (the extra stone in weight is something I could have done without when I stopped smoking) lol!!
Years ago I worked for Marks and Spencer in one of their clothing factories, so I knew that they were reliable machines, but that was a long time ago!

Thanks again for your input....
Karen

Karen,
I don't know much about Pfaff, but I've always heard good things.
Congratulations on quitting smoking! Good luck with your new machine!

I am just here to agree with what everyone has said about Pfaff. I also have a tiptronic and absolutely love it. I use the dual feed when piecing and it makes all the difference in the world. You will enjoy your new toy, I'm sure!

They make a machine that has a 10 inch throat. I highly recommend the larger throat. Mine is not a Phaff but I love quilting with the extra room.

Karen:
My sister has a regular Pfaff and wouldn't trade it for any other machine on earth. I don't know what model she has. They are excellent machines.

I have a Pfaff Serger that is a work horse...I've had it over 20 years and it's still working like brand new. Only problem I ever had with it was the need for a new cutting blade. I don't think you can go wrong with a Pfaff. I also have a Memory Craft 8000 by New Home (Janome) which I've had for about 18 years and LOVE! For sewing classes I have an inexpensive Brother machine that is really a good machine and gives good service but it IS NOT the CADILLAC like the New Home! :lol:

Congrats on quitting smoking! What a feat that is. I'm Proud of you :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
