    I was in my LQS today and I wondered over to where the sewing machines were. They sell pfaff machines. They were wonderful and the shop is having some wonderful sales. Who has a Phaff and what do you think of them?

    I have a pfaff and love it. I have a quilt expressions 2048, it's about 5 years old and it's awesome. I want to upgrade to the 4.0 and probably will in the next year.

    It's a German design, but was sold out to the folks who make Viking in Sweden. It's a very well known brand.

    Check out this site for reviews on the various machines (along with a ton of others).

    I may have to splurge...

    I think Martina (Madquilter) just got one? I was looking at the features of the 2058 and it does this seam length memory thing that looks cool; I was planning on getting the Janome 6600 when we've got the spare cash, but now I'm tempted by the Pfaff. Throat size is smaller than the Janome though - oh, what to do!!

    I have 2 pfaffs and find it very hard to sew on anything else that IDT foot is wonderful mine are older an 1171 and a 7550 but I use them all the time I also have a Bernina 44QE and a Babylock Espire but most of the time they sit idle while my Pfaffs stay busy

    I also have a pfaff expression and love it. The IDT is fantastic and sews perfect all the time. Cheers Jackie.

    I have a Pfaff 2054. I love that baby. I've had it probably around 5 years or so and I'm still learning about all it can do.

    I'm a Pfaff girl too - I own one which is about 35yrs old & last year I treated myself to a new one the Creative 2.0 which has an embroidery unit also.
    The IDT is a god send - personally I knew I wanted another Pfaff as my old girl had never let me down. I wouldn't choose anything other than a PFAFF :wink:

    I own a pfaff and will say it is the best one I ever had. I use more my babylock but I have owned the Pfaff 7550 since I bought it in Germany. I may have to sell it though since I don't use it at all.

    I actually have 3 Pfaffs. The new (albeit closeout model) 2058. It is listed for $3,299 and I got it for $1,200. It has the built-in-walking foot, needle up/down position, low-bobbin indicator, knee-lift, speed control change to slow option, awesome selection of fancy stitches, a mirroring option on asymmetrical stitches, and my favorite: it can be set to lift its foot (3 levels) so you can hold on to your piecing or add pieces. The needle threader works like a charm and it has a bobbin-winding option with the needle threaded. Haven't tried that one yet.

    If the price hadn't been so fabulous, I would have checked out the Janomes as well, since they supposedly have similar features with a larger throat opening. A regular machine works for me since I have the GrandQuilter with a 9" throat opening and a 1600 stitch-per-minute speed. It's being set up with the handi-quilter frame.

    My 3rd, is the Quilt and Craft 7035 and it served me well for over a decade. Not quite the feature selection as the 2058 but that's before I knew all the features I needed. Not sure yet what to do with it, since I also have a low-end Brother. Now 4 machines is a bit much for me.

    I just like the feel of the Pfaff.

    Which one is it? I can recommend to read the reviews by other quilters on the specific machine. I was actually contemplating upgrading to a higher end one, but the reviews were bad across the board. So I decided against it.

    I have 3 pfaff's. My favorite is the creative vision.To load embroidery designs all you need is a stick. Don't have to carry around a computer. I have a grand quilter on a frame which I am still getting the hang of and a regular sewing machine to work with when I am embroidering. My Pfaff dealer is down the street and very friendly so can just pop in if I have a problem. There is a learning curve with the CV but once you understand it there are very few limits.
