    Surprise from my husband

    Well, I've avidly read about all the great husbands on here that surprise their wive's with a new machine. My husband did that for me today. I go in tomorrow to check out the Pfaff 150 anniversary edition that he's made a deal on. He came in to my sewing last night to watch me quilt on my Janome DC2012 which does have it's short comings, mostly a too small of a harp for a large quilt. I just finished a queen on it and a king is in the works.

    Have any of you any experience on this machine? I just watched a couple YouTubes about it and I'm excited! Kathy

    Congratulations on your new machine! I don't have a Pfaff so I can't help.

    I have a Pfaff Quilt Expression which, after a bit of a learning curve (and helped by QB), I love. I just looked up your machine and it looks fabulous. Have fun.

    Every time I look at pfaff money has to go somewhere else. Does your husband have a brother I could do with one.
    Have a wonderful time with your new machine. Quilting quilting quilting.

    Well, having a sick puppy with salmon poisoning doesn't help the sleep aspect but it is now Saturday morning and I just have to put in two hours at the Post Office then it's off the Eugene!

    I hope the learning curve isn't too bad. I'm in the middle of FM a lap quilt for my mom who is 89 so I don't know how much time I have. Lol! I'm trading in the Janome so I won't have a machine I'm used to.

    Thanks for all your comments---Kathy

    I have 2 Pfaffs, the newest is the 1475CD, but it is old now. They just won't wear out. And I love the threading --always works perfectly...and the IDT is wonderful. Your built in walking foot!!! I sure hope this new model has that feature. Congrats--you're gonna love it.

    Always exciting to get a new machine. (I get excited about our vintage ones). Practice on some scraps and I'm sure your fmq will be as good as ever.

    How exciting! My Pfaffs are my favorite machines (better not let my Brother and old Singers hear me say that). The Quilt Expression 4.0 is my newest and most favorite, which looks similar to your new one. Hope you enjoy yours as much!!!

    Aren't these husbands just something? Mine got me a Sweet Sixteen for Christmas. I'm just about ready to give it a try for the first time. Enjoy your new machine as I know I will mine.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    How exciting for you!! What is the harp space( not sure if that's the right term), of your new Pfaff?
