    Can't tell from the picture but if it is a 1471 model - I have the same machine and I love it.

    I used to have a 1473 which I, too, loved, but then when I got a 7570, I gave my 1473 to a dear friend and she now loves it. She has had it for 5 or 6 years now, and does still love it. It's a good machine.

    My Pfaff Expression 2.0 turned 1 year old this month and it's the best investment I've made. After having a Singer for the last 10 years, which I loved, but the feed dogs didn't drop and the Pfaff has a lot of other nice quilting features. The Singer was more of a "sewing" machine. Good luck with your Pfaff. I'm sure you'll love it. Can't wait to see your first project.

    She is gorgeous! I love my Pfaff, there's nothing like the dual feed for piecing quilts. ENJOY!

    I also have a 1471 bought in 1986 and I still use it nearly every time I sew. It is the best machine and is a workhorse, will sew over any thick fabric, love the built in walking foot.

    I am a Pfaff fan - I have 3, a Quilt Expression 3, Coverlock Serger, and a Creative 4. I can't imagine having anything else, but then I have a fabulous dealer to work with.

    Enjoy!!

    I have had a Pfaff for almost 20 years. Love it. Yours looks almost identical to one my friend has. Enjoy!

    Congrats on your new Pfaff. I have had Pfaff machines for years and they are my favorite. Love the dual feed.

    I own one of these machines too. (along with the other 13 sewing machines in the house) This machine is a great machine and I use it the most even though I own an Ellegante.

    I inherited my Pfaff 1471 from my sister. I never sewed before. But I am addicted now. I love this sewing machine. I've gone to many quilt shows and taken classes using new machines of many different brands. But I much prefer my little work horse Pfaff 1471.

    I too am a huge Pfaff fan, I am down to just 6 from 9 Pfaffs I have owned over the years, nothing else really does it for me, they are really great machines! Hope you have many happy years with your new workhorse. Happy stitching!!

    I have one of those, I think. I bought mine new about 25 years ago. It was the best machine. I never had to have it repaired once with about 20 years of use.
