    Overall rating

    This is my first Pfaff machine and I am really delighted with it, its sleek and beautiful and sews and embroiders like a dream. It has so many features on it, more than some other makers more expensive machines. It is solidly built and sounds so smooth when in use, the IDT system is a real must have for all sorts of jobs, but especially if your a quilter. This machine was fantastic value, especially with it coming with the large embroidery unit at no extra charge. Thank you for your fast and great value service. (Posted on 3/3/2012)
