I spent some time yesterday test-driving Pfaffs. After cruising around with a select 4 and a expression 2, I have to say that I am impressed.
Now Im a Bernina aficionado and have sewn happily with my machine for ten years. We have a relationship. I dont make new friends easily and a new partner seemed an impossible accomplishment. Bernina has let me down a bit lately, though, as all service must be through a dealer and, if your dealer is problematic, Bernina wont help and wont intervene and wont find another dealer for you near you. In fact, Bernina wont even communicate with you.
Though the Pfaff select 3 wasnt quite love at first sight, (because Im not that kind of girl) it is clearly speaking to me. It has the IDT (dual feed) system, which is rather nice and does indeed keep fabrics moving at an even rate. The most important features for me, though, were how powerful the machine felt, the smoothness of the stitch, the speed possible for free-motion quilting without snags or problems and the sensitivity of the pressure foot; I need the machine to stop and start instantly and to stitch half-stitches in response to my control.
The other qualities that have become intrinsic to my work include the availability of some sort of extension table and additional free motion feet.
The select2 did all of that easily and powerfully. It free-motioned extraordinarily well, felt comfortable and easy-to-use and gave the air of intense practicality and competence that I need to feel my machine has. The foot pedal was amazingly sensitive and someone who has a feel for sewing can control the needle incredibly precisely. (Posted on 2/28/09)
