I AM STUCK TO FIND WHICH PRESSER FOOT I NEED FOR MY OLD PFAFF?

Aug 15, 2019 08:44:22 AM Published in Questions we're asked about Pfaff products 604 Views.

Pfaff machines need to use the correct type of presser foot, not that it is complex or expensive, it just needs to be the correct type. For instance, most Pfaff machines use the regular Pfaff branded feet which can be found here. On the other hand, there are some older Pfaff machines like the 1221, 1222 that have a very high shank and need special feet which are no longer made, however we are in the process of trying to obtain a special shank which will allow fitting the regular Pfaff feet to this older range of machines.

What about shank lengths?

Most modern machines have a low short shank length - this is approximately 12mm (1/2inch) from the thumb screw down to the needle plate.

Some older machines and/or selected new models have a long shank length - this is approximately 18mm (3/4inch) from the thumb screw down to the needle plate.

We carry a huge range of Pfaff sewing machine presser feet, you can find the correct foot for your machine by using our Pfaff model number online search tool in our sewing machine parts section.

Remember that substituting a specialist screw-on foot in place of a Pfaff clip-on one is often possible. For an overview of various Pfaff feet, please visit this sewing feet video page.
