Pfaff Quilt Expression 720 Sewing Machine
Fantastic model for quilting with IDT
Taking over from the very popular 4.2, this Pfaff Quilt Expression 720 has a host of additional features. It now boasts an easy to view illuminated graphic colour touch screen with 200+ extra stitches...a wopping 428 stitches in total. Enjoy quilting at a new level with 47 unique quilt stitches with beautiful hand-stitched character. Use the knee lifter to raise or lower the presser foot instantly leaving both hands free to manipulate large fabric pieces. It can handle quilts up-to king size in it's stride thanks to the long 250 mm sewing bed which it's well lit bright LED's.
The colour touch screen displays the exact stitch selected and each one will sew beautifully thanks to the automatic self adjusting thread tension. A new range of decorative programs are available including ribbon, floating and stacking stitches.
It even snips the thread ends automatically after sewing a line or at the touch of a button, saving the need to reach for scissors at the end of every seam. Another function to save time whilst quilt making is the automatic presser foot lifter. This can be set to lift the foot automatically at the end of every seam.
The Quilt Expression 720 has a 99 character string or stitch memory function; in fact it has two types of memory. One to save stitches, numbers or alphabet lettering in sequences, the other is a personal memory to save and recall stitches that the user has customised. For example if you were quilt making and needed to sew 16 x 2" blocks, it is possible to sew the first one, then tell the machine to repeat it over and over again. It will even tie-off at the seam end then cut the top and bottom threads. It's a never ending list of features this innovative new model has.
IDT is still the original and best option when working with more than one layer of material. It has never been replaced by anything that can work as well. For 40 years Pfaff's IDT (Integrated Dual Transportation) has helped produce some of the worlds best quilts. It feeds the fabric from the top and bottom simultaneously. This way no fabric will ever be able to slip away.
