Some beginners fear computerised machines but really they shouldn't, computer take out all of the frustration and complication and do it all for you.
One touch of a soft press button and your stitch is selected with the perfect optimal stitch length, width and needle position set.
The Smarter 260 has extra features which machine sewing easier such as:
The "i" information button - when pressed it will tell you the best foot to fit to your machine for the selected stitch.
Adjustable Speed - control the speed you want the machine to run at, great for building confidence and gaining ultimate control.
Start/Stop Button - A great tool when sewing very long seams and free motion at a constant speed.
Needle Up/Down button - ensures that when you stop sewing your needle will stop in the fabric or out of the fabric, excellent for those tight corners.
Presser foot detector - If you forget to lower your presser foot this machine will keep you right with an audible alarm and won't let you sew by accident.
Initial set up of this machine is easy peasy lemon squeezy. The instruction manual is very clear with lots of illustrations and straight forward terms that everyone can understand. Treading up to smooth stitch selection and presser foot selection. Everything is made easy by the Smarter 260C sewing machine. It doesn't stop there, you can let your creative juices flow with this machine especially when it comes to free motion, if your new to this concept... it's great and this machine can teach you control. By dropping the feed integrally and restricting the speed to what you like simply press the start/stop and free motion until your hearts content let the machine regulate the speed you won't have to worry about it.
Nothing is compromised, you're right in thinking this machine looks quirky and cute but there is a dark side as well. Inside the machine is engineered to perfection and is fitted with a very strong 70watt motor, this makes sewing even the tougher fabrics a breeze.

WalesI have not used the machine yet...its still in box...sewing room is being set up and its going to be at least two weeks before its all clear, tabled and set up to go... What I can say is how helpful James was in customer support... Also delivery was faster than lightning.
LEICESTERWhat a fantastic machine...I have a Brother machine at the moment,but am very disappointed with the versatility of it..so my husband treated me to this Pfaff, wow....i have not stopped sewing since it arrived..The service was absolutely first class ..ordered it on Monday...it was in my lounge on Wednesday...you can't beat that...i am sooooo very happy....Thank You.
AylesburyFirst computerised machine. Delivered promptly. Easy to set up and understand. Sews beautifully and I wish had bought one much sooner. Easy to lift as it is not heavy. Due to my poor eyesight the needle threader is a boon, works perfectly.
