The Pfaff Select 4.2 is practical, durable, strong, and produces professional-looking results. The range of features that it provides makes it very versatile for home stitching, or any craft or repairing tasks you could put under its presser foot.

This machine contains 40 built in stitch options that include utility stitches, decorative and stretch stitches. The stitch length is customizable up to 6mm, and width up to 5.5mm. With comfortable direct selection using the soft-touch system, you can quickly browse through all the stitch options by lifting the top cover.

The speed of sewing can easily be controlled based on your needs and the fabric type, with the help of foot control, which offers an electronic speed control with switchable two-speed options. The electronics in the special foot control always give the motor full power, even when sewing slowly stitch-by-stitch. It means no matter what speed your stitching at the needle always gets full penetration through whatever thickness the material is that is under the presser foot, even at slow speeds.

Not only is the Select 4.2 a good looker it is styled to allow a good unrestricted view of the needle and presser foot while sewing in the seated position. Plus, if you are a beginner, Select 4.2 comes with a user guide that is very user-friendly and has fantastic easy-to-follow information in picture and text format. Here are some more key features.


  • 40 Built-in stitches, including a one-step buttonhole of any length
  • Removable extension table
  • Accessory storage with presser foot compartments
  • Free-motion quilting and darning capabilities
  • LED lights for a brighter working area
  • Automatic needle threader for easy threading
  • 2 Speed switchable electronic foot control
  • 7 presser feet for a variety of tasks
  • 15-Needle positions for exact topstitching
  • IDT Feed for even fabric feeding
  • Bobbin winding from the needle eye
  • Strong alloy internal frame

Feed the fabric evenly using IDT 

IDT Dual Feed SystemThe IDT feature gives a smooth and even finish to the final product. To ensure that none of the fabric slips away, the integrated dual feed feature feeds the fabric, from both the top and bottom, simultaneously; this is great for fine fabrics and when working with multiple layers. It even makes sure that, despite the speed or fabric thickness, the needle piercing remains consistent throughout.

To secure the seams it offers a reverse stitching setting, which is located in an easy-to-reach position on the front panel, and with the automatic buttonhole option, you can also stitch on buttons without turning the fabric.

For the perfect accurate seam and topstitch, it provides 15 needle locations. This machine allows you to thread the needle automatically using the nifty threader. The accessory storage can be detached to use the long free arm; this works great when working with cuffs and sleeves. For quilters, the high foot lift feature means thick multiple layers of fabrics can easily be accommodated.

As we have already mentioned the Select 4.2 can wind a bobbin through the needle eye, without needing to unthread the needle, over time it is a real timesaver when stitching larger projects.
