OK - my baby.... going to sell her because I *think* I"m ordering a new Pfaff. This machine is a beauty and I got her from sweet little sewing lady here locally. I don't think anything could have been broken on this machine... all cared for, tuned up and barely used. It is a beauty of a machine!!
Here is the question - I can't get it to backstitch? HOld down the reverse and nothing. I don't know why? I was just curious if there was a function, default, quirk that I just didn't know about to check? When I try and just hand wind it backwards, it just feels very tight? So I'm trying to figure it out since I have absolutely NO problem with it otherwise... embroidery, stitching, maxi stitches, buttonholes, etc. All perfect.
