Pfaff Ambition 2.0 Instead of 1.5?

Well there's more to the new Pfaff saga. For those that haven't been following along I purchased a new Pfaff Ambition 1.5 just over a week ago. I got it home and it doesn't work. The dealer was getting another new one in to ship to me (he's 2 hours away) and ship the original one back at his expense. All good, right?

Well. He was expecting to get the replacement one in today but when his shipment arrived it was not there and marked as back ordered. When he called to find out what is going on he was told that it is discontinued because it is being replaced by the 2.0 - bigger motor, more stitches, and of course more money - $400 more. So he can get me the 1.5 from a store in the U.S. that will take two weeks to arrive. Or if I am willing to wait he can give me the 2.0 at no additional cost, and it will be here in 2-3 weeks.

Needless to say I went with the 2.0 (more power - wheeee!) but I'm not finding anything online about a 2.0. This makes me wonder if the 2-3 weeks is going to turn into 2-3 months. I am really happy that the dealer is giving me this option, I'm just wondering if I am ever going to get a new machine (which is already paid for). At least I still have my old White to tide me over in the meantime.

Wait for the 2.0!!!

Get your patterns cut out, or your squares for quilting or whatever...buy fabrics and threads...online window shop for new-sewing-machine prezzies...

The 2.0 has more features, and for 0 extra cost?! Yeah, bingo!

Oops, got so excited didn't see you already decided to wait, lol!

I am assuming he meant the Expression 2.0, but could be a new Ambition 2.0 coming out...

Anyhoo, shop for prezzies, that'll make the time fly by.

That's pretty much what I was thinking Lynn. I'm saving my knit stash for the new machine but I've got a sewing machine cover for Sergio to make, and a few more flannel jammie pants I can work on. And LOTS of sewing related reading to do. I'm trying very hard to be patient lol.

I understood it as a new Ambition model, but maybe it is the Expression. Although that wouldn't explain the wait time.

I've had long waits for the last 3 machines. Panzy PCP and Georgia B560 were both 3 months, and Kee the B750 was 4 months. Each wait drove me nuts, lol!

Hopefully yours will arrive within the 2-3 week mark. Exciting!!!

Hi,I didn't know there is a new Pfaff ambition 2.0 out to replace the ambition 1.5.I can't find anything online and my Pfaff dealer didn't mention a new model either.As far as I know,there were only three Pfaff ambition models.I wonder if the Pfaff ambition 2.0 sewing machine your dealer will give you instead of the Pfaff ambition 1.5 is called something else ?

Maybe a Pfaff expression 2.0 sewing machine ? The Pfaff expression 2.0 has only 104 built in 9mm stitches and has been around for some time.The Pfaff ambition 1.5 has 195 built in 7mm stitches.

Maybe he will give you Pfaff creative 2.0 sewing and embroidery machine instead ? That would be very nice ! Here is the Pfaff creative 2.0 link. Or a Pfaff expression 3.2 sewing machine ? Here is a link.

I just checked the sewing machine reviews here and the Expression 2.0 is a $3,000 machine, so I doubt that is what I am getting. Also, I asked if it has the thread snips and he said no, whereas the Expression 2.0 does.

The more I think about our conversation he said that the 1.5 is being replaced by a new Ambition model. I asked if it had a number and he said yes, 2.0. Perhaps the manufacturer doesn't release any information about a new model until the dealers have them so that people don't stop buying the current model in anticipation of the new model?

I don't think the Expression 2 had the thread snips. The Expression 4 did have it.
I would personally prefer an Ambition 1.5 rather than an Expression 2. I didn't like the way the feed dogs worked on the Expressions.
This is only my opinion though.

I was a quilt/fiber arts show in Sanford today and asked the Pfaff dealer about the Ambition 2......she said it is coming in March and replacing the Ambition 1.5........she had the 1.5 on sale because of that.......Just thought I would share
