Not sure of the new prices, but the previous models are the 1530, 1540 series, in case you want to look on CL or Ebay. I have the 1530 and it plows through everything. What I really like is that I can engage the IDT with the zipper foot and that's a great feature for home dec sewing when inserting cording. I've heard the buttonholes aren't that great, but I've never tried it, I use my Viking for that.

Your question isnít easy to answer,it depends on the region and dealer.In the U.K. dealers list prices online,I see Pfaff quilt expression 4.2 sewing machines,regular price: £529.00 - £1,199.00.

No one I know ever paid the manufacturerís suggested retail price.Last year I read someone paid $650 for the Pfaff select 4.2.Itís a mechanical sewing machine,it has been around a while.I hope some people who own that model will chime in.

In the Uk the Pfaff Select 4.2 is a mechanical machine and has a retail price of £529 but mostly it's on sale for £489. But, as TeeGee said, people rarely seem to pay the ticket price.
In the Uk the Quilt Expression 4.2 is a computerised long arm sewing machine that retails for between £1299 to £1199. Again, I am sure deals can be done.
I have found the best deals can be had if you go to a main dealer.

Anyone in the UK near Loughbourgh/ Leicestershire might be interested to know that Quorn crafts are selling off their Classroom quilt expressions for £399, fully serviced, with a 6 month guarantee.

I think that price may be on the low side or they dropped the prices. I paid $500.00 for my 1530 which is a lower model about 9 years ago. At the time that was a good deal, my dealer was charging about $700.00. Mine was made in Europe, maybe the price dropped when moved to Asia.
