|What mitchs'mom likes about this machine|
I found this machine on Craigslist. It was in barely used condition with all the original paperwork and manual, including the sales slip! It was originally purchased in 1994 for $850.00 plus tax. It is a mechanical machine and made in Germany. It came with 8 original feet which included the FMQ foot, and an extra quilting patchwork foot, along with all the factory accessories. It has the built in IDT walking foot, 12 stitch selection buttons which can be combined to make 29 different stitches. It also has 3 buttonhole stitch settings for making straight button holes.
It has a vertical full rotary hook and uses modern Pfaff plastic bobbins. 3 needle settings, 5.5mm stitch width, and a built in needle threader. The foot control has a switch for setting the speed of the machine. If you are new to sewing or teaching a child or inexperienced sewer this is a wonderful feature as it limits the speed of the machine considerably. When you want to go full out, pedal to the metal fast, slide the switch to the highest setting and off you go!
I have bought a couple accessories for the machine. I got a straight stitch plate for it, a stitch in the ditch foot and a 1/4 inch foot with the seam guide. I just placed an order for a 6mm open toe foot for applique and a fancy stitch foot. I may not really need the extra feet but If I do need them, I'll have them.
I love this machine! It has become my 'Go to' machine for piecing. It runs smooth and quiet and is light enough to take with me if I have to sew away from home. It has the hard plastic case with a place in the side for the cord and instruction manuals.
What mitchs'mom does not like about this machine
The only thing I don't like is the setting for free motion quilting. There is an indent in the presser foot bar that you place the presser foot lever on to keep the FMQ foot above the fabric while FMQ. It feels flimsy and could be easily disengaged while pushing a quilt through the machine bed.
