|What mamahmendez likes about this machine|
I LOVE THIS MACHINE! It is a non-computerized machine with the basic, utilitarian stitches. The motor sounds strong, quiet and purrs evenly. This machine has the best stitch quality I have seen. The satin stitch is beautiful; the straight stitch and zigzag are perfect everytime. The tension is easy to adjust and seems more accurate then my Brother PC-420 PRW machine I also use (there is a rating for that machine too.)
This machine sews at two speeds, fast and slow. The fast is perfect for piecing and free motion quilting. The slow is pretty slow for my needs but good for intricate work. I do prefer the metal bobbins to the plastic ones, I think they work better for this model.
Even thought this machine is older (mine was originally purchased in 1995) the accessories are readily available. The motor sounds like a Mac truck as opposed to my Brother which is more like a Honda Civic. That being said I still use my Brother for decorative stitches, some specialty feet I don't want to repurchase and it's the machine my 6 year old uses. I would not recomment the Pfaff 6091 for children, but it would be good for new sewers or sewers that want a good, basic machine without investing a lot of money.
I am so pleased with this machine. It doesn't has a ton of features but the ones it has it does REALLY WELL. I would recommend this machine to anyone as long as it came from an owner that took care of it.
What mamahmendez does not like about this machine
There isn't a lot I don't like and nothing I can't live with.
The light isn't very bright. I can still see what I am doing and the fabric just fine but for intricate work I use an additional OTT table light.
The throat space isn't HUGE. It is similar to others though.
I had to get used to using the hand wheel again... Took about 5 minutes, no biggie.
I think that is it.
