Pfaff 2140 = Heaven
I never knew what I was missing out on. Until I got a new sewing machine. I've only ever had a basic sewing machine. You know, the kind that you can buy at Costco, Walmart, Joannes, etc. I've read and heard from other sewers that there is nothing quite like a heavy duty machine what will continue to sew until you sew no more. They are sooo right. After months of looking around for the right machine for me, we finally came home with one. We ended up at our local Sewing & Vac store. I knew I wanted two things: Auto Tension (the bread and butter of all things! and a longer arm) After being shown every top of the line sewing machine in the store, my hubby noticed a previously used Pfaff sitting high up on a shelf. Not only was it in our price range, but it does embroidery as well!! She pulled it down off the shelf (I think she was still hoping that we would go for the $4000.00 machines that she was trying to sell us) and we plugged it it. It has auto tension and a medium length arm. The arm length isn't as long as I was hopping, but this was the only machine with auto tension that was under $2000.00. After playing with the machine for over an hour she packaged it all up and we went home.
