Princess Pfaff


The "Princess" arrived and Ive spent awhile getting acquainted with my new machine (I see great things for us in the future!!!). She is a Pfaff Expression 2038 and such a dream to sew on. So many great features packed into this little beauty, some of them "very new" to me, some of them just make sewing that much easier:


She has an built in walking foot (just flick the lever down and ur ready to quilt....and she quilts so lovely!!!) Free motion quilting is a dream and it has a great open darning foot, so u can see the area u r working on a lot better. Automatic needlethread, LCD screen displays when the bobbin is close to running out. There is a half speed button (great for learning stippling) , the needle up/down button and the tie off button. There r 80 inbuilt stitches (9mm) plus an alphabet and numerals and a few symbols. The applique stitch is really lovely and there is a mirror image button so no need to turn ur design around (this works great with the embrodiery stitches as well!!) The hand quilting stitch is also lovely (I can see myself using this quite a lot).

I havent sewn much, ive just played around with it, although i did sew a loggie block tonite and how i wish i had had that 1/4" foot when i started them lol!!! And what has become of poor Jan (Janome)..........well she has taken a well deserved retirement and now resides on the shelf, but she promises to make a few guest appearances when the kids come down to sew:

Hope u all have a great weekend.......guess what ill be doing??? lol

Take care

Wow!! Fanct Dancy!!! I like that you call her the Princess. I have called mine a few names I can not mention and maybe that is why she does not like me!!!

Lucky you!! I have had a Pfaff for about 10 years and I really love mine. It is a quilters edition - but I don't have some of the features you on the new machine. It sure would be nice to have some of those features - warning the bobbin thread is getting low!! Enjoy the new machine :)))

Have fun on your new toy! I love that you name them. I can't sew a stitch but I always wanted to. I tried but I always got the thread tied up somehow (sigh!) Have fun quilting!!

I'd l-o-v-e to have the tie-off AND the hand quilting stitch. They can keep all the fancy stuff, lol.
