Pfaff 1471

by Addie
(Marrero, Louisiana)

I love this machine, purchased it used in 1998. Never had a problem with it and have maintained it since I purchased it.

Now I am into quilting and so far it has not let me down. Even did some machine quilting which I still have to master.

It is a heavy duty machine, all the inside parts are metal, no plastic.

Love my 7550
by: Elaine W.

I bought a Pfaff 7550 in 1996. I love it.

It has a lot of embroidery which I really do not use but it has worked out great for me.

I have been sewing for over 50 years (I'm an old bugger), Now my sewing is just quilts. I love this machine for piecing and FMQ. Sometimes I wish I had something with a longer arm for the quilting but I would not get rid of this machine.

I was told by my repair man that it was only a year or so when Pfaff stopped making the machines in Germany. He said at that time he refused to sell any more of the brand because they were junk. My machine is heavy metal and worth all of the $3,000 I paid for it new.

I would suggest that anyone looking for a good machine today to look to some of the older used machines.

Pfaff 1471
by: Lori

I agree Addie. I have the same Pfaff 1471 which I purchased in 1988! It is a great machine.

My husband just bought me a new Pfaff Creative 2.0 and wanted to know if I wanted to trade my "old" machine in since I had the new one.

No way, this old machine is very dependable.

I, too, am just starting to quilt and have used the embroidery on the new machine but think that old faithful may get used for the quilting.
