Pfaff Tiptronic 6270

by Esther
(Hayden, Alabama)

A workhorse! Of course I'd like a bigger throat, but other than that, I'll keep this one a long, long time.

From the Editor: I love it when I hear that someone is so happy with their sewing machine. I love mine, too, and can't imagine quilting on a machine I didn't like.

Do you use the straight stitch, stitch in the ditch specialty foot? I wish my machine had the built in walking foot capability (IDT) like Pfaff does. A couple of my quilting friends have Pfaffs and love it not just for quilting, but for piecing, too!

In fact, one of my girlfriends traded in her old Pfaff (that she loved) when she got a newer model with embroidery function. Never used the embroidery to the best of my knowledge, but eventually bought another of the same model as she had traded in...because she missed the old machine so much.

Thanks for sharing!

Love my Tiptonic!
by: Anonymous

I have had it for 20 years I think. Made hundreds of items and had zero issues.

I am thinking of getting another machine specifically for quilting and will try and go Pfaff again...thinking the QE 4.2 will be a nice addition!

Excellent machine
by: Grace A.

I have had my 6270 Pfaff since it first came out! LOVE,LOVE this machine! It is so well built and a real work horse! I have quilted so many projects on it!I had my motherboard replaced 18 months ago and so glad I was able to have it repaired!

I was not impressed with the newer Pfaff sewing machines on the market and the prices!!

I will keep my 6270 until it dies!!!!!

Best purchase ever !!
by: Barbara

I purchased my Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 in 1999 for $2,400 (NZ dollars)the best machine I ever bought.

Between us my Hubby and I have the use of SIX different machines, him for sail making and me for quilting. Pfaff every time - love the Walking Foot.
I quilt most days (am retired)and always clean/oil the throat plate/feed dogs area at least once a week. Easy fun machine to use and portable enough to take to monthly quilt meetings.

My Pfaff Triptonic 6270
by: Carole

It was interesting to hear others call it a "Workhorse", thought it was just me. I also have the Babylock Ellego nice for embroidery but would never give up the "Workhorse".

Can't figure out why all machines don't have the built in walking foot???

I would really like a stitch regulator for this machine. Don't want to trade it in for another
and pay an arm and leg for it or my FIRST BORN.
