The perfect choice for quilters.

The sewing area to the right of the needle is supersized for sewing large amounts of fabric or batting. Optimized feeding provides more control when sewing through thick layers or seaming small pieces. Sew your seam and the PFAFF® sewing machine will remember the seam length to repeat over and over, thanks to the Patchwork Program.
Everything you do can be seen. The intuitive PFAFF® creative™ Colour Touch Screen shows stitches in actual size. Customize and combine them directly
on the screen. Select the desired function with the ergonomic stylus. The
user-friendly interface guides you confidently through all processes. Pleasant
colours make everything clear, right from the beginning. Save individual stitch
settings or letters in one of the 30 memories and sew them in one step.
This and a lot more is all waiting for you.
