The Pfaff Quilt Expression Sewing Machine

Experience the timeless beauty of the PFAFF® quilt expression. It will make you want to begin sewing. An exciting world of colorful fabrics, inspring ideas, and unlimited possibilites is awaiting you. There is more to discover than you can imagine. Turn the machine on and realize the potential of the highest level of precision. 

LED lights illuminate the entire work area, with no shadows. Use the Direct Select Buttons to easily choose the stitch of your choice. The large Illuminated Graphic Display shows you the selected stitch at the recommended setting, including all important information. Each setting can be changed, in small steps, and the new setting can be permanently saved in one of the expressionTM memories for later use.

Start or stop the machine without the foot control, if you like.

The well-designed shape of the PFAFF® expressionTM line sewing machines offer unbelievable space for sewing large amounts of fabric. The presser foot is rai- sed to its highest position, as if by magic. Right away you’ll notice the amazing amount of space for thick fabrics and se- veral layers.

Immerse yourself in the fascinating selection of PFAFF® 9mm high-quality stitches and alphabets – unique embellishments, stitched perfectly. Change stitches, mir- ror them and combine them – completely new patterns will immediately appear before your eyes. Save your creations in one of the machine’s memories and stitch entire sequences in one step. Lower the feed dogs from the front of the machine, select one of the Free-motion modes, and move the fabric as you choose to create a unique stitched surface.

Select the Tapering function to gradually increase or decrease the width of the stitches, creating fantastic effects.

The exclusive Sensormatic Buttonhole foot guarantees perfectly balanced buttonholes on any fabric. Both sides of each are sewn in the same direction for precise stitch qua- lity. Each buttonhole stitched to the exact length, every time.

The extra-large stitch plate has seam mark- ings to the left and the right of the needle to guarantee the right spacing and perfect sewing results. With 37 different needle positions available for straight stitch, you can sew every stitch exactly where you want it.

The bobbin thread sensor alerts you when the bobbin thread is running low. Select needle down when you stop sewing. The needle remains in the fabric for easy pivo- ting.
