My Pfaff…

Standard

I want to really love her, yet I find my self very angry when I set down to sew. There is always something that is not right and I have to fiddle with. It all seems bobbin issues. I don’t know why but that is what my gut is telling me.

It makes a brief grinding sound after I power it on and when I start taking the first few stitches, then nothing until then I turn it off and back on. Then I really don’t dig the drop in bobbin, I have always used a bobbin case.

Yesterday I kept getting a motor locked issues wait until this goes away to sew type thing, But It never would pick up and sew. I think Ok I will take it back to my Pfaff Dealer and let her look, but 1st I run it by mom.. yeah mom who knows everything about machines in my eyes. Of course it sews … so I did not take it in but drove out and the lady keeps telling me I am threading it wrong. That I need to make sure my presser food is up.. Yea lady I know this I DO know a little about machines, and they are NOT like my Embroidery machine. I am no closer to getting to why its being funky

I have falling back in love with my Singer Featherweight in the mean time other then it wanting to unthread, its doing everything I need. Since I have been on a quilting kick.

I have two machines right now a Pfaff Ambition 1.5 I have played with her for a bit but nothing to say how much performance, I learned on a Pfaff 1222E and that is what I wanted yet they are going for much more then I wanted to spend on a 30 year old machine.

The other is my Singer Featherweight, she is a dream to sew on I adore the vintage look of her and knowing that with only one stitch I am not having to remember any settings the next time I have to set down.

I also have 7 embroidery heads. A 6 head and a single head, I will tell anyone who asks I am by far more at ease with my massive 6 head machine vs anything.

My Embroidery is housed in a 40×60 shop that I told my dad years ago I was going to take over. Pre sewing or embroidery even!  I have a few random sewing machines housed there but I don’t use them or have photos to show right now. The singer pretty much lives in my house because its so small and I live in a oh so small house with kids, pets and a big man child. Image

Buying bobbins like this has spoiled me! I hate winding bobbins, I love just to pop in a new one.

If I could have any machine today I would love to have a Long Arm Machine, I don’t see it this year though unless I sell of something.

When the Girl goes off to Collage in a few years… 3… yeah her room is MINE 😛 poor boys will still have to share, I really do want my own space IN my house, there is nothing that puts a damper on anything that you leave the house at 1 am to drive a mile to sew!
