Drum roll please……. here is my new sewing machine.This morning I went early to Barneveld to Huissteden a sewing machine shop there. The service was fantastic. If you need a new machine or a second-hand sewing machine, it is definitely worth your visit. I got to practice before deciding to buy my new sewing machine. Don’t you love her? It is naturally a she , it just can’t be a him. Will have to think of a name for this baby. Anyway, I got a terrific price for my Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118, which enabled me to purchase the Pfaff Select 3.0 for a really good price. I think I got a real good deal. I’m so happy!! So if you happen to be in the neighbourhood, than you need to go here

It looks pretty much like the one Mirjam has and it definitely feels the same. The high presser foot clearance makes it easy to place several layers under the presser foot. The fabric feeds simultaneously from both the top and bottom so absolutely nothing can slip (this was the main reason for the purchase). The Pfaff IDT is a fantastic invention. It’s wonderful piecing quilt blocks / fabric together. The lines / pattern even match exactly!!
I phoned Mirjam to tell her I got ‘her’. She was pretty quick in offering to give my flying geese blocks back so that I can sew them together myself! She was pretty adamant. I guess she needs all the time she has to get her house in order (lol). Yesterday, she mentioned that it was a mess.
There remains one question I need to ask you, what shall I name her? Love to hear your suggestions.
I’m so content with this sewing machine that I might even sew my log-cabin on the Pfaff. Who would have thought!!! I think I might even like doing patchwork on the sewing machine.
