Good Ol' Pfaffie!

Friday, May 14, 2010
I've been waiting along time for it to come.  I had been test-driving sewing machines the whole previous week because I decided it was time to give Madison a rest.  She had been so good to me but just wasn't everything that I needed.   I went to a huge warehouse full of hundreds of used sewing machines trying to find the one.  I could have stayed there forever looking at all the different kinds of sewing machines - new or old - it wouldn't matter.  I told the guy showing them to me, "I just love it here".  After much searching and even crying -Yes, I'm THAT bad- I finally pushed the "buy it now" button.  It was done.. I had made my choice.  After many sleepless nights dreaming and torturous hours during the day I had to think about this sewing machine a UPS guy FINALLY came to my door with a package - a package so huge he had to use a dolly!  Of course the boys were excited.  Once the box was opened they screamed as they saw all the packing peanuts.  There she was - a Pfaff 1222e sewing machine.

That's right, she's about 25-years-old and still a beast!  They just don't make them like they used to.  My favorite part - a walking foot. 

Only Pfaff has these babies built in.  The walking foot gives you beautiful-even stitches and keeps both the top and bottom fabrics even.  My Pfaffie can go through layers and layers of denim and vinyl.  Pretty sweet eh?  I could live without these crazy button controls, but it beats having a computerized sewing machine.
