Largest Working Area

We’ve engineered the market’s largest workspace: an overall increase in width and height under the arm than previous models, with the most height ever under the sewing head, giving your hands plenty of room and a better view of large projects, like quilts.

Unprecedented Lighting Design

Our innovative lighting technology gives you the most even work light on the market for the brightest sewing experience. LED lighting is perfectly positioned at the most beneficial points to eliminate shadows.

ActivStitch™ Technology

Apply metallic and novelty threads to your project with expert precision using our revolutionary ActivStitch™ technology. Thread is fed perfectly through the machine for gorgeous results, all thanks to built-in sensors that actively measure and regulate your thread.

Comprehensive Connectivity with WiFi and mySewnet™

Load stitches to your machine from the mySewnet™ app— enabled with cloud storage and automatic updates via WiFi. When connected to the free PFAFF® CreatorCue™ app, step-by-step sewing instructions and tutorials from the Help Center can be viewed on demand.

Automatic Needle Threader

Our fully automatic needle threader is available for the utmost efficiency and convenience. The thread paths with telescopic thread guides allow you to use all of your favorite threads, even if they are on larger spools.

Enhanced Original IDT™

Integrated Dual Feed technology precisely feeds all types of fabric from the top and bottom for perfect stitching every time. Includes its own power source, and a built-in sensor lets you know when to activate or deactivate it.

Huge Multi-Touch Screen with a Smart Digital Interface

The 10.1in (257mm) full-color screen works like a smartphone or tablet, and is the largest, most intuitive display available from PFAFF®, specially designed to support a dedicated sewist like you.

Power, Stability, and Precision

The base design reduces vibrations, giving you the stability you require for precise results. Our needle piercing power is also nearly twice as strong as previous models, sewing through heavy fabrics with ease.

Unlimited Creative Freedom

The Stitch Creator™ feature gives you the freedom to create new 9mm stitches or edit built-in stitches for unlimited creativity.
