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.
