and so I visited the Pfaff dealer....


and tried out both mechanical and electronic sewing machines. I kinda
liked the expression 3.0...(yes Polly, i DID smile!) but....they are
all now made in china. And, i try very hard to not buy made in china,
if i can help it.
does anyone have a pfaff 1530 or 40 they would like to see live in
NJ???

Hi Betsey, I have a Pfaff 1540 that I love! And yes, it makes me smile, too! I hope you can find one- it's been a great machine. Pam

I looked over at ebay to see if anyone had a 1530 or a 40. Nope. Buying a sm on ebay is, of course, taking a few risks but I have done it several times with happy success. There's no dealer within 50 miles of here - the nearest is a Pfaff dealer and I'm a Bernina person so I really don't have the advantage of testing and lessons. I could not, would not (Sam I am) buy a China sm. Might buy one from a glazed-eyed guy in a raincoat out behind BigHearted Eddie's Pawn Shop but I do have a few scruples. Polly

I will just keep my eyes and ears open! Now remember, i have a lovely little viking 350...so i should not complain. plus some other nice sewing machines (a featherweight, an ellure for embroidery) but I'm just so tickled with that little pfaff i bought my DD.....
well, you all know the drill. I must confess, i have lust in my heart for a pfaff. but a NON chinese made one!

My LQS had a 2020 for sale not too long ago -- not sure if they still have it or not. I have a 2030 and a 7570 and LOVE LOVE LOVE them both. True workhorses!
Where are you? (location-wise) -- Maybe we could work out a way to get this one to you (if it is still there).

Betsey, Where in NJ are you? I can check out my sm dealer and see if they have any used Pfaff's next time I'm that way. Unless, it's near to you as well?
