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.

Our Help Center features more than 50 animated or illustrated interactive on- screen, step-by-step guides for reference and efficiency in support of countless projects. Our screen interface features tablet-like ability to swipe, pinch, and zoom.
