Why choose the Pfaff Select 3.2 from us?
What makes the Pfaff Select 3.2 special..! reliability, strength and precision. Easy to use soft touch button selection with 27 stitch functions. Choose from 15 different needle positions for perfect zip placement or seam widths. Every machine in the Select range has an extra slim free arm, always handy for children's cuffs and dolls clothes. It uses bright LED lights which make for no-flicker lighting of the sewing area.
For quilters the Select 3.2 has a high presser foot lifter and constant powerful needle piercing power, makes for controlled sewing. When you're ready for free-motion stitching, drop the feed dogs, put the presser foot lever into free-motion position and stipple away.
Pfaff developed Integrated Dual Feed (IDT) system is introduced at this level and beyond, ensuring fabric is fed evenly from the top and the bottom at the same time, at any stitch length and in forward and reverse, to eliminate fabric slip. A great example of this is to take about 8 to 10 strands of different coloured threads, set stitch to zigzag and with the threads placed under the foot, engage the IDT system, start sewing and guide them under the foot. The result is your own decorative cord. Just imagine using this on silky fabrics.

Not used a lot yet, but a simple and robust machine. Chose this based on advice from a number of people. In particular for the IDT.
Speedy delivery after advice from helpline helped me to choose between two models in minutes. I opted for the mechanical machine over a computerized version at the same price.
I use the machine to stitch leather bags and for millinery projects as well as making roman blinds and general dressmaking. I like that the arm removes for precision sewing, which you don't get with many other models. I also like that there's an in-built light, which again you don't get on some of the less expensive models. The only issues I've had are that the machine had a dirty thumbprint on it when I removed it from the box, but I put this down as occurring in the factory as the box was sealed. Also, the machine leaves a loop on the underside of the fabric when I've started and stopped a long row of stitches [yes, I do leave the needle in the machine] but to be fair I don't know whether this is the machine or the way I'm using it as I haven't yet spoken to SMS about this.
The machine gives you a lot more for your money than comparable machines available on the High Street and it's sturdy metal body doesn't jump around the table like it's plastic counterparts.
For the money, I prefer the functionality and robustness of the mechanical machine to the extra embroidery stitches and automatic buttonhole on the computerized version. I have given four stars rather than five because it doesn't have the convenience of a drop-in bobbin. Overall, sturdy machine, reliable brand, better than High Street counterparts for the same price.
Excellent machine has effortlessly sewn six layers of fur fabric, really robust machine which copes just as we'll with chiffon
