5 stellar features on a NEW entry level sewing machine

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! 5 stellar features on a NEW entry level sewing machine – the PFAFF Creative 1.5! And I’m so glad you joined me on this new adventure, stay tuned for an exciting week, with an awesome quilt project to boot! But for now, let me tell you how excited I am about this new sewing machine.

If you’re in the market for a great, and I mean a great entry level sewing and embroidery machine and don’t want to compromise quality, then this is the machine for you! I couldn’t believe my eyes, and the manual that comes with the PFAFF Creative 1.5, that for an entry level machine it’s souped up with these, but not only, 5 awesome features found in the higher end models.

1. The Original PFAFF IDT System

IDT is the Integrated Dual Feed, in short the PFAFF IDT is the equivalent of a built-in walking foot. When I piece my quilt top with the IDT I never, and I mean never, use pins. I don’t need to.

2.  Large sewing area

The large sewing area to the right of the needle is perfect for all my quilting and other sewing needs. That is 8″ of space to be precise, this is a remarkable size of throat space for an entry level machine.

3.  The large throat space allows for a large embroidery area.

A 9 1/2″ X 6″ embroidery area. This large hoop is included with the machine allowing me to add embroidery details to my quilts and even more important to me, add personalized, long lasting embroidered labels to my quilts. With two fonts and 101 built-in designs there’s sure to be something to make me happy. Not to mention how easy it is to download designs and transfer them to my machine.

4. Ultra fast embroidery

While we’re talking about embroidery–I’d be remiss not to mention how fast this machine sews. I finished my label in no time at all, allowing me more time for piecing and well other important things that can get in my way of quilting such as meal preparation and laundry.

5.  Software

Let me tell you how helpful and important this introductory software is. I can use the machine without the software but I can accomplish much more with this easy to use and intuitive software. It occurs very often for me to travel, commute, wait around at hockey or dance practice, and as long as I have my laptop with me, I can design quilt labels or other quilting elements I want embroidered on my quilt, home decor or clothing items. The software is a bridge between my creativity, my laptop and the PFAFF Creative 1.5.

This machine is for you, and you and you….

I know what you’re thinking–there’s no way one machine is right for everyone and perhaps you’re right but this one comes as close as you’re going to get to meet the needs of a cross spectrum of sewers and quilters.

This is the sewing machine for you when:

  1. You’re looking to getting your first embroidery machine, on a budget.
  2. You want to learn more about sewing machine software but aren’t quite ready to jump in with both feet and buy an expensive model you might not use all features.
  3. You’re in the market for a second sewing machine for the cottage, winter place, traveling to classes.
  4. You’re an embroidery fiend and sometimes want two machines going at the same time.  (I know I’m guilty of this–I have a chair on wheels and roll between machines when I’m really in a hurry to get something done!)

The PFAFF Creative 1.5 is the machine for you! It’s a great second machine which gives you the freedom to do some embroidery or sew, it really is an all in one affordable sewing machine.

In case you haven’t figured it out, I LOVE this machine. It meets the needs of so many, it has a great introductory price, comes with a boatload of feet, designs, stitches etc.  And maybe most important to many of us–EASY to use with PFAFF quality.

Tomorrow I’ll take it out for a test drive to see just how easy this machine is to use. Can you say awesome paper manuals but if you don’t want the paper you can download them too?…Oops I’m getting ahead of myself.

I fell in love with the art of quilting in my late 40s and it opened a whole new world of creativity and friendships. Thanks to this extraordinary way of life, I met amazing women and men I've come to love and call friends. I'm a blogger, long arm quilter, machine embroiderer, and a freelance educator teaching across Canada.
