Here are some of the key features from the PFAFF announcement:

10.1″ Tablet-Like Display

Swipe, zoom, pinch and personalize on the brand’s largest, most customizable and intuitive 10.1” full color tablet-like display. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) gives sewers the freedom to take their creativity to the next level.

Big & Bright Workspace

View your entire work space, over the widest area possible (12.2” from needle to arm and 5.5” of height), regardless of project size. Plus, innovative lighting is positioned at the most beneficial points for viewing angles to accommodate any project.

Comprehensive Connectivity with WiFi and mySewnet™

Get alerts on your smartphone from your PFAFF creative icon sewing and embroidery machine via WiFi. Connectivity means machine updates, plus real-time alerts and status updates on your projects when you’re on the go. Also included is mySewnet™ cloud storage, PFAFF SewNotice™ alerts and auto software notifications, and PFAFF ImageStitch™ App.

Power and Stability

Forceful needle pressure (150 nwt), which produces perfect results even when handling difficult fabrics. The machine’s revamped design also reduces vibrations, giving you the stability you need to deliver the most precise results.

Enhanced IDT™ Technology

Now enhanced to be even better, the PFAFF Original IDT™ Feed Technology System continues to improve feeding on all types of fabrics for precise stitching and perfect seams every time. 

Enhanced ActivStitch™ Technology

Create precise, gorgeous embroidery even when using challenging novelty or luxury threads like metallics. Sensors measure the fabric thickness to regulate the amount of thread needed to achieve a perfect balance between the needle and bobbin threads. Results are exquisite on both sides of the fabric.

More than 800 Embroidery Designs and Techniques

Customize projects with new embroidery techniques and built-in embroidery designs; and specialty stitches such as the Radiant, Triple Ribbon, Floating, Lace, and Off-The-Edge techniques.

Price? How long till delivery

I got mine on sale for 13,000 and brought it home that day. I don’t know how long it would take to get shipped. I had the Brother Dream machine…the ONLY thing I wish the ICON had was the Disney stock embroidery….but TRUST….the ICON is SOOOoooooo much better. The power ALONE…and the WiFi….THOSE are selling points but, it has so much more. SO worth the money I spent. I have all the accessories and software….EVERYTHING…feet, hoops, specialty threads, every type of stabilizer, rulers, cutting tables, steam irons, etc…. and it is well worth a years income!!!!! <3

How do you sell so much? I can’t manage to sell much on Etsy. And, does Pfaff object to selling their designs?

NIKI August 7, 2017 - 5:12 pm

I can’t find the overall machine size or the weight. I need it to fit into a current cabinet.

Thanks so much

Hi Niki, thank you for your inquiry. What I do know about this very new machine is more about the measurements in the work space than the over all dimensions. But I was able to get confirmation that it weighs 33lbs.
Large work space area with width 310mm (12.20in) and height 140mm (5.51in);
Large embroidery area 360mm (14.11in) x 260mm (10.24in) Regular size, and 360mm (14.11in) x 350mm (13.78in) and turnable Grand Dream Hoop
