Unboxing The Pfaff Passport 2.0

I love it when the UPS man pulls up my driveway in his big brown van, comes to my door and leaves sewing machine boxes. Unboxing the Pfaff Passport 2.0 sewing machine was a lot of fun especially when I found a box designed to looked like a suitcase under the cardboard box. I love to travel and this machine with its name and suitcase box is set and ready to go. The Passport 2.0 is compact and lightweight for great portability. The perfect machine for taking to class, retreats and the cottage as well as using in your sewing room at home.

Carrying Case

A hard case makes transport easy and safe with a cut out for storage of the foot control. The handle on the sewing machine pops up through the cover and is wide and easy to grip for comfortable carrying. When the machine is not in use, use the cover to keep the dust off of it.

Accessory Box

Store all of these accessories in this great little accessory case that slides onto the free arm of the sewing machine adding to the sewing space.

Extension Table For The Pfaff Passport 2.0

Remove the accessory case and replace it with an extension table to extend your sewing space. Using the table extends the sewing space by 8″ to the left of the machine. The rounded edge on both the table and accessory box make a perfect edge for the fabric to flow over as it feeds through the machine. And the extension table even comes in its own little carrying case – bonus!

Threading Area

The winding of the bobbin and threading of the machine is all accessible at the top of the machine making these two procedures virtually effortless.

Library Of Stitches

A library of 70 stitches found on a pull out card at the side of the machine gives a multitude of options for appliqué, decorative stitching, buttonholes, utility stitches and basic sewing.

The Pfaff Passport 2.0 Control Panel

The push button controls make it easy to change stitches – just punch in the numbers on the key pad that corresponds to the stitch. For example straight stitch is 01 which is also the default stitch when the machine turns on. Stitch number 03 is a zigzag. Stitch number 26 is a blanket stitch and so on. So quick and easy to change stitches on this little Passport 2.0.

    Hi thank you for your post, it is very helpful. I have Pfaff Smarter 160s which is much heavier than yours, it´s around 9 kg with dimension of 19.8 x 14.1 x 10.7 inches. I plan to travel, I wonder if I can carry it on the plane 🙁 your reply will be highly appreciated. Thank you

    I bought a Pfaff Passport 2.0 today, unboxed it, threaded it and tried out some of the stitches. Really easy to use and the many stitches are awesome. I am going to start sewing on it tomorrow.

    I bought the Phaff Passport 2.0. It did not come with a extension table. I am looking to bye one. The Phaff dealer in my hometown claimes they can’t get one. Do you know where I purchase one or a knockoff that fits

    • Hi Abbalie – they should be able to get you one as they are available. Have you tried another Pfaff dealer? You may need to find a Pfaff dealer on line and order it from them. Good luck.

    Dear Jennifer,

    I want to say thank you so much for providing the specific measurements of the passport sewing machine. I have been searching for three days to find a site that provided the abovementioned information. You see, I have wanted to make a sewing machine cover for my best friend who has a passport. I had the measurments but misplaced them thus being the weekend I could do nothing not even ring Pfaff Australia! I even made several request on facebook with no luck.

    So I am very grateful to you and your review. I own a quilters expression 4.0 and are very happy with my machine. I actually persuaded my friend to look at the passport as she was happy with my machines stitches/stitching being a quilter and had made her some previous gifts. Now I am about to cut fabric and start sewing as I know my design. I will be happy to show you a photo of the finished item if your interested. [email protected]. Best wishes and merry christmas.

    • You are most welcome Julie. I am so glad that you were able to find the information you were looking for from my blog post. The Passport is a great little machine with it being so lightweight and portable she will be able to take it with her to class, retreats and of course your house to sew. That is of course if you live near each other. I lived in the Outback for 5 years and loved it – especially loved Adelaide and Melbourne along with the diverse countryside of Australia. Thanks again for dropping by and please do send me a picture of your project and I will post it on one of my blogs in the new year. You can email it to me at [email protected]. I look forward to seeing it. Thanks again. Jen
