Pfaff releases new machine for sewers on the go
Pfaff has released a new sewing machine with the sewer on the go in mind.
The lightweight Passport 3.0 is an update of the Passport 2.0, new features include 30 additional decorative stitches for a total of 100, and a thread cutter that cuts the needle and bobbin thread with the press of a button.
“That is a huge convenience feature that we know a lot of sewers appreciate,” said Kim Nowak, education manager at SVP Worldwide, the makers of Pfaff sewing machines. “It is a feature a lot of our consumers felt like they were missing on the 2.0, so we had the opportunity to freshen up this machine and adding that feature is really in response to consumer demand.”
Other advanced features included on the Passport 3.0 are the Original IDT™ System, which allows fabric to be fed evenly from the top and bottom without a walking foot, an assortment of presser feet and a hard cover that fits over the machine for easy storage and transport.
“It does make it very easy to transport it,” Nowak said. “If you are taking a road trip during the summer and you want to have your machine with you, you can easily pack it away and take it with.”
Priced at $799, Nowak said the Passport 3.0 is designed to be a secondary machine for sewers with large, heavy machines who are looking for something lighter that still has advanced features to take with them to classes, sewing events or trips. But the Passport 3.0 also is a good option for beginners who aren’t ready to invest in a larger, ore expensive machine, or don’t have a dedicated sewing space.
“These Pfaff machines are the lightest weight, just around 14 pounds,” Nowak said. “The small compact design with a hard cover that fits snugly over a machine, You can even place it on a bookshelf in your living space and it still looks sophisticated.”
