Threads magazine - 181 - Oct./Nov. 2015 Issue

This was originally featured in the Notions department of Threads #181 (October/November 2015).

For an affordable sewing machine with embroidery capabilities, consider the Pfaff creative 1.5, designed as a sewer’s first embroidery machine.
It is ideal for those who want the ability to move easily from sewing to embroidery and back again, and it offers 101 embroidery designs and 150 stitch options. The machine’s embroidery area is a generous 240 mm by 150 mm, so users can embroider large designs in one hooping with the Master Hoop attachment. The creative 1.5’s high embroidery speed is the fastest in its price range, according to the maker. Other features included are automatic thread cutting, Pfaff’s Integrated Dual Feed system, and Embroidery Intro PC software.
