I am a beginner to sewing and searching for a machine to fit my needs. I am willing to spend the extra money on a nicer machine with more options than I need, but do not want to get in over my head either! My budget is around $900 and under.
So far, I have seen and liked the Viking 350 and newer 415.
I do enjoy the computerized models over the others.
I recently came across a deal I think sounds to good to be true and was hoping you could shed some light for me. The machine is a PFAFF 1475 CD and is slightly used (a trade in) It comes with all the gadgets and still has all the original books, and of course, the PFAFF warranty. Free lifetime sewing lessons are also included. The machine retails for $2999 and is being sold for $899. Is this a steal?
How comparable are PFAFF’s to Vikings?
Any advise or tips you can offer would be so very much appreciated!
Thank you all for your time!
