Hi all. I am a new memeber, my name is Sigrun and live in Iceland (Europe). I have been a subscriber since issue #97 and loved every page. I am textile artist and work mainly in silk. I dye and manipulate silk. Please forgive me if my english is not correct and please correct me!
I am not a dress maker or make hardly any clothes. However I just finnished making seventh century outfit for a customer that came to me as a last resort! I dyed all the fabric (silk jaquard, silk velvet and silk satin) that I used and hand sew it all.
I would like to know if any one has a Pfaff 2170. I can not purchase it here in Iceland but Iwill be in Virginia in Oct. and would like to purchase it there. I have to import all my fabric anyway so bringing in the sewing machine should not be difficult. But I do not know much about it execept it should make excelent embroidery and it is very expensive. Does any one have the experience of working with it?
