Smarter by Pfaff
IN STORE PICKUP
The Pfaff Smarter 260c is the latest addition to the Pfaff line of ‘Smarter’ sewing machines for beginners. When I reviewed it at Cynthia’s Fine Fabrics in Tamarac, FL, I was most impressed by the quality of the stitches that it produced.
The Pfaff Smarter 260c is easy on the eyes. It has a stark white exterior with cool turquoise accents. There is an on board needle threader, presser foot adjustment dial, tension adjustment dial, easy to follow threading and bobbin winding guides.
There is also a needle plate with seam guides etched on both sides of the needle, a start/stop button and a reverse stitch control above the needle; buttons that are used to program the needle to stop up or down, set the machine to tie off the ends of seams as well as stitch length and width adjustment controls and an LCD display that shows the selected stitch number and tells you which presser foot to use.
The most prominent thing, however, is the stitch selection table that appears on front of the machine. More about this very interestingly functional feature below.
Beneath the stitch selection guide is a black switch that allows the user to adjust the speed.
The free arm and drop feed control are exposed when the accessories case/work surface is removed.
