Hi

I live in Surrey and I learnt to sew over 50 years ago making dolly clothes. I used to make all my own clothes and then clothes for my small children and curtains and bags for home. After a long gap looking after family and elderly father I have returned to sewing (and knitting). My current project is a little bag for my toddler grandson!

I have an old Pfaff machine and my husband recently bought me a Pfaff Passport 2. The new machine has a push button function as now unfortunately I have physical difficulty using a foot pedal.

So I am learning to use a new machine, will need new patterns and new suppliers and hope that this forum will give me ideas and help.

Hello Wombat and welcome!

You'll certainly find no end of ideas on here, and there is always someone who can help with problems, no matter how obscure.   8)
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Hi Wombat (lovely name) - I'm fairly new on here and have found everyone to be so welcoming. There is a huge amount of knowledge which is generously shared. I'm sure you'll love it here. :)

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

... The new machine has a push button function as now unfortunately I have physical difficulty using a foot pedal.

I have a start/stop button on my little Brother - I think this is now quite a common feature - and LOVE IT.  I am able bodied, but prefer to use the sliding speed control rather than the footpedal.

Hi wombat, welcome 👍.  Grab a cuppa and pull up a chair, I think you'll find what one of us doesn't know someone else will have the answer to so don't be afraid to ask and there's no such thing as a stupid question.
