Pfaff Passport 3 for sale. Reduced
« on: December 03, 2019, 12:13:44 PM »
Looks like my new machine may well happen but unfortunately it means parting with this little gem, I bought it to take to classes and also as an opportunity to learn the Pfaff system, it has had very little use and is in first class condition.
I would rather it was collected as I have had a bad experience with delivery services but I would also deliver if it is within a reasonable distance.  I live in Surrey not too far from Guildford.  I would like £450.00. Please ask if you have any questions

I forgot to say I have the extension table to go with this machine which I will through in, it is the proper Pfaff one with the carrying bag.

Just realised this has IDT on.   Far too many temptations on this site without even venturing on to the internet.  I'm afraid something has to die or I sell before I get another machine.

There again if anybody wants a Bernina Activa 215 with lots of feet (most never used), extension table and with the standing assessory box I could be tempted. :S

@Gernella I do know what you mean if I had my way I would love to have more machines not less but space in my tiny sewing come office room is at a real premium,
I do really link the Passport it is such a lovely light but sturdy machine  but having just got my Husqvarnaviking Topaz 40 I feel I must let it go, I will miss the idt.

Just bumping this post up and reducing the price to £395 having just acquired ( it came looking for me) an old BERNINA I am even more in need of space. 
The passport is great for taking to classes or just moving around the house as it is very self contained and not too heavy  I just don’t do classes

Just acquired an old Bernina @Celia ?  Was my own 'acquisition' of your 1530 too much to bear?  0_0

Of course, I'm no-one to talk! She's humming along very nicely for me, by the way, and I'm getting faster on the trackball too but I think the others are giving me dagger looks.  :S

@Marniesews yes I think it must have been :devil:  really I had no intention of getting another machine but I have always wanted one that does large lettering and the 180 does.
I was told about this machine a long time ago I said I might be interested but heard nothing, then all of a sudden it turned up with no warning It was  left with a friend for me, I just couldn’t say no.
I am really glad you are getting on with the 1530 it really is a great machine and in such good condition unfortunately the 180 has needed  a lot of attention but seems ok now.

She's in beautiful condition @Celia and is attracting all my attention at the moment.  :loveit:

Of my others, the one that comes closest is my 1020 but I miss the knee lift so badly I tend to use the --30 models more. Ironically the 1130 in the worst cosmetic condition (she had a hard life, poor girl) actually sews better than the one that was cosseted throughout her life.  ><
