    Hi Sara,
    your videos is really helpful. Thank you so much for sharing your experience.
    Actually, I am planning to buy a new sewing and embroidery machine and I want to know your recommendation. Which is better from your point of view? Pfaff, Juki, Janome or singer (within the price range of Pfaff creative 1.5)?

    1. Sara says:

      Hi Dina,

      I would select the Pfaff brand myself, but please remember part of your purchase is what the store can offer to you. We always say you are buying the store, not the brand. Here is a blog we wrote about this topic:

      The Pfaff 1.5 does offer a lot of features for the price. If you have a Pfaff store in your area, please check it out for yourself.

        Pozdrav, već sam kupila PFAFF 1.5 te sada istražujem njegove mogučnosti. Ja sam iz Hrvatske i žao mi je da nema nijedan prevod uputa na Hrvatskom.

          Sorry, we don’t speak Croatian.
