This is Madeline! She is a Pfaff Tiptronic 2040. She was my mother's but when I expressed an interest in sewing on a serious level, she came out of her closet home to live with me in Arkansas. She is now back home and seems much happier for the frequent use.
She is slightly temperamental, and doesn't like to be rushed, but as long as I slow down and pay attention to what I'm doing, she works like a charm. She is certainly higher quality than anything I could have managed for a first machine otherwise! I am still trying to figure out all her special capabilities, and can't wait to try out the double needle I just bought, and see what that will do!
