Located in Kaiserslautern Germany, Pfaff began manufacturing sewing machines in 1862. Pfaff machines from the 1950's and 1960's are highly desirable. These machines can be hard to find and often command premium prices.
Unless otherwise credited, all machines shown are from my personal collection or machines I have previously owned.
Stylish and powerful 1950's zig-zag model. All-metal body with timing-belt drive. Produces a fine satin stitch but can also zig-zag through heavy fabrics. Highly prized by sailers for its ability to repair canvas sails without electricity when fitted with a hand crank.
130 with 50010 attachment
The 50010 attachment could be purchased separately and installed by the dealer. It enabled the 130 to produce an almost infinite variety of decorative zig-zag stitching. Pfaff engineers nicknamed it the "coffee grinder" due to its distinctive mechanical noise.
