  1. Hair on cowhides

    Hello everybody! Could you give me some tips on sewing hair on cowhides? I'll be using a Pfaff 335. Should I handle it in any special way? Should I pay attention to anything in particular? Thanks, Georgia
  2. Full Grain Leather supply in Europe needed

    Hello! You could try Leather Cosmos. https://www.leathercosmos.com/ They're located in Greece, their prices are great and they're very helpful. They have a large variety in leather, much larger than what is displayed on their site. I shop from them all the time and I like their quality. Hope I could help
  3. Thanks! These feet are lifesavers. I think I spotted them in College Sewing site.
  4. You're right. I need to keep in mind leather thickness plus the cord.
  5. I hadn't considered this fact. I had in mind fabric but leather is so much thicker.
  6. Well I mainly sew bags and I would like to try also duffels.
  7. Thank you! You're right. It's good to know European resources. It reduces the shipping cost.
  8. Hello! I just bought a Pfaff 335 with the valuable help of some members of the forum. It came with the standard walking feet (1/4"). Which other feet would you suggest to buy? I was thinking of the 1/8". Georgia

    Finally the fun begins. I have to learn a lot of things and ask again a lot of questions. Thanks again for your help!
  11. Pfaff 335

    Thanks! It was a bargain and I'm overly excited! I'm very lucky because his shop is very close to my house so he was willing to deliver it.

    Thanks everybody for your help. I tested the first machine and it's working great so I decided to buy it. The final deal includes the 335 with plain walking feet, servo motor and 2-year warranty for 650€. I'm anxiously waiting for it to be delivered Georgia

    Thanks for the feedback! I totally agree with your suggestion about local sellers since I'm inexperienced with industrial machines. Plus they offer me a warranty for 1 or 2 years. My main concerns are whether the country of production affects seriously the machine's quality and the clutch vs servo motor. I'll make my decision soon though because I really want a Pfaff!

    Thanks again for the great tips! Georgia
  15. Pfaff 335

    Hello! Sorry to bother you again but I would like your opinion. I found another Pfaff 335 (from Taiwan this one and not from Germany like the previous 335) with walking foot instead of a binding. The vendor has repaired it and gives me a 1-year warranty. The price is €600 (€200 less than the other one) and he can sell me the set foe binding for €100. He also sells an Adle, a Necchi and a Seiko but he recommended the Pfaff which is the cheapest by the way. I'm confused! What would you advise me to do? Which one would you choose?
