Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I believe the recommended Pfaff models are the 12xx, specifically the 1222, and most of the ones that come with the IDT.

As you can see a Bernina is good enough for Tim Benson



and he makes, without question, the finest made kites available.

Tim iirc uses a Bernina 950 which is a more industrial grade machine. Talking to him a while back is what convinced me to add that model to my list.

My sewing repair guy has a few used Pfaffs that have the walking foot(IDT) built in, but not sure which models. I've also found a used Bernina 950 at a moving sale and a few other options. My rocketeer model singer is great and I'll keep using it but I want a second machine.

Eventually I'll have 3 machines at least since I've gotten more custom banner and awning cover work lately. A dedicated straight stitch and two "all around" types.  I have the walking foot add on for my main singer and it's a godsend for sewing sail cloth and multiple layers of cloth on appliqué and edges.

I'd love to have a more industrial machine I can use spools on instead of bobbins but those are out of my budget. I'll be talking to my repair guy more on what he has in the next few days. If the prices are good and he's willing to ship I'll post the info on here.

Thanks Rob, thief and skb.  There is a 1" gap in the stitching about 6 inches

down from the nose. Now the head is rounded.

Sweet.
