Speak to the Pfaff dealer where you bought it and tell them....they will probably arrange a replacement with little fuss.

Don't put the blame on the equipment and instruction manuals. Put the blame on the dealer that sold you the equipment. That is who should be ultimately responsible to you to make sure that everything is working together properly.

Most reputable dealers will have some type of support for you if you are having a problem using products that they sold you.

Now, in your dealer's defense, if you refused to include set up and support in your purchase in order to negotiate a lower price, or, you purchased from multiple dealers or (heaven forbid) online, you are now on your own unless you can get a knowledgeable person to adopt you.

Many dealers are willing to forgive your transgressions of getting the best price if you will purchase a set up package even if you purchased elsewhere. Remember, we make a living selling machines and keeping our clients happy. If a shopper purchases anywhere the product is cheaper and then we spend our time offering free service, we go broke and our loyal clients are left out.

Remember two things:
1. Build a relationship with a reputable dealer and they will take care of you.

2. Shop for that reputable dealer first, shop for a make and model second. If you don't have a reputable dealer, the brand name means nothing.

I have a Pfaff hobby 1200. When I try to quilt ( it is on an Inspira frame) it sews fine on the top but the bottom side is all loopy. What are the correct tension #'s I can use? I use cotton thread.


It could be a variety of things. Be sure you are using a brand new sharp needle (try a topstitch, embroidery, or microtex needle on woven cotton). Be sure the needle eye is large enough to accommodate the thread weight. Different needles have a different scarf (the groove that is on the back of the needle that runs up from the needle eye). A larger scarf will protect the thread and keep the thread from hanging up on the fabric when the needle is withdrawn from the fabric.

Also, the upper tension may be too loose if it is still showing loops under the fabric.

Another cause is the fabric being stretched too tight on the frame causing trampolining.

What are the correct thread tension numbers on thePfaff hobby grand quilter 1200


Usually, the standard tension for upper thread is midway between high & low numbers. However, every machine differs and may need to be tweaked. Unfortunately, finding the correct tension is generally a test and adjust method. Be sure you are using a brand new needle and good quality thread.
