    “I LOVE the IDT™ System!”

    “I fell in love with the PFAFF® IDT™ System well over ten years ago, and that love affair continues today! As a professional quilter, I rely on my PFAFF® sewing machine for everything! Here's the beauty... The IDT™ System always delivers! It's the one thing in my sewing room I absolutely couldn't live without!“

  • Sabine O+

    “An amazing benefit!”

    “I love quilting and working with colorful, patterned fabrics. This is why the PFAFF® IDT™ System is ideal for me. When I am quilting, patterned fabrics always match exactly since the fabric is fed from both the top and the bottom - nothing can glide and become offset. This is an amazing benefit that I only see on PFAFF® sewing machines.”

  • Susan Pfaff+

    “The IDT™ System is irreplaceable!”

    “I’ve always counted on IDT™ to let me sew on all different types of fabrics with success. I use many delicate, slippery and stretchy fabrics and because IDT™ feeds both top and bottom layers evenly, the results are perfect. And I love that PFAFF® offers this exclusive technology on almost all of their machines to make it affordable.“
