As soon as you flick on the switch and wait 4 seconds, the synchronizes rotate and after a few movements of the needle bar, the vibrant colour touch screen blasts into life. You can really tell this is the Rolls Royce's of sewing machines. The new Pfaff Creative 4.5 has arrived. It boasts ribbon stitches, stitch creator, precise positioning and the long arm sewing bed that is becoming a must have when stitching larger projects.
The Creative 4.5 comes as a stand alone fully computerized sewing machine with the ability to add on a larger embroidery unit at a later stage. Together you have a fantastic piece of equipment, designed to sew all kinds of materials whether you are customizing home furnishings, modifying clothes or creating something from scratch...this machine will fulfil your every desire. With the embroidery unit it gives the option to embroider 270 beautiful designs. Each can be placed exactly where you want using Pfaff's precise positioning. It has also been designed to sew 30% faster thanks to exact tolerances and no error manufacturing techniques. Yes, it will cut the jump stitches between colour changes. Plus you can edit designs on screen. Editing options are: mirror, rotate, scale designs without changing stitch count, group design elements, edit or even single stitche edit, undo/redo function, change thread colours or sew in a continuous colour without a stop. A nice feature I like to use often is the built in basting. This allows you to baste either around the hoop edge or around the design edge. Both will hold the fabric and stabilizer secure in the hoop so there is far less material movement whilst the design is being sewn. When buying the machine with the embroidery unit it gives the opportunity to use the Windows PC based design organiser software.
With out the embroidery unit, it offers a huge 480 stitch patterns, including maxi stitches up to 48 mm wide. Regular sewing machines sew a 5 or 6mm wide stitch. Not so with the Creative 4.5, you can sew up top 9 mm wide when stitching out decorative stitches. The new ribbon stitches are fantastic; watch the short video we made showing how to sew one of these new built-in ribbon stitches.
Using the stitch creator gives you the ability to build your very own 9 mm wide decorative stitches. Imagine any stitch you have seen in the past or maybe a design that has been in your head for a long time, well now you have the ability to design it and sew it out yourself.!
The Creative 4.5 can also taper decorative patterns. It has specific patchwork programs that can even remember the exact seam length then repeat it over and over again. Sewing applique is easy too, the stitch density can be adjusted.
Other computerized features include, both top and bobbin thread cutter, needle up/down, start/stop button, max speed controller, free-motion modes, stacking stitches, knee lifter, top and bobbin thread sensors, LED lights, automatic presser foot lifter, memory, accessory tray x 2.
