For over 150 years, PFAFF has developed premium sewing machines distinguished by their sophisticated appearance, superior performance and exhibiting ultimate design freedom.




A close watch on the industry needs and trends has become increasingly important as sewing has evolved from a necessity to a form of creative expression. And this evolution is something Pfaff takes very seriously. It has inspired their product development to be driven by insight, not just demand. And as a result, their products embody the innovative technology and best-in-class craftsmanship by today’s most passionate creators – required by those who wish to stand out in a crowd. A variety of Pfaff sewing machines will be graciously provided in each sewing and quilting classroom by Thornton Co.
