This listing is for a Pfaff 1209. It has been fully serviced and reconditioned by our master Pfaff technician. This machine was made in Germany and is a true work of precision and quality. This Pfaff includes the RARE snap-on presser foot system, allowing the user a greater availability of specialized Pfaff sewing accessories to purchase.

We have this machine listed as Collector’s Grade. This machine is in rare, gorgeous condition with original parts, foot control, hard cover, etc.   The 1209 rarely comes along in this condition as it is known as a workhorse and are normally used hard. This one was used gently and lovingly.

The Pfaff 1209 is a heavy-duty, no-nonsense sewing machine with IDT DUAL FEED. It has a free arm and a high speed, industrial rotary hook system for perfect stitch quality. Tensions are stable and reliable thanks to the all-metal hook and the advanced, universal tension system on the upper tension. Pfaff built this machine with heavy-duty expectations and the 1209 has proven worthy of the Pfaff name.

The Pfaff 1209 has 5 push button stitches including basic, utility and stretch stitches. The buttonhole is a 4-step buttonhole. Stitches are selected by depressing the buttons on the machine, set the stitch length and you are ready to stitch! Easy to use, trouble free, and made to last.   This is the perfect machine for the seamstress looking for quality, precision and a machine that is built to last. Quilters will love this machine because of the built in IDT dual feeding system…both layers will feed together with absolute precision…think of it as 4-wheel drive for the sewing machine.

The Pfaff 1209 was made in Germany from 1978-1983  during the time when all the parts were produced in the Pfaff factory. (no outsourcing). The hook was produced using a process referred to as a “lost wax mold”, producing the most precise and perfect hook design in the industry. Pfaff machines were born from the industrial sewing machine division, and features such as the high speed industrial rotary hook and the built-in walking foot (IDT) were direct results of this partnership of household and industrial divisions of the same company. Pfaff has a proud history of innovation, quality and longevity, and this machine is no exception, and is truly worthy of the Pfaff name and reputation.

Included with this listing:

Foot controller, accessories, instruction book and slide on storage/work support. Original hard cover is also included.


About our Refurbished Pfaff machines:

Brubaker’s Sewing Center has been a Pfaff Dealer since 1952. In the year 2000, Pfaff was sold to the SVP Group (Husqvarna Viking and Singer). When we learned that the new owners were closing the German factory we had the foresight to buy as many german parts, circuit boards and components that we could get our hands on. As a result, we have a great supply of parts and components to service and restore our beloved German Pfaff machines.  It is because of this that we can offer these machines with a full, 1 year warranty. 

Additionally, these machines have been completely rebuilt/refurbished to “as new” or “one off” factory condition. The prices will vary solely on cosmetic condition. All are perfect running, finely tuned as they would be if you had purchased the machine new. While there are risks associated with purchasing a used sewing machine, we try to alleviate that risk by offering you this warranty, and know that these machines, while used, are still much better in quality than any new sewing machine produced today.  If you are a serious sewer or quilter, a German Pfaff will give you years of trouble-free sewing.
