THIS MACHINE IS GREAT FOR MY FRIENDS AND I THAT QUILT. THE WALKING FOOT IS BUILT IN AND THIS HELPS WITH PIECING AND QUILTING BY KEEPING THE PIECES FROM SHIFTING. THE MACHINE IS LIGHT WEIGHT AND WE CAN TRAVEL TO QUILT CLASSES OR ELSEWHERE WITHOUT LUGGING OUR BIG MACHINES.

I just bought my Passport a month ago. I wanted to like this machine... I really did. First the positive: I bought it because I needed a smaller machine to take to classes and for when I travel. It does serve that function well. It's smaller and lighter weight than most other sewing machines and yet it's not a "basic" machine... it has many decorative stitches and some advanced functions (speed control, twin needle capability, etc.). The lighting is good, it's reasonably quiet, and it makes a nice looking stitch. I also VERY much like the IDT feed system which does seem to keep the layers together better than other sewing machines. It's definitely a high quality machine and the manual is very good.What I didn't like: I think the control buttons are hard to push. I also had trouble right out of the box, getting the tension adjusted... finally (after a couple of hours) realized it was a problem with the bobbin tension. I did get it resolved but it took me awhile. It was my fault, not the machine's but I've just never had that issue before on my other sewing machines. Since it is a three-quarters size machine, it doesn't give you much "head room" when you're trying to thread the needle, etc... just not enough room to move my big hands around so it's uncomfortable at times. This may be the perfect machine for you... there's really nothing wrong with it. It just isn't super comfortable for me with my big hands. I'll still keep it for classes and travel but I'll use my Juki for sewing when I'm at home.

I love the machine. It sew a very nice stitch. Very light and easy to cart to class. Makes a very nice button hole. The only thing I wish it had is the button to cut the thread at the end of a seam. Thanks Pfaff for this portable machine.
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
