Does anyone use this?  I just got one that is used.  Does anyone have instructions for it?  That did not come with the used product.  Could you email me the instructions?  krjkrj@aol.com  Thanks

Kathleen, I have one but it is so far hidden under my stuff in the stash room - if I can get to it - I'll see if I still have my directions - I think you could probably go to Pfaff and get instructions for it.

Kathleen, I tried to send you a private message but I don't think you have it turned on in your preferences. I have the instructions and also a tip sheet I can send you. They are PDF files so I can't attach them within a post.

Click on my name and you'll see an option to Start a Conversation. Click on that and send me your email address so I can email you the files as an attachment.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Thanks Thea.  The next post from Judy says she has the instructions at hand.  Please don't go digging.  That could take a lot of your time.  Did you not like the product.  What was the problem?  kathy

The Pfaff fabric mover is supposed to work with the Viking model I have (Sapphire 830). I saw it demonstrated at Sew Expo and liked it but didn't want to spend the nearly $600. I found a used one for $50. I hooked it up and it worked except it didn't regulate the stitch and it gives such a small area to work on.  I watched the video, read the instructions but couldn't get it to regulate the stitch. It's now back in the box and sitting in a corner. I may go into the local dealer to see a demo to try to determine if there is something I'm doing wrong.

Judy, saw your 2012 post on the Fab-U-Motion.  I purchased mine in 2012 and we are still having a love/hate relationship.  I got one sheet of instructions on connecting it to my Pfaff Quilter's Expression and have watched a video on U-tube.  Hoping you can help me.  I constantly have a loose bottom thread no matter what the tension is and it also skips stitches and breaks thread.  I can't blame all that on my Pfaff!  I wonder if the sensor is goofy or I just got a lemon.  I wanted it so I could FMQ my own smaller projects but I'm not getting very good quality.  I have arthritic hands and I thought this would solve my problem!  

Thanks for any input.  You can e-mail directly at puffinpower@peak.org.

 

 

Jan, also in the beautiful northwest.  I love Bellingham but I'm in Oregon!
