Pfaff performance 2056 featuring
IDF Feed System
Discover your own passion for sewing
with one of the best sewing machines in the world. What do
people who love to sew have in common? The love of experimentation - creativity
- individuality. A touch of tenacity. And, of course, they expect
only perfection. For them, we have the perfect sewing companion -
the Pfaff performance 2056 - the real
passion for sewing. Absolutely even fabric feed from top and bottom!
The large high-resolution touch screen provides easy access to stitches
and programs. The Pfaff performance 2056
programs are special features that makes sewing a true pleasure. The
Pfaff performance 2056 stitch package
programs have a large stitch selection of high quality stitches, beautiful
down to the last detail! Including 9-mm stitches!
It has an easy to read and use touch screen. Everything is large and easy
to read on the high-resolution display and just a light touch of the finger
or stylus is needed to see what this machine can do.
with the Pfaff performance 2056
- Concentrate entirely on the sewing. The convenient knee lift raises
the presser foot, leaving your hands free to work with the fabric.
- Permanent reverse at the touch of a button. Your hands are free to
guide the fabric.
- Easy threading. Just follow the marked threading path and thread the
needle quickly with the integrated needle threader.
- Important for longer seams: the thread monitor will warn you when
the bobbin thread is getting low. You can then re-wind the bobbin, directly
through the needle, without having to re-thread your machine or release
the hand wheel.
- Set the thread tension to the optimal setting for any fabric or sewing.
- Refinements taken from ready-to-wear: perfect eyelets for lacing cords
and ribbons; a "triangle bar tack" for reinforcing skirt vents;
and a straight bar tack for securing pockets, ends of zippers, and belt
- Nineteen needle positions: Move the needle and not the fabric. You
always sew precisely along the edge, which is indispensable, for example,
when sewing zippers in place. And when the sewing gets tough, just press
the "Sew slow" button to reduce the speed.
- Sewing heavy fabrics or several layers? No problem. There is
extra-high clearance under the presser foot. No matter how fast you
are sewing or how many layers you are working with, the electronically
controlled needle piercing power remains consistently strong.
- Extra-slender free arm for sewing sleeves and trousers.
- Quick presser foot change, thanks to the "Snap-on" system
– just snap them on or off.
- The feed dogs can be comfortably lowered from the front of the machine
– a great advantage for free motion quilting.
- Lots of room in the large accessory tray.
- At the heart of the Pfaff performance 2056
is a strong aluminum casing.
The Pfaff performance 2056 stitch programs
The Pfaff performance "Automatic tie-off" program. Select
this function and the Pfaff performance 2056
automatically backstitches at the beginning and end of a seam, and the
presser foot is lifted, as if by magic.
The Pfaff performance "Needle up/down" program. This
is the ultimate in sewing simplicity. When this program is engaged, the
needle remains in the fabric when sewing stops and the presser foot automatically
raises to your pre-selected position. Now you can easily turn the fabric.
If desired, the presser foot can automatically lower into the sewing position
when you press the foot control and your Pfaff performance 2056
The Pfaff performance "Express Sequence" function. Use
the touch screen to set up to 99 repeats of individual stitches or stitch
sequences. The beginning and end will be automatically tied off. Save
your original stitches or sequences in one of the 40 memories and return
to them whenever you like.
The Pfaff performance "Free motion" program. When the
"free motion" program is activated, the presser foot is automatically
set to the embroidery and darning position. The fabric can now be moved
freely. Stitch length and thread tension can be adjusted however you like.
The Pfaff performance "Patchwork" program. Do you sew
the same size pieces together, over and over? Just select the "Patchwork
program" and then sew the seam length once. The Pfaff performance 2056
saves the seam length and repeats it as often as needed. If desired, it
will also tie-off the end of each seam and automatically lift the presser
foot. This is pure patching pleasure.
The Pfaff performance "Twin needle" program. Sew decorative
stitches with a twin needle for especially spectacular effects. The "twin
needle" program automatically re-calculates the pattern to the selected
width. You'll be amazed at the results.
With the Pfaff performance Stitch package, you'll find every stitch you'll
ever need: 195 stitches and four alphabets with numerals and symbols.
Utility stitches, overlock stitches, buttonholes, darning programs, hemstitches,
and decorative stitches, including beautiful 9 mm wide decorative stitches
to embellish your creations with an unbelievable quality. And all can
be selected directly on the convenient touch screen. Just choose a stitch
category, number, or illustration – a light touch will do.
Stitches can be mirrored vertically or horizontally – for unlimited creative
The Pfaff performance 2056 memory
All stitch sequences can be saved in one of the 40 memories, to be opened
whenever you need them.
You can also use the "Context menu" to save your personal adjustments
to the general settings of any stitch. If you wish, your settings will
then automatically appear on the screen the next time that you select
The Info button: Whenever you need sewing information, just press the
Info button. Learn all you need to know about your chosen stitch: the
proper presser foot, optimal thread tension, recommended needle, and whether
or not the
IDF Feed System (Integrated Dual Feed) should be engaged.
And there are more automatic functions:
Time for a quick repair? There are two darning programs! Stitch once over
the area to be repaired to automatically set the length. Now just push
the "reverse" button and the Pfaff performance 2056
finishes the darning automatically.
Select the Pfaff performance 2056
basting program to baste your garment for fitting.
Sew on buttons in a flash with the button sewing program.
Decorative effects, interesting buttonholes, and perfect corners: the
tapering program! The Pfaff performance 2056
automatically narrows the width of zigzag stitches during sewing. The
optimal stitch density has been pre-programmed. Just touch the reverse
button and the rest is automatic.
Indispensable: a choice of presser foot clearance levels:
There is the extra-high level for heavy fabrics or several layers; the
medium level for darning, free-hand embroidery or free motion quilting;
and the standard level for most normal sewing.
Unique from Pfaff:
