PFAFF Performance Icon sewing machine is an incredibly feature-rich and innovative tool that will enable every sewist to flourish. It's a true master of all disciplines. There are features that dressmakers, quilters, and home dec enthusiasts will love and come to rely on.

The centerpiece is the huge tablet-like touch screen that allows you to control the vast number of features in a logical and user-friendly way. The Performance Icon is physically large too, providing a huge work area for those large projects that are difficult to manipulate on standard machines.

The Pfaff Creative Icon is so big and beautiful and does EVERYTHING you could ever want.”The Pfaff Performance Icon follows hot on the heels of their very much loved and very very big Creative Icon combination embroidery and sewing machine. Taking on board the pleas of Pfaff lovers over the world, who wanted to focus purely on sewing and quilting, Pfaff has separated the entire sewing component from the machine embroidery component of the Creative Icon. The end result is the Performance Icon, a fully loaded, top-of-the-line quilter’s edition machine that takes industry advancement by the horns, and proudly boasts of being the market leader in its field.

What does that mean for you? As a quilter, you have more space than anyone else, with a very roomy 31cm (12.2 inches) wide and 14cm (5.1 inches) high sewing area; as a sewer, you have incomparable interaction with your stitches on the tablet-like screen complete with pinch and zoom functions; and as a creator of beautiful masterpieces, you have the absolute best that Pfaff can offer the sewing world.

Removing the machine embroidery component of this Icon-series machine was a stroke of genius by Pfaff, making pinnacle levels of luxury available to passionate quilters, without the added expense of an unwanted embroidery module and functionality.
