Pfaff 160: Pfaff – Sewing Machines

Pfaff Smarter 160s/140s Review | Sewing Insight

I’m one of those people who just loves to just drop in to sewing machine and fabric shops just to see what’s new.

On a recent visit to Cynthia’s Fine Fabrics in Tamarac, Florida, I saw two brand new Pfaff sewing machines that hadn’t even been uncrated yet… the Pfaff 140 and 160.

Cynthia explained that they were the latest releases in the Smarter line from Pfaff and promised to call me to come in for a review as soon as they were unpacked. She is definitely a woman of her word. About a week later, I received that invitation.

At A Glance

The Pfaff 160s and 140s are identical in almost every way. The differences are that the 160s has pink accents and the accents on the 140s are lime green.

Pfaff Smarter 160s-140s

Each machine has two large dials, a stitch selection dial bearing pictures of each stitch and a stitch length adjustment dial on front along with a stitch width adjustment dial on top.

There is also an easy to follow thread guide, seam guides etched onto the needle plate, a large reverse stitch button and a free arm.


A stitch selection dial and a stitch length adjustment dial

  • Automatic needle threader
  • On board accessories case
  • Free arm
  • Oversized reverse stitch button
  • Bright LED lighting
  • Adjustable stitch length and width
  • Drop in bobbin
  • Adjustable presser foot pressure
  • Adjustable needle positioning

Working on the Pfaff Smarter 160s/140s

Since the Pfaff 160s and 140s are almost identical, I reviewed only one – the 160s. In addition to the fact that the 160s has pink accents and the accent color on the 140s is green, there are really only two major differences between the two machines:

1. The 160s has an automatic buttonhole feature while the 140s offers a four step buttonhole only.
2. The 160s has 22 utility and decorative stitch options; the 140s has 20.

With the easy to follow thread guides, and detail graphic on board instructions as to how to wind the bobbin, a child of seven or eight could easily master threading the Pfaff Smarter 160s or 140s with minimum of guidance.

Selecting the desired stitch is just as easy. All that is required is to turn the lower dial to the position of the stitch you want.

Turn the upper colored dial to adjust the length of the stitch. If you wish to adjust the stitch width, the stitch width adjustment dial is located on top of the machine, to the right of the tension adjustment dial.

Detail graphic on board instructions

The quality of the stitches produced by the Pfaff Smarter 160s that I reviewed is acceptable, but not what I would consider great.

While the stitches are tight and sturdy, they are not as well defined as I would have preferred – especially the single strand straight stitch.

Tight and sturdy stitches

If you compare the straight stitches made on the Pfaff 160s with the straight stitches made on other machines in its class, I would say that the Pfaff 160s gets a passing grade, but not anything more.

The decorative stitches, on the other hand, were much better in terms of definition. That’s a bit ironic, I would say, since it’s normally the decorative stitches that are inferior to the utility stitches if there is any discrepancy at all.

Based upon performance alone, the Pfaff Smarter 160s and 140s are excellent machines for the beginner.

People who have been sewing for a very long time and those who have been sewing for just a short while, but know all of the basics of sewing machine operation and clothing construction will not be disappointed with either one of these mechanical sewing machines.

While I am not overly enthusiastic about the quality of the very basic utility stitches, my one real hesitation about these machines is not performance, but the materials used to make them.

The cover and the machine itself seem to be made with an inferior grade of plastic – the hard kind of plastic that cracks very easily.

I cannot help but wonder what would happen if the cover were dropped or if the machine were accidentally bumped or dropped.

The feel of the plastic used on the cover which doubles as a carrying case and the body of the sewing machines reminds me of the same type of plastic used to make inexpensive toys. To me, it seems hard and brittle and not at all durable or resilient.

If the material used to make these machines and the dust covers were more durable, I would not have any reservations about recommending the Pfaff Smarter 160 and140 for taking along on vacation or to the dorm room. Its delicate construction, however, negates that option as far as I’m concerned.

Should you decide that you want to add one of these new sewing machines to our sewing room inventory, I caution you to be very careful when moving it about within your home and under no circumstances do I believe you should take this one on the road.

The more you move it about, the greater the risk of damaging the carrying case or the body of the machine.

Providing you don’t move them around a lot, these are good sewing machines for teaching the art of sewing – especially if your students are children.

The large dials and easy to follow on board threading and bobbin winding guides are excellent for youngsters as well as some seniors who may be challenged by arthritis or diminishing eyesight.

In my opinion, anyone who has been sewing for any length of time would be able to appreciate the simplicity of these machines; and anyone who is just beginning to learn to sew would appreciate the fact that they are so easy to use.

A carrying case

The less than stellar quality of the utility stitches is not a major deterrent only because the stitches DO fit the bill in terms of what they are supposed to look like and their stability.

Over time, I have noticed that many of the newer sewing machines do not render the superior stitch quality that is reminiscent of our grandmothers’ old straight stitch only sewing machines.

In many cases, the more options and features that are available, the sacrifice of the user in terms of stitch quality and machine durability.

Perhaps I’m being overly critical. Perhaps it’s just that I expect more from a new sewing machine and when I don’t get it, I feel obligated to bring it to your attention.

On a more pleasant note… I believe the Pfaff Smarter 160s is, a viable choice for anyone who wants a stable, mechanical sewing machine.

The stitch quality is not the best, but it is still very good. Beginners, especially younger beginners, will be able to master the threading process and operation of these machines very fast, leaving them free to hone their sewing skills and perfecting their sewing technique.

I do not recommend these machines for anyone who does a lot of heavy duty sewing. They are far too fragile to take the punishment that they would have to undergo just because of the material they are made with.

However, if your sewing projects are primarily apparel items and accessories, and if you do not sew more than one or two days per week, you might be very happy with one of these new mechanical sewing machines.

Smarter by Pfaff 160s sewing machine

I am thrilled to tell you all about the New Smarter by Pfaff.  I hope this is the start of a new era for Pfaff. Pfaff sewing machines have tended to be on the larger scale,   bigger and better; now they are also producing smaller and better. The new 160 is a fantastic rival to the machines which already hold firm standings in a very established range of sewing machines. This machine holds an arsenal of 23 stitches which range from your ordinary utility stitches to decorative and stretch stitches and an automatic buttonhole stitch. With the range of stitches available on this machine, it makes it an excellent companion to any budding sewers.

The machine looks and feels light, bright, quirky and bold but also very solid and firm. Some machines you can literally bend in your hands,  a tell tale sign of poor quality. This machine will not bend… it is rigid, even the stitch dials and hand wheel with their responsiveness and rubberised texture, scream out quality. How does the machine run?… as you would expect a Pfaff machine to run… with ease, confidence and precision. This machine also has that all important hard cover, vitally important for protecting your machine when in storage.

Features of this machine are:

  • Top Drop in Bobbin
  • Clear view bobbin visor
  • 7 point feed system for perfect feed
  • Integrated drop feed
  • Capable of twin needle sewing (optional)
  • 6 mm wide stitches
  • Automatic Needle Threader
  • Adjustable presser foot pressure
  • Fully Adjustable top tension dial
  • Adjustable Stitch width
  • Movable straight stitch needle position
  • Twin needle spool fitment
  • Adjustable stitch length
  • 23 Available Stitches
  • 6″ sewing bed area
  • Threading Guide
  • LED Light
  • Free arm sewing
  • accessory storage tray
  • Reverse sewing for tie off
  • Snap on presser feet

Standard Accessories:

4xBobbins, Felt pad, Screw Driver, Large Spool Cap, Small Spool cap, Mixed pack of needles (70, 80 & 90 standard point, size 90 jeans, size 90 stretch), lint brush/quick unpic, Automatic button hole foot, twin needle spool pin, quilting bar/edge guide, Zig Zag foot (comes fitted), Clear view foot, Blind hem foot, Zipper foot, Electronic Foot Control and a Hard Cover. Plus an easy to under stand instruction manual.

It’s one we recommend, but if you’re still not 100% sure if its the right sewing machine for you, we offer 30 day returns.!

There is no double needle in the kit, but it can be solved.

Trofimova Svetlana, 05/15/2018

Sews all fabrics, the presence of overlock stitching, not capricious, not noisy, which is the most important thing for me.

For a year of working with this machine I did not find any drawbacks)

My husband gave me this sewing machine for my birthday, chose it on the website, bought it and never regretted it! she sews everything! The knitted overlock stitch is very comfortable – no worse than overlock! I sewed so many things for myself and my daughter! I am satisfied with the purchase, now the needs have increased) I also plan to buy an overlock.

Guest, 11.12.2017

Very good machine. Comfortable, reliable, beautiful and neat seams. He sews knitwear very well, it is only important to choose the right needle and stitch parameters. Handles light and heavy fabrics with ease…When sewing does not vibrate – this is important. The presser foot holder is very convenient, it is easy to change the presser foot. When winding the thread onto the bobbin, no handwheel manipulation is required. Easy threading of the upper thread, the hook device allows you to control the amount of the lower thread. LED lighting, the machine does not overheat from the lamp. Authorized service center is available. All the necessary feet and accessories can be additionally purchased without problems. The machine has standard bobbins and sews with standard needles.

This is not a disadvantage, but a little expensive only for an electromechanical machine …. But this is Pfaff. The quality is impeccable. If we compare with machines of this class from other manufacturers, the difference is immediately visible.

It will not be at all difficult for a beginner to understand the development. Very good instructions for use and care. It is very pleasant to work with this typewriter! … New ideas come up all the time and it does an excellent job. A lot of exclusive things have already been created on it…. I think that this machine is just right for a small home studio. Blouses and coats and a lot of textiles for the interior were also sewn on her. Highly recommend!

Erdnieva Zanda, 17.10.2017
