Passport to Sewing

by Cathy Ellsaesser, posted on

Imagine a sewing machine compact enough to whisk away to a sewing class, or fit in your bookshelf. Now, imagine this same machine is chock-full of features designed to meet the high demands of the PFAFF® sewer. The PFAFF® passport™ 3.0 is specially designed for small spaces, as well as going places such as classes, retreats or any sewing journey.

The PFAFF Passport 3.0 is your passport to venture out in the world and discover new ways and new places to sew! No limits. Just freedom.

PFAFF’s Integrated Dual Feed (IDT)

PFAFF IDT System rear view

Achieve absolutely even fabric feed from both the top and the bottom with PFAFF’s IDT system built right into the machine. A lever with teeth on top of the fabric work with the lower feed dogs to feed the fabric layers evenly.

From the heaviest or thickest fabric to the thinnest or lightest, your stitches are even and balanced. Sew over multiple layers of denim or through the thinnest layers of tricot without a hitch.

100 Stitches

The PFAFF Passport 3.0 has a wide variety of beautiful 7mm stitches. These include utility stitches, buttonholes, decorative stitches, quilt stitches, needle art stitches and satin stitches.

A handy pull out card on the side of the machine number each stitch for easy retrieval. Just type in the number of the stitch you want on the keypad on the front of the machine. Then press it “i” button to see the recommended foot, and you are ready to sew.

PFAFF® Original Presser Foot System

With 100 stitches, you’ll need some presser feet! The PFAFF Passport 3.0 comes with 6 presser feet:

  • Standard presser foot 0A with IDT™ system
  • Fancy stitch foot 1A with IDT™ system
  • Fancy stitch foot 2A
  • Blindhem foot 3 with IDT™ system
  • Zipper foot 4 with IDT™ system
  • One step Buttonhole foot 5B

In addition, many optional accessories are available to expand the sewing experience.

Thread Snips

Touch the scissor button, and both the top and bobbin thread are cut and pulled to the bottom of the fabric.

But Wait, There’s More!

PFAFF packed so many features in the small but mighty Passport 3.0.

Start/Stop Button

Look, Ma, no feet! Press the Start/Stop button to sew without the foot control. Makes sewing long seams, free-motion and buttonholes easy.

Speed Slider

Adjust the sewing speed with the speed slider. Slow it down when children or inexperienced sewists are using the machine. The slower speeds are also great when doing exacting top stitching or free motion quilting.

Ready to chain piece or sew up some seams? Then just adjust the speed slider to your liking.

External Feed Dog Drop

Lower the feed dogs from the back of the free arm for stippling, free motion embroidery or darning.

Two LED Light Sources

Optimized bright lights illuminate your sewing area without shadows.

Stitch Menu Card

Pull out the card that is conveniently located on the right side of the machine to view the complete collection of stitches.
