Pfaff Performance 5.2 REFURBISHED

These refurbished PFAFF Performance 5.2’s have just been serviced and have been given a clean bill of health.  They are very complete and are all in perfect or near perfect condition cosmetically.

They are very well packaged, most in original factory boxes! Comes with a 90 day warranty. Not available in stores, for purchase online only.

Sorry, these are no longer available.
