Customer testimonials

I am absolutely delighted with my new Pfaff 260 smarter sewing machine! I'd had my previous one for 40 years and was a bit wary about buying a new machine, would it be as good? I'm a keen home stitcher and always have projects on the go, dressmaking, repairs and soft furnishings Well it is fabulous, easy to use: what a boon having the bobbin right on the top, no more scrabbling about under the needle. Threading the needle, With the help of the nifty 'needle threader' is super easy & 'clip on' feet, so easy So far I love everything about this machine. The only extra I feel I need to purchase is a 'rolled hem' foot. I really didn't pay too much attention to the free gift........ but oh my, Frister & Rossman scissors, really worth having! & 50! Full size Frister & Rossman thread I don't think I'll ever need any other threads as long as I live! Superb machine, delivered the very next day with extras!!!

Brilliant. Best Customer Service.
Thanks so much to the team at SMD. They gave me advise on different machines before I bought one, I haven't sewn for a long time. The delivery was super fast, I was able to track it myself, and it arrived the next day. I got a little stuck when I tried to use the machine but I got great help afterwards too. They spend time with me on the phone even though it was a really busy day for them and they had lots going on themselves. They called me back when they said they would which is a miracle in itself these days. I really couldn't ask for more. Thank you to all at SMD.

WOW! The best service I've ever had.
I ordered a Pfaff Smarter 260c at 4.15 on the Weds after Xmas and it arrived at 11.15 the next day (with texts from the delivery co and options to amend delivery if necessary). The machine is fab and so is SMD's service. I had a problem getting the tension right and called their Helpline who diagnosed the problem and coached me through how to put it right (I hadn't loaded the bobbin right). I wouldn't hesitate using this company again and would thoroughly recommend them.
